While whole, fresh fruit is my healthy snack choice, skip handing it out on Halloween – chances are some parents will throw it away as a safety precaution.
Consider the following this Halloween when choosing what to hand out!
Did You Know? Although no one today seems to know where Hershey’s chocolate Kiss got its name, the most popular theory is that it was named for the sound or motion of the chocolate being deposited during the manufacturing process.

Give out small squares of dark chocolate with at least 70 percent cocoa.
Did You Know? The Snickers candy bar was named after a horse owned by the Mars family.
Go organic, with small boxes of organic raisins, granola bars or fruit wraps.
Give out snack-size bags of air-popped popcorn.
Chocolate with mint in it is usually lower in calories than chocolate with peanut butter, caramel, nuts, etc.
Did You Know? The Curtiss Candy Company, which renamed its candy bar from Kandy Kake to Baby Ruth in 1921, claims its famous chocolate was named after Grover Cleveland’s daughter Ruth and not after baseball legend Babe Ruth.
