HOLY COW! These SCARY HALLOWEEN CANDY STATISTICS from LabDoor were an eye opener for me!

I mean, let’s be real. We all know all that Trick-or-Treating (and the loot-er-candy it begets, which in turn begets eating  said candy) can’t be healthy for you! Unless, of course, you count the fun had by all those little kids, dressing up and parading around the neighborhood getting FREE CANDY. That’s gotta be a positive influence on kids’ mental health….Right? Can we count that?

In terms of mental health, yes, I suppose we could count that as healthy. But in terms of what your kids are putting into their bodies? Uh – NO.

Here are the main takeaways, people:

•  86% of Americans buy candy during the Halloween season.
•  $4Billion is spent on candy.
• Eating one 47.9g pack of M&M’s is the sugar equivalent of 3 Krispy Kreme doughnuts!
