It’s that time of year again. You know—the one filled with pumpkins, ghosts, and Hillary and Donald costumes. At least this year.
Americans are expected to shell out for Halloween as usual, with the cost of candy, costumes, and decorations expected to total $6.9 billion as the average American spends $74. Halloween kicks off the nation’s end-of-year holiday spending spree (only 74 shopping days ‘til Christmas), so before you go trick-or-treating or pop in your favorite scary flick, check out how Americans rate their candy choices with this by-the-numbers look at Halloween sweets. See how your favorites (or least favorites) stack up.
While it’s not a great idea to give out or accept homemade treats from strangers (as the graphic below reminds us), make your own tasty popcorn for your friends and families’ Halloween get-togethers with one of our recent recipes.
