With October 31st just around the corner, many North Americans are rushing to the stores to stock up on Halloween decorations, costumes, and of course, treats—which is just what the CandyNOMics infographic by CreditLoan.com is all about.

While I do love the creepy costumes and scary movies that come with Halloween, the candy is definitely my favorite part of the haunting holiday. Though I’m not surprised to see that Americans spend $1.9 billion annually on Halloween treats, I wouldn’t have guessed that candy corn is the top seller, as the infographic shows. Another surprise from the chart shows that chocolate treats almost double non-chocolate candy sales, meaning good things to come this year for Snickers and Kit Kat lovers!

After seeing the CandyNOMics infographic, I can’t wait to go out there and grab some goodies for myself! May this year’s trick-or-treating be a safe one for all, with plenty of full-sized candy bars to enjoy!
