Halloween is a time for scary costumes and delicious foods, but did you know that bats are involved in both sides of the celebrations? 

Bats help bring many of our everyday foods to the table including rice, coffee, numerous fruits and nuts, not to mention some of the most important of our Halloween treats: chocolate and tequila. Bats are our unseen gardeners, with many different foods around the world relying on these nocturnal creatures for pollination, seed dispersal and pest control. Check out below to see if your favorite food has a connection with bats!
