The time-honored tradition of knocking on doors for candy provides more treats than tricks these days, and parents get just as much fun out of it as kids do. A 2018 survey of 2,000 American adults (1,000 parents and 1,000 non-parents) conducted by OnePoll suggested an astounding 86% of parents admitted to stealing candy from their children’s Halloween candy piles. Almost half were predicted to eat more candy than their children, and 73% of adults — either with or without children — said they purchase more candy this time of year for themselves.

Additionally, four in 10 adults enjoy Halloween more now than when they were a child. The reason: unlimited candy. Although unlimited candy sounds great, it’s probably not the most healthful decision.

Walnuts allow kids and their parents to eat Halloween treats with less guilt. Walnuts can be added to candy, bars and clusters, adding both indulgence and nutrition, including heart-healthy* fats such as omega-3s (2.5g per ounce). So, what’s on the roster for nut-containing Halloween treats this year? Here are some of our fang-tastic favorites:
