I Want Candy, All Natural Candy
Having Special K on her special diet put us in a spot when it comes to Halloween and "schwicker freeting" (as Lil' Wingnut would say). I am so glad I have smart and resourceful friends, like Mallu Mom from Moments of Grace. She suggested we take the kids "trick-or-treating" and then swap out Special K's goodies for all natural treats. Great idea! I found an online company that specializes in all natural candy. Their site is truly wonderful. All of their candy is categorized as organic, vegan, gluten-free, made in the USA, and/or being conducive to the Feingold diet. I ordered several different kinds of candy and the box came within a week. We sampled several different types of candies. They were really terrific! The kids especially liked the Frizz Fizzy candy. As far as cost goes, whenever you go all natural it seems the price increases, the Natural Candy Store is no exception. I spent quite a bit more than if I went with Tootsie Rolls or Kit-Kats or what have you, but Special K is worth it, don't you think?
