Here Are Some Great Halloween Fun Facts

Halloween Fun FactsSTOP ZOBIE MOUTH!

Would you believe that Halloween is a 6 Billion dollar business.  What account for cards, decorations, candy and costumes, it all adds up.  Also, the average American eats 24 pounds of candy a year.  That is a lot of sugar.

I guess it is a no brainer that chocolate is the most popular candy for adults but it is for children also.

The tradition of carving out large sized plants started in Ireland with rutabagas and turnips.

It is important to be safe and also eat your Halloween candy the correct way.  Let your kids have some candy but limited how often they get it.  If you munch a piece or two all day then the chances of getting a cavity are much higher than only eating it once a day.  Even if you eat more in your one sitting.

So dress up, have fun and be safe.  Brush well before you go to bed.

High Schoolers Know Their Candy Because Of Their Sweet Tooth

high school sweet toothA recent survey poller high school aged kids about their candy cravings.  They were asked several questions to see what kind of candy they liked and how effective the candy marketing is.  These candy questions included, what is our favorite candy?  How often do you eat candy?  Where do you usually buy candy?  What candy does this slogan represent?  Can you identify these candy bars whithout packaging?  Do you prefer chocolate or sweet candy?  How often do you purchase gum/mints?

I think that you will find the results interesting and you will be amazed at how the candy bar marketing has influenced you.  Review the study to see how you stack up to the teens.
