I just thought I'd let everyone know that I found Non-Candy Halloween treats at Target yesterday.

There were several different styles of sticker boxes. I got one bag of Pooh and one of Scooby Doo. They also had little boxes of "Tattoos" for sale as well.

I can still make home made treats for my guys and for the neighbors that we know. But this year I won't have a bunch of extra candy in the house that I end up eating [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

There is also a large variety of Halloween favors at Michaels craft store.

Spudberry: thanks for posting about these! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
What is the company that makes the Halloween stickers and tattoos? What department of Target did you find them?
I posted about Crayola Halloween crayon packs a few days ago and love the idea of non food treats! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I found them right next to the bags of candy bars in the Halloween section.
For those with little tiny ones - it does say they are a choke hazard for those under 3 - but so is most candy.

Try the Oriental trading Company ([url]http://www.orientaltrading.com[/url] or 1-800-228-2269). They have tons of non-candy Halloween treats, and certain types of peanut-free candy as well. I just posted a note under another thread that they carry Hershey's Sixlets by the box. I had a Halloween party last year and filled the kids' goodie bags with mini-flashlights, kickballs and stickers. They're pretty cheap too.

I bought my Halloween hand outs at Oriental Trading Company. I got the mini halloween erasers. They are all individually packaged, and makes a nice alternative to handing out candy at the door. I am hoping all the kids will like it. (I think they get too much candy anyway).

Well, I already purchsed my candy on sale(wanted to get the safe stuff while it was cheap too), but I think I may make the switch next year to non-candy treats. I put very little candy, and only small pieces in treat bags at birthdays, and I think there is enough aroung that non-candy traets are refreshing for Halloween. Especially for kids with allergies! I think I will need a stash of something for the preschool trick or treat thing. Though I am handing over a "safe" list tomorrow, I will make my stand by sending non-candy for that. In fact, may be at Target or a craft store this even to take care of that! becca

We found little Halloween-themed Snyder's pretzel bags at our Wegman's supermarket.
ps - I was wrong about finding those at Wegman's, it was Target....ooooops

Maybe not the exact same stuff, but I found it to be similiar this year too. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Even tho I don't have anything in our Halloween candy supply [i]my cubs couldn't eat[/i], I am offering "non-candy" items for those with food allergies, or age appropriate toys for the very young. Target made that easy for me. (I also picked up some cool decorations........one of them a motion activated [b]MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH-HAHAHAHAHAHAHA[/b] stone.

General Disclaimer: I am not offering advice in any manner or form, just really into fall right now.
