As Halloween vastly approaches, one question arises -- What do I give those werewolves and ghosts?

Candy comes as the most traditional answer, but is it the right one?

Most candy that is on the market is made with chocolate, milk, and butter. And those that are nondairy have gelatin. So what does that leave us with? Those hard candies you find in secretary candy bowls. Yum.

Where candy is not an option, unless you like those little peppermint candies, we see much difficulty in what to find to hand out at Halloween.

So, dear readers, I give to you a small list of treats to hand out to help make this a Vegaween (geez, that was as corny as candy corn).

-- Prizes found in cereal boxes
-- Stickers
-- Rubber balls
-- Those monster finger puppets that look like they came from B movies
-- Pencils
-- Erasers (not the boring pink ones, the ones that are shaped and colored like
unicorns and baseballs and bats and cats
-- Temporary tattoos
-- Rings of Cracker Jack quality
-- Kazoos
-- Whistles
-- Clickers (might as well drive the parents really crazy)
-- Pencil toppers
-- Tops
-- Stencils

A lot of these can be bought in bulk at low prices in party stores. Kids love them, and they last a lot longer than a Milky Way.

I hope these ideas help make Halloween easier for you, and better for the animals!
