Most parents are still feeling bad that their kids missed out on Halloween last year, so they plan to do whatever they can to make up for it this year.
A new One Poll survey on behalf of Hi-Chew finds:
- 72% of parents say they plan to go “all out” for Halloween this year to make up for last year.
- 40% plan to decorate their house more than previous years.
- 37% say their child will spend more time trick-or-treating.
- And when it comes to trick-or-treating, parents are going the extra mile to make sure their kids get the best experience possible.
- The average parent is willing to travel 4.3 miles to make sure their kids go trick-or-treating in a “prime candy” neighborhood.
- Two-thirds of parents plan to visit their friends’ and family’s neighborhood, with 54% saying it's because they feel their kids will get the best candy there.
- Other neighborhoods that give out the best candy include:
- Urban neighborhoods (49%)
- Apartment buildings (40%)
- Retirement communities (31%)
- Cul-de-sacs (27%)
As for all that candy:
- 81% of parents say their kids eat their entire candy haul within the first week.
- 25% say it will be gone by November 2nd.
- 42% say their kid doesn’t think they get enough candy.
- The average parent eats four to six pieces of their child’s candy before Halloween is over.
