So what'cha got going on for Halloween? Are you a big consumer of candy around this time of year? It's pretty crazy how much candy people eat, and I'm sure your dentist is probably smiling right now. They want more $$$$$ right? LOL. EAT MORE, EAT MORE !!!!
About 4% of all candy consumed in this country occurs on Halloween, says Harry Balzer, the chief industry analyst for the NPD Group, which does market research on eating trends.
Almost every child in the USA will have candy on Halloween, and about half of the adults will eat some, he says. That compares to 24% of all adults and kids who have candy on a typical day, he says.
72% of all candy spending this Halloween will be on chocolate. Last year, more than $12.6 billion was spent on chocolate in the United States, 3.8% more than
the year before.
