According to a survey conducted by the National Confectioners Association, 70% of Americans say that their favorite kind of Halloween candy is chocolate. I’m shocked! Why isn’t it 100%? I know when I was a kid, getting anything but chocolate was a complete waste of valuable pillow-case space.
But we all know that there are plenty of Halloween hum bugs who buy the cheapest candy they can get to give out at Halloween. We know that because the number one best-selling Halloween candy is Skittles. The number two and three candies are Reese’s peanut butter cups and M & Ms. Personally, I think anyone giving out anything but chocolate deserves a trick. Apologies to all of you Skittle fans out there.
Americans buy 90 million pounds of chocolate during the Halloween season making it the number one chocolate season of the year, even more than Valentine’s Day.
Chocolate’s neat! Can’t be beat! It’s all I want for Trick or Treat!
