Halloween is almost here. If you have kids, you've likely already started collecting candy from relatives, school, and trunk or treat events. By the time Halloween night rolls around, you will have so much candy you won't know what to do with it all. 

But somehow no matter how large the candy stash, we find a way to get rid of it. 

Parents definitely indulge in the kid's Halloween candy haul. There are even APPs created to help parents pair their favorite candy with wine! That's amazing! 

According to a recent study, 86% of parents have stolen Halloween candy from their kids. There was an entire study done on the candy eating habits of Americans on Halloween and the results are interesting. 

Getting dressed up and decorating for Halloween is something four in 10 adults say they enjoy now more than they did as children. While parents try to limit how much candy their kids will eat, they struggle with self-control too. In fact, the study found that 44% of parents will actually eat more Halloween candy than their kids.
