We’d Be Terrified To Celebrate Halloween Without These 15 Spooky Snacks

It’s finally that time of year! Whether your entire wardrobe has recently taken a trip to the dark side, or every corner of your life has gone pumpkin spice, you’re probably celebrating spooky season. Every kid (and kid-at-heart) knows they can count down to the end of the month, to the biggest costume candy bash of the year!

All those processed sweets can be hard on your stomach AND your teeth, and your skin might not be the biggest fan of all those artificial ingredients and sweeteners either! That leaves you in a pretty frightful dilemma. Here at Dash, we want you to make the most of your spooky celebrations by feeling your best and looking your best. We decided to round-up our 15 fright fest favs that’ll have you feeling good enough to strike a halloween pose.

 Skip the drug store candy aisle! These candy bars give the same “home-made DIY” feel as the Blair Witch Project, but WAY more delicious. You’ll thank us later. 

  1. Raw Vegan Witch Fingers

For all your favorite crystal carrying, energy sensing, healing vegans. Just don’t leave one of these lying out in the office, or you’ll give someone a fright!

This is the kind of shake that’ll have you feeling spooky healthy in the AM. We picture Patrick Bateman starting his day with this one, the protein from the almond milk could fuel his ravenous exercise routine, while the pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, giving him that KILLER eyesight.

5. Chicken Garlic Vampire Dip

Sink your teeth into this vampire repellant dip and get that immortal vampire glow! Garlic is antimicrobial and antifungal, infamous for its antioxidants that promote longevity of life. Just don’t go for any vampire kisses after, your breath might scare away your next bite.
