  1. 10 GMO Ingredients in Halloween Candy
  2. Sugar (GMO sugar beets)
  3. High fructose corn syrup (GMO corn)
  4. Corn starch (GMO corn)
  5. Soy lecithin (GMO soy)
  6. Soybean oil lecithin (GMO soy)
  7. Modified food starch (GMO corn)
  8. Cottonseed oil (GMO corn)

Not sure what to do with that stash of conventional candy that your little trick-or-treaters bring home? Consider trading candy for “pumpkin points” good toward a special gift or activity, or invite the Sugar Sprite to come. The Sugar Sprite (or “Switch Witch”) exchanges candy for a special gift.

Wishing you a safe and happy Halloween!
