Well, it's about that time of year.

Have you loaded up your cupboards with candy for the trick-or-treaters?

The National Retail Federation tracks the sales of candy, and other products, each year.

So, what candy are we Alabama folks sucking, chewing and chomping on?

It's strange to me, because I love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. It is simply the finest candy ever made, in my opinion.

The peanut butter cup is the top selling candy all around us!

It is No. 1 in Florida, and top 3 in Georgia.

The National Retail Federation estimates that we Americans will blow $3.1 BILLION on candy in October!

In addition, according to candystore.com:

We will spend about $27.55 on average

Most Halloween shopping is done the first 2 weeks of October.

In Oregon, full-sized candy bars are the norm for trick-or-treaters to receive

Overall Halloween spending is expected to be $10.6B in 2022

Over 50% of parents stash some Halloween candy to enjoy later in the year

The dang Skittle is the top Halloween candy in the state of Alabama.

I don't know about you, but I can take 'em or leave 'em.

The smooth taste of that Reese's peanut butter inside that chocolate enrobed cup is the perfect sweet candy treat, in my humble opinion.

There's just no wrong way to eat a Reese's.
