Infographic: Halloween Candy

Infographic - Enjoy a new and informative infographic each SaturdayHappy Halloween! This week’s infographic is all about the Halloween candy. I actually fell, this year, into the 5% of people who did not buy candy. Two reasons, first we do not get trick-or-treaters any longer in our subdivision (I don’t know where they went) and secondly I did not want to be tempted to eat it. I’m sure Hubby would have preferred if I bought some for him to snack on, but if he really wants it he can buy it himself.

Did you buy Halloween candy? What do you hand out? How much do you think you eat on your own?

We’ll be giving out Pepperidge Farms Goldfish…we gave these out a few years ago too and the kids LOVED them!

Great idea! I don’t know anyone, kids or adults, who does not like Goldfish crackers!

so disappointed I only got like three packages of those. We got loads of mini pretzels though.

Pretzels are good too

We went to a Halloween party and brought candy corn cupcakes. I ate plenty of mini Reese’s peanut butter cups at the party, but at least we don’t have any leftovers in our home today!

peanut butter cups are Hubby and T’s favorite

Great infographic. We go trick or treating and then out to dinner every year so we are never home to hand out candy so I do not buy any. If I did I would end up eating it and I don’t need it. :)

We always ate dinner before going out trick-or-treating, never though about doing it in reverse

We didnt hand out candy as we never get trick or treaters and honestly we had went to a Halloween party thee night before.. I buy Halloween candy the day after when its all on sale.

Good money saving tip!

Those state facts are ridiculous. Can’t dress like a priest, can’t trick or treat if over 13, and California with you will be fined if you use silly string. I live in CA and did not know that…not that I have ever used silly string before.

12 Robyn Wright November 3, 2015 at 6:54 pm

I love silly string!

I’m surprised that Snickers is the second cheapest popular candy to buy, I always thought the fun size candy bars were the most expensive candy. Now I have another reason to buy Snickers (besides the fact that it’s my favorite candy bar).

14 Robyn Wright November 3, 2015 at 6:54 pm

I was surprised by that fact as well – good to know!

15 Wen Budro November 7, 2015 at 11:32 pm

That was interesting. That’s a lot of candy and that’s a lot of money spent on candy. I now know not to buy my candy at Walgreens.

16 Robyn Wright November 9, 2015 at 1:54 pm

Yep, only buy at Walgreens once it goes on clearance

17 Tiffany C November 9, 2015 at 8:34 am

wow I didn’t know these cool facts! Skittles is the cheapest candy?? Cool! No wonder I got loads of skittles, m&ms and snickers, not that I’m complaining, lol. I was surprised someone gave me a package of shortbread (walker’s brand) first time eating that and now I’m addicted. Thank you to mystery shortbread giver ;)

18 Robyn Wright November 9, 2015 at 1:54 pm

I’ll have to look for those cookies, Hubby is a big fan of shortbread cookies

The amount of sugar consumed and pounds of candy are insane. Love the statistics to put things in perspective though!

20 Natalie November 16, 2015 at 7:19 am

I had no idea that 95% will purchase candy! That is a lot of candy!

21 salexis November 18, 2015 at 3:55 pm

wow… When you look at it that way…. that sure is a LOT of sugar.!!!
