72% of Parents Will Dip Into Their Kids’ Candy Stash, Plus Three More Halloween Candy Stats

72% of parents plan to dip into their kids’ Halloween candy this year.  And chocolate candy is our favorite by far with 68% of the vote.  Candy Corn is next with 10% of the vote, followed by chewy or gummy candy with 7%.



FULL STORY:  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 . . .



1.  77% of us will buy candy for trick-or-treaters, and 85% of those people will go with snack-size, name-brand candy.



2.  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%.



3.  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.
