Halloween Candy Facts - Discover, a blog by World Market

We did a little digging to uncover five things you may not know about your favorite Halloween must-haves. What we found may surprise you! Get ready to have the smartest sweet tooth on the street with these tricky tales about Halloween candy.

Chocolate is the #1 Choice
According to the National Confectioner’s Associate, 72% of all Halloween candy sold is chocolate. Reese’s and M&Ms accounted for more than $500 million in sales in 2012. (Want to offer something out of the ordinary? Try our Milk Chocolate Eyeballs. Here’s looking at you!)

Get Corny!
National Candy Corn Day is October 30. More than 35 million pounds of candy corn is produced each year. Candy corn is certainly popular on its own, but it also makes great seasonal cake and cupcake toppers.

Safe to Snack
Despite concerns, there has never been one verifiable case of poisoning or injury from Halloween candies or treats. You should certainly check your kids’ candies to ensure that they are wrapped properly, but breathe easy knowing that the likelihood of your neighbors being Cruella de Ville is extremely unlikely.

The Least Favorite Halloween Treat Is…
Toothbrushes! It’s wonderful that the local dentist looks out for our kids’ biters during the holidays, but that’s so not what this celebration is about…

Peeps Makes Pumpkins
Peeps Marshmallow treats are known for being all about Easter, but their Pumpkins are our pick for Halloween! Orange marshmallow Peeps are dunked in chocolate for the ultimate Halloween confection.

We hope your Halloween is full of treats, not tricks! Stock up on your favorite flavors in our Halloween shop for a season of sweet (and not-so-scary) snacking.
