Vegan Mofo # 31 Halloween


Halloween. That wonderful day and night were you get to become someone else and get free candy. It is such a happy occasion for millions of children and adults. For vegans though, this can be an incredibly depressing occasion. Because most candy have ingredients that vegans do not eat.

Candy that has white sugar processed using bone char, honey, milk chocolate, butter, and eggs. I used to eat hard (Alicante) Turron until I became vegan. Turron is a beautiful confection of egg whites, honey, sugar, and almonds. Of course there are different varieties from different countries. However, we are not speaking of that kind of candy.

I am speaking of all those sticky, chewy, chocolatey kind. Unfortunately, there is dairy and white sugar involved. One of my favorites that I can no longer have – Snickers. Yet, that problem has been solved.



A great company named  Go Max Go Foods has created a line of vegan candy bars similar to some major bars on the market. Jokerz is the one that has replaced my peanut, caramel, nougat, and milk chocolate covered bar. There is a Buccaneer bar. Can you guess which bar this one emulates? There’s Twilight which has a chocolate nougat, caramel, and a rice milk chocolate covering. I am sure that you can guess which one that one is giving good vegan delights.

There are some pretty tasty vegan candies to be had for Halloween, yet I love caramel, nutty, chocolatey goodness.

I hope every vegan had the most thrilling Halloween.
