Halloween may be the designated night for all things spooky, but genetically modified foods are scary all year round. For the little kiddos hitting up your door step on Halloween, opt for organic candies that, by law, are guaranteed to be free of genetically modified ingredients. When you're shopping for treats, look for the "USDA Certified Organic Label."
Here are 10 candies that are in the clear.
