Honey Halloween Candy

Honey Halloween Candy - Hey Honey Beauty
written by: Payton Adams October 24, 2022

Every Halloween we have the same, unhealthy candy passed around. Well this year let's make that different! At Hey Honey we believe in the beneficial properties of honey for more than just skincare. Not only does honey help with sore throats, it's a great substitute for sugar. Although it is higher in fructose levels than sugar, it's low on the glycemic index making it a great alternative. We’ve searched around for some tasty honey treats that are a healthier substitute and easy to craft up for this Halloween!
