Palm Oil-Free Candy
You’ll find plenty of treats at Boo at the Zoo, but you won’t find any made with non-sustainable palm oil. Every kid wants yummy, sticky, sugary candy at Halloween, but not as much as orangutans, Asian elephants, and tigers want a healthy place to live and thrive. Find out more about palm oil and make good choices for your Halloween candy this year.
