Happy Halloween! Are you ready for a great list of vegan candy?! We even found candy with compostable packaging. These – and candy with plastic-free packaging – are located at the top of our list.
After you take a look and pick your favorite vegan candies, don’t forget to sign the petition below asking Ferrara Candy Company to package their mini box candy (i.e. nerds, lemon heads, etc.) in a box instead of a plastic bag. One of their vegan candy competitors is already doing this (see Junior Mint mini boxes packaged in a box instead of a plastic bag here). It appears Ferrara themselves even has Nerds candy mini boxes in a box (instead of a plastic bag) when purchased online (see boxed Nerds candies here).
We are asking Ferrara Candy Company to go plastic-free and provide this eco-friendly box option in the grocery store as well.

Loving Earth Chocolate
The items featured in the above photo – and many others at their website – currently (as of October 2023) have compostable packaging and are printed with vegetable ink. Not all items at Loving Earth Chocolates have compostable packaging. However, they make it simple to check, by providing a “packaging” link under each item on their website for info on how it’s packaged.
H!p Chocolate uses compostable packaging too!
