Most parents want to make sure their kids don’t eat TOO much candy on Halloween. And apparently one way we prevent it is by eating a large portion of their candy OURSELVES . . .
The National Confectioners Association polled about 1,400 people, and found that 72% of parents plan to STEAL from their kids’ Halloween stash this year. Here are three more stats from the survey . . .
- 77% of us will buy candy for trick-or-treaters, and 85% of those people will go with snack-size, name-brand candy.
- Chocolate candy is our favorite type of Halloween candy by far. 68% said it’s the best. Somehow CANDY CORN came in second with 10% of the vote, followed by chewy or gummy candy with 7%.
- 85% of parents will take steps to make sure their kids don’t overindulge. 37% of those people will set a candy limit for their kids each day. Another 26% say they’ll act as the gatekeeper, so their kids won’t even have direct access to their candy stash.
