Our family is vegan first for ethical reasons and second for health reasons, and then there's the planet and all of the other pros that come along with it. I find my ethical reasons help my health reasons because I am able to throw out ALL of the "Meat Candy" (as my son calls it) without giving in to some just for the taste. I did, however, make some vegan chocolate peanut butter cups (pictured below). That used to be my all-time favorite to receive from someone at Halloween. I was told my homemade ones were better than some famous brand, but that's not confirmed!
So, main points:
- Kids (and adults) get a lot of candy during the holidays.
- The majority of that candy is NOT vegan.
- I am glad for the entire family that we cannot eat the majority of this candy!
