- Halloween candy costs more this year — but most of us will likely pay up rather than go without our treats.
- Planned household spending for Halloween fell this year to $100.45 billion, compared to $102.74 billion in 2021, according to the National Retail Foundation’s Halloween Spending Survey. In 2019, the number was just $86.27 billion.
- Prices for most treats surged this season fairly in line with inflation for overall food, but Skittles and Starburst prices jumped way more — up 42% and 35% from last year, respectively — according to analysis from Datasembly.
