Halloween is in a couple days. Can you believe it? I hope you haven’t been procrastinating and have a nice stash of candy to give out to the kiddos.
You wouldn’t procrastinate, would you? 😉
As you know, Halloween is probably the second most favorite holiday for kids. People shoving candy into your hands is a dream come true for most kids — for parents not so much. As parents, we worry about our children’s health and candy does not help that. The last thing my boys need to be doing is scarfing down tons of candy. It’s not good for them or for their teeth (that they have to be reminded to brush).
PRI Manuka Honey Snacks
However, what if there was a healthier treat you could hand out for Halloween? I’m so happy to introduce Manuka Honey by Pacific Resources International to you. Manuka Honey is the purest honey on the planet — produced from environmentally protected bees and flowers in New Zealand.

PRI makes all kinds of honey snacks with this amazing honey — candies, chocolates, and lollipops. You may be asking yourself why is this better than other treats? For starters, there are NO artificial flavors, colors, corn syrup, refined sugars or preservatives. That’s a pretty good start, huh? Then to top it off, honey offers many benefits of its own.
Raw honey is packed full of antioxidants, can help digestive issues, and are filled with phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are plant nutrients that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Manuka Honey is definitely a healthier alternative to sugar!
Less bad is good, right?
Plus during this time of year, it can’t hurt the kiddos to eat something that can help upper respiratory infections. You know those germs are just waiting to attack.
Here are a few PRI Manuka Honey snacks that will make the kids (and parents) smile.
Salted Manuka Honey Caramels
These all natural soft caramels are made with real butter and molasses, pure vanilla, and blended with genuine Manuka Honey and Organic Sea Salt. Finally, ingredients I can actually pronounce! They are a great spin on a classic treat — with all the benefits of Manuka Honey plus they are gluten-free. SO tasty too!
Manuka Honey Nuggets
These are healthy natural energy honey snacks — not that many kids need energy.
I say just keep these for yourself! Mommy needs energy 😉
Manuka Honey Nuggets are made with Manuka Honey 5+ and come in three fantastic flavors: Manuka Honey, Lemon & Honey, and Ginger. I am a huge fan of the traditional Manuka Honey flavor. A perfect morning pick-me-up or whenever (I’m always tired). Heck, it’s great to throw into my hot tea too!
Manuka Honey Dark Chocolates
Can you say yum? These bad boys are only made with three ingredients. Yes, you heard me — THREE! Just pure Manuka Honey, 99% Cocoa, and Peppermint make up this simple yet delicious treat. The filling is divine! They are also gluten free, dairy free, and kosher 🙂
Manuka Honey Sticks
Okay, I know this isn’t candy or even really a honey snack but I don’t think the kids would complain. They are still just as easy to take on the go and make a nice lunch box treat. It’ll give their immune system that extra boost to fight off those nasty school germs!
Children’s Strawberry & Manuka Honey Lollipops
I just have to mention these natural fruit flavor throat soothing lollipops too even though they don’t fall under honey snacks. However, they are great to give to kids that are showing any symptoms of a “bug”. Coughing, sneezing — you name it. They will soothe your child’s throat and help fight off infections!
There you have it — a super easy way to make Halloween a bit healthier. Come back Friday November 2nd to check out a yummy recipe featuring PRI Manuka Honey. It’s a perfect Fall treat I know you will love!! Plus you’ll have a chance to win your very own set of PRI Manuka Honey products 🙂
