Wax Lips are Tops on Halloween Candy List

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 40 million children will venture out into the Autumn night and go trick-or-treating this year. The origin of Halloween goes back to when Celtic groups in areas now known as Ireland, Scotland and Wales celebrated their New Year's Day on November 1st, know then as “All Saints' Day”. The day before this celebration, October 31st, was called "All Hallows' Eve" and signaled the close of the harvest season.

October 30th, is National Candy Corn Day and Candy Corn is not just for Halloween anymore. Candy makers now produce Reindeer Corn for Christmas, Cupid Corn for Valentine’s Day and on Easter – plastic eggs full of Bunny Corn. As popular as this candy is (more than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be produced this year), it barely makes the top ten traditional Halloween candy favorites. Kids tell us that their favorite treats to receive when trick-or-treating are candy and gum. Eighty-four percent of kids said candy and gum are their favorites The Top Ten Traditional Halloween Candy includes:

1) Smarties 2) Nerds 3) Tootsie Rolls 4) Kit Kats 5) M & Ms 6) Reeses 7) Butterfingers 8) Twizzlers 9) Skittles 10) Candy Corn
