Hope everyone has a Safe and Happy Halloween!!
Facts About Halloween:
-Over 35 million pounds of candy corn will be made this year alone. This equals nearly 9 billion pieces. That is enough candy corn to circle the moon 4 times if laid end to end.
-Candy makes up only about 6% of the added sugar in the average Americans diet. Soft drinks and fruit juices account for almost 45% of total.
-Only about 5-7% of children do not go trick-or-treating each year.
-Chocolate is a better choice for your teeth than hard candy. It rinses more easily from the mouth by saliva, leaving it in contact with teeth for a shorter time. Chocolate also contains tannins. Tannins are known to inhibit the action of cavity-causing bacteria.
-American adults eat almost 65% of all candy produced every year.
-During the week beginning Halloween night, we will eat about five percent of the candy we will eat all year.
-About 30% of children sort their candy when they get home from Halloween trick-or-treating
