This year, I’m that house. The one that doesn’t give out candy on Halloween.
But I’m not handing out boxes of stale raisins.
Or the forbidden handmade popcorn balls and other treats of Halloweens past.
I have a bag full of fruit leather to hand out to my Trick or Treaters, thanks to my friends at Stretch Island Fruit Co.
Now, before you moan and grown, I ask you… have you TRIED the fruit leather from Stretch Island? It’s really quite good. And each piece is a half serving of fruit. You’re more likely not NOT throw this treat away, your dentist won’t be entirely unhappy with you about it (still, make sure to brush your child’s teeth thoroughly, as you do with any treat) and it’s not that lame single tootsie roll or dum dum either. (If you’re someone that does that, and you are reading this post, stop being so stingy with your candy, it’s super lame.)
