AFL-CIO offers list of union-approved Halloween candy
” Halloween is less than a week away and, just in time for Americans stocking up on candy, the AFL-CIO has identified the most union-friendly candy available.
Yes, there is such a thing as union-approved candy.
“If you want your Halloween to be all treats and no tricks, make sure all your candy is union-made, made in America,” Jackie Tortora writes at the AFL-CIO’s blog, linking to Local 144’s “Buy Union Directory.”
Tortora provides a list of union-approved candy highlights from the directory including Baby Ruths, Butterfingers, Caramellos, Hershey’s Candy Corn Kisses, Hershey’s Extra Dark Chocolate bars, Hershey’s Hugs, Hershey’s Kisses, Hershey’s Nuggets, Jelly Belly candies, Kit Kats, Laffy Taffy, Mike and Ikes, Rolos, Super Ropes, Tootsie Rolls and Trolli candies. “
And from the comments we get further elucidation on the acceptable list of crony confections .
” Brian K. Foughty, 2nd District V.P. for the Professional Fire Fighters of Oklahoma, provided this list of union-made candy for handing out on Halloween. Stick to this list of sugary confections and you can feel good about supporting America and unions across the country this Halloween.
