Americans spend a ton of money on Halloween candy each year. One study estimates Americans spend on average $76.05 per person on candy for the holiday.
Many people buy extra candy to ensure they do not run out. When the crowd of trick-or-treaters isn't as big as expected, there remains a bunch of leftover candy come November 1st.
If you find yourself with extra candy and you are looking for something to do with it, consider donating it to the troops through Operation Gratitude.
