Less-Tricky Treating

Have you ever wondered why some people develop allergies? It's a perplexing puzzle with various factors at play. Allergies occur when the immune system reacts to a harmless substance, mistaking it for a threat.

While the exact causes are still being unraveled, a combination of genetic and environmental factors is believed to contribute to allergy development. Genetic predisposition plays a role, as allergies tend to run in families. Additionally, exposure to certain allergens or irritants early in life, such as pollen, dust mites, or certain foods, can increase the risk of developing allergies

Halloween, a beloved holiday filled with costumes and treats, can be a daunting experience for children with food allergies. That's why we're proud to partner with Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) to make the Halloween season less scary for these kids.

By offering our Teal Pumpkin designs, we're symbolizing our commitment to providing non-food trinkets and treats that are safe for all. Through the sale of each Teal Pumpkin style, we're donating $5 to FARE, supporting their mission to raise awareness and educate about food allergies.


With an astounding 32 million Americans living with potentially life-threatening food allergies, and 1 in 13 children affected by food allergies, it's crucial to come together as a community and create a safer environment for everyone

Our founder, Fred, understands this firsthand as he and his two youngest children, Brooklyn and Stella, live with food allergies. By spreading awareness and providing non-food treats during Halloween, we can ensure that children with allergies can fully participate in the festivities and experience the joy of the season

FUN FACT! Did you know? A teal pumpkin on your doorstep signals that in addition to candy, you offer non-food trinkets and treats that are safe for all kids.

This Halloween, if you choose to give out non-food treats, here are some simple, low-cost ideas:

  • Glow Sticks
  • Pencils, pens, crayons or markers
  • Stickers 
  • Spider rings
  • Halloween erasers or pencil toppers
  • Bubbles 

These are just a few ideas that can bring smiles to children's faces while keeping them safe. By embracing the teal pumpkin symbol and supporting FARE's mission, we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by food allergies.
