Halloween has always been about food. And the unhealthier the better.
I always remember as a kid I’d scrape together a last-minute scary costume (because I was never really that interested in fancy dress) to walk around the estate with my friends, seeing how full I could get my Halloween-themed basket of choice. I’d then go back home and stuff as much of it into my gob as possible.
Now, I’m not condoning overeating, but this was the one night of the year when it was acceptable. And I loved it.
Whilst I have left trick or treating behind, I do still love the change in season that is associated with Halloween. And with Autumn comes pumpkin.
So when coming up with this vegan Halloween treat blog I wanted to make sure it covered all ages and tastes. There is no need for anyone to miss out when they are vegan, whether they are a kid or an adult. So expect vegan sweets and chocolates fit for any spooky ghost or witch, as well as vegan-friendly pumpkin-based foods that will amaze guests at any Halloween-themed dinner party.

Here are some frequently asked questions regarding vegan Halloween treats.
What do vegans eat at Halloween?
There is plenty for vegans to eat at Halloween. For instance, there are many vegan-friendly pumpkin-based dishes that can be made like pumpkin soup, pumpkin gnocchi, or pumpkin pie. For sweets, vegans can eat vegan chocolates like Doisy&Dam, or vegan sour sweets from Biona.
What Halloween sweets can vegans eat?
Many sweets aren’t vegan-friendly because they use gelatin (made from beef) or beeswax. But there are plenty of vegan sweet brands that use alternative ingredients to achieve the same result. For instance, you can try out Biona, Candy Kittens, Jealous Sweets, or Free From Fellows.
