We’re ready for October, the month for all things sweet like candy and you!
We’re sure you can find something to celebrate during this Halloween season. From the team at Harpers Handmade Co., here are a few more fun facts to help sweeten someone’s day.
‘Ick’ or Treat?
For our candy corn lovers, there is a whole day dedicated to enjoying each piece, on October 30th, National Candy Corn Day. Candy corn has been a Halloween tradition as far back as the 1880s. Today, Jelly Belly Candy Company produces over 35 million pounds of these corny confectionary treats each year. That number tells us that many candy corn lovers truly enjoy these little vanilla-marshmallowy-caramelly flavored treats. These corn-kernel-shaped treats are loved by many.
Chocolate enthusiasts, get ready to stock up for yourself and trick or treaters - Halloween is on this year! Are we surprised that chocolate takes the lead as the fan-favorite during the Halloween season? Chocolate is the winner for both kids and adults. Did you know that the average American eats 9.5 pounds of chocolate each year? The top-selling chocolate candy treat in America is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Second in the running is MM’s. There are so many different chocolate choices, which is your favorite?
Do you think Halloween is the only candy-driven holiday in the United States? Think again. Easter takes the lead with the amount of money spent buying candy.
If you’re planning on making candy purchases for your trick-or-treaters, you’ll be in good company and joined by 160 million people heading to stores to stock up two weeks before Halloween.
