It’s almost time for the spookiest day of the year — when jack-o-lanterns are glowing, fake spiderwebs are considered acceptable home décor, and little kids don their best costumes for some delicious treats.

Now, while Skittles and M&Ms are all well and good, I must confess that, much to my siblings’ amusement, I often opted for the healthier options while trick-or-treating. So yes, I’ve chosen apple slices over a Milky Way before, and I’m not ashamed to admit it! What can I say? I just don’t have a big sweet tooth.

If you, too, want to switch things up this Halloween and hand out something other than candy, here are 20 options that your trick-or-treaters will still enjoy:
