Healthy Halloween

Local sweet treats you can feel good about.



BEFORE YOU BUY that bulk candy, we suggest a trip to SweetE Organic, a candy boutique that values all things natural, homemade and local. “At SweetE, everyone is a kid in a candy store — kids enjoy satisfying treats, and their parents feel good about it,” says Elana Turchon, owner of the Strawberry Village shop. “The products we carry prove that organic candy can be fun and delicious.” Stop by the store November 1–5 for the Halloween Swap and Drop, where you can trade your kid’s candy for a healthier selection. Here are a few of our favorites, straight from SweetE’s shelves. sweeteorganic.com
