Rejoice! Candy Corn is No Longer Idaho’s Favorite Halloween Candy
Sometime in the last 365 days, Idaho developed a finer taste for treats they hope to find in their (or their children's) trick-or-treat pails this year.
Halloween candy has been on shelves in the Treasure Valley since late August and you've probably been resisting the urge to buy the treats you're handing out at your home early. You know what will happen if you do. You'll probably munch through the entire bag yourself and end up back at Albertsons to buy more.
When you do eventually buy the treats for trick-or-treaters, how do you decide what you're going to hand out? Pick whichever candy is the cheapest? Pick the same candy your kids like? (Thank goodness my parents never did that. Our house would've been egged for sure. I was the weird kid that always hoped for Mounds of Almond Joy bars in my pillow case.) Pick your personal favorite?
Well, if you're hoping to pick up Idaho's favorite Halloween candy, Bid-On-Equipment says you should pick up Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. The company surveyed people living in residential neighborhoods across the nation as to what the most popular Halloween Candy was in their area and when the tally was complete, Reese's came out on top. We've clearly come a long way from vomit inducing Candy Corn being our favorite candy in 2018.
The survey asked it's respondents about some other Halloween hot topics and found out that parents prefer trick-or-treat hours to fall from 6-9 p.m. The average person will spend about $25.64 on Halloween candy in 2019, but parents will spend a little more ($35.01.) People also feel that kids need to hang up the trick-or-treat pails and pillowcases for good once they reach the age of 15.
