Is it too early to start talking about Halloween? Well, deal with it, because the first big Halloween survey of the year just landed.
The National Confectioners Association says 82% of people plan to celebrate Halloween in one way or another. 80% plan to trick-or-treat, or take their kids trick-or-treating. And 79% will buy candy in case trick-or-treaters show up at their door.
They also asked people about different types of Halloween candy. And most of us prefer chocolate over non-chocolate treats, but it’s close. 60% said chocolate, and 40% said non-chocolate.
If you break it down a little more, chocolate is our favorite type of candy, followed by gummy-style candy, and then candy corn is third.
The survey also looked at HOW people eat candy corn. 52% eat the whole piece at once, 31% bite off the narrow, white end first, and 17% start with the wider, yellow end.
