My daughters and I have a unique Halloween tradition that we’ve been doing for years. (At least I think it’s unique but who knows!) Every year we get home from trick or treating and the girls separate their candy. All Snickers go in one pile, all Twix in another pile, and so on. Then I sit at our computer with a spreadsheet open saying “ok, what’s next?” The girls then name the next candy they want to report on and let me know how many of that type of candy they trick-or-treated. After we’ve gone through all of the candies I report back to them with the Top 5 or 10 most popular candies for the year. And if that wasn’t obsessive enough, we then look back and compare this year’s list to years past to see which candies have gained momentum and popularity and which have fallen.
These are our results from this year. I’ll count down the Top 25, letting you know what percentage of the overall haul each candy makes up. I’ll also give you the percent of growth or decline when compared to Halloween 2019. (2019 was the last I have saved in my phone. The others are on the hard drive on my home computer. LOL)
This article is dedicated to my daughters Lilly & Chloe. After YEARS of doing what we do, people are finally looking at our silly findings! Love you both more than all the 100 Grands in the world.
