10 NON-CANDY Halloween Treats

The sweetest time of the year is coming, literally. On Halloween, supermarket aisles are filled with bags of candies and chocolates where Americans spend more than $2 billion to buy them, and kids go trick-and-treating and bring buckets filled with sweets. And in the end, everyone will consume all those candies.

This Halloween instead of giving away candies and chocolates, try something different:
