If you plan on sneaking a “few” pieces from the Halloween candy stash, you’re not alone.
The National Confectioners Association polled around 1,400 people and found that 72 percent of parents plan to “sample” their kids’ Halloween candy.
The survey also said:
1. 77 percent of of people buy candy for trick-or-treaters, and 85 percent of them go with snack-size, name-brand candy.
2. 68 percent of those surveyed say chocolate is the best. Candy corn came in second with 10 percent of the vote, followed by chewy or gummy candy with 7 percent.
3. 85 percent of parents will take steps to control their kids’ candy intake.
4. 37 percent of those people will set a candy limit for their kids each day. Another 26 percent say they’ll act as the gatekeeper, so their kids won’t even have direct access to their candy stash.
