Sweet treats: 2015 Halloween candy trends and savings
Here’s a little secret for you, well-meaning adults. Halloween trick-or-treating is the one time of year when what’s healthy is not popular. So scratch raisins off the list, and steer clear of home-made goodies, as parents are often nervous of these.
So what tops the list for trick-or-treat candy in 2015? This year, the USA Today points to the following treats as being right at the top of your child’s favorites: Reese’s, M&M’s, Snicker’s, Hershey’s, Kit Kat, Twix, 3 Musketeers, Hershey’s Cookies ‘N’ Crème, Milky Way and Almond Joy.
The common factor? Chocolate? But fruity candies and gum, along with Skittles and Starburst, top the list in some parts of the country.
Regardless of whether you live in a neighborhood with 100 kid or 10 kids, you’ll want to save money on these Halloween treats. Luckily, you’ll find huge savings at all of your local favorites. Plus, when you shop through ShopAtHome.com, you’ll also earn Cash Back! What’s sweeter than that?
