Halloween might look different this year, but there's one thing we're not willing to sacrifice because of the pandemic: Eating our body weight in fun-size candy.

But make no mistake: People are not buying all that candy to give it to kids.

Only about half of people this year say they plan to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters. Last year it was around two-thirds.

62% of people bought Halloween candy just to eat it themselves this year, up from 56% last year.

It’s a weird year for Halloween and trick-or-treating. Different areas are in different states of covid-19 cases either expanding or contracting.

The folks at CandyStore.com recommend you monitor your local situation and follow health guidelines if you plan to trick-or-treat. And wear an effective mask, not just a costume mask, please.

According to the National Retail Federation, trick-or-treaters are expected to be down 20% this year. That said, only 11% fewer people plan to hand out candy. I’m no math expert, but 11 is less than 20. So, there might be more candy per house to capture! Right?
