Halloween is supposed to be pretend frightening, but some ingredients found in sweets are too grisly even for Halloween and cause fear and suffering year-round.

Carmine is a red pigment from the crushed female cochineal insect, dairy ingredients come from intensively confined cows who lead desperately unhappy lives and gelatine is the boiled bones, tendons and ligaments of pigs and other animals. Ew!

Here are some ideas to ensure that your Halloween sweets are a treat for everyone, including insects, cows and pigs. Do check the ingredients, as they may differ regionally and can change.
