Ethical Halloween Candy That Doesn’t Suck
Trick or treat? Each Halloween, American kids dress like ghouls, hit the streets, and collect as much candy as their pillowcases can carry. But behind those fun-size treats lies some real horror: Most chocolate producers rely on cocoa at least partially harvested by child slaves. In recent years, select fair-trade manufacturers have gained traction in the chocolate marketplace by eliminating child laborers from their supply chains. But most fair-trade companies don’t market their candies to kids. A hippie-dippy dark-chocolate bar isn’t a very valuable commodity when all the other kids on the block are trading king-size Butterfingers. But there are some offbeat treats out there to satisfy your little monsters. Click through for a guide to the most kid-friendly fair-trade Halloween options.
