While we’re so excited to officially enter into the autumn season, we are fully aware of its implications when it comes to the health department. We’re about striving for progress (not perfection) when it comes to our health, and we want to continue to encourage you to live your best life and embrace everything that encompasses — even when it comes to indulging in your sweet tooth.
But we also know what it’s like to go on a candy bender in October just to feel sluggish, sick and entirely off balance the entire month. And unfortunately, much of these ill side effects are due to candy additives. Additives like high fructose corn syrup, food colorings and the use of excess seed oils have been linked to ADHD, obesity and diabetes in kids.
There’s no reason to spike the blood sugar levels, upset the stomach or ruin our teeth all month long when there are perfectly wholesome, clean candy alternatives readily available. Continue to prioritize yours and your family’s health without compromising on flavor with these Hive favorites. These sweets are an absolute must-add to your pantry this Halloween season.
