Halloween Candy: Trick Or Tweet?

For most kids, Halloween is a favorite holiday. But it’s not as much fun for children who can’t enjoy the same candy as everyone else. This Halloween, a new website is looking to change that. lets children and their parents make a custom trick-or-treating map of their area, showing the homes that will be giving out Halloween treats that they can enjoy. Homes and business that will be serving specialty candy can mark themselves on the map, indicating whether their treats will be suitable for vegan, nut-free, diabetic, organic, kosher, gluten-free, or raw diets.

‘€œThere’s no denying that Halloween is a blast’€, says creator Jon Zornow, ‘€œbut it’s a candy-centric holiday and it leaves a lot of kids feeling excluded.’€ Zornow, who is vegan, says he was inspired to create the site when he realized that if he had been vegan growing up, he would probably have hated Halloween ‘€“ and that vegan kids weren’t the only ones missing out., lets you find your neighborhood and search for homes by food specialty. It’s easy to use and user-friendly for trick-or-treaters of all ages and computer skills. Site visitors from over 20 states and Canada have posted what their location and the groups to whom they cater.
