Vegan Halloween Candy

If you buy candy off this list, just make sure to check for the most common non-vegan ingredients in candy:

  • Gelatin – created using animal skin, tendons, cartilage, and/or bones.
  • Carmine – red pigment created from crushed female cochineal insects.
  • Confectioner’s Glaze – made from excretions of certain insects.

Ingredients can change at any time, so it’s best to always check the label.

1. Skittles

Skittles have been animal-free since 2010 when they started to no longer use gelatin.


UNREAL’s nut butter cups are vegan and delicious!

Sour Patch Kids are sour, they’re sweet, and they’re vegan! The Sour Patch Watermelon is also vegan!

4. SmartSweets

Love gummies? It can be one of the hardest things to find vegan until now! SmartSweets has a selection of gelatin-free peach rings, sour gummies, and more.
