Halloween Fun Facts

Copy/Image 1a

In 2017 the most popular Halloween candy were Reece's peanut butter cups!  Also popular were snickers, twix, kit kat, nerds, sour patch kids and skittles!

 

In 2014 alone, a whopping $2.8 billon dollars was spent on Halloween costumes alone.

 

35 million pounds of candy corn is produced each year, which was created back in 1898.

Halloween is the 2nd largest commercial holiday in America, only being topped by Christmas.

 

UNICEF's trick or treat program was founded in 1950 in Philadelphia.

 

The now popular "Trunk or Treat" started in 2000.  Families park in a common space such as a mall or church parking lot and hand out candy to those in attendance.  Some even go as far as elaborately decorating the trucks of their vehicles!
