Just For Fun (But Don’t Point Fingers)…
A recent survey by RetailMeNot, found that 72% of parents admitted to taking a piece of their child’s Halloween candy, and 35% of those parents say their kids don’t know they do this!
Parents don’t want just any candy, says the report:
- 41% of parents intentionally take their kids to wealthier areas to trick-or-treat
- 48% of younger parents (18-34 year-olds) admitted to doing this
And, costumes aren’t just for kids either!
- 54% of parents will dress in costume when taking kids trick-or-treating
- 23% of parents will even try to impress other parents with their costumes
75% of Americans plan to spend money on Halloween this year, and on average, they will spend $83 on the holiday in total.
