Halloween is a time for telling scary stories with the lights off, for braving haunted houses, and coming up with the greatest costume concept ever created. But nothing says Halloween quite like donning your epic costume and going trick-or-treating.
When you’re vegan, though, the treat often ends up being the trick—what with the multitude of potentially suspect animal-derived ingredients in most Halloween candy.
Then there’s the issue of what to wear? It’s happened to all of us—you know Halloween is coming and figure you have plenty of time.
