Trick or Treat

We all know that parents overlook their children's candy collection to make sure it is all safe, but don't forget the kids know you have alterior motives and you're really skimming through for your favorites to sneak while they go to bed!

Here are a couple fun facts you might not know about Halloween Candy...

1. Candy in Weight - every year nearly 600 million pounds of candy is purchased/year.

2. Candy Sales - 90 million pounds of chocolate candy is sold during Halloween week, taking a strong lead compared to other holidays. Almost 65 million pounds is sold during the week leading up to Easter and only 48 million pounds during Valentine's week.

3. On average, a child will collect between 3,500 and 7,000 candy calories on Halloween night. A one hundred pound child would have to walk for almost 44 hours or play full-court basketball for 14.5 hours to burn that off...

In other news regarding Halloween, maybe you dont have kids and would like to participate in the holiday. Come to the premiere of Swift NightMares at the Living Sky Casino, doors open at 7 on the 31st, film begins at 8 with door prizes afterwards. Tickets are just $10 and all money raised goes to the SPCA!  You can get more information by clicking the link below to their fb page.
