We all know it: Not all candy is created equal. Especially when it comes to trick-or-treating. A piece of Double Bubble gum . . . or worst of all, Milk Duds . . . just isn't the same as a mini-Snickers or a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.
But regardless of the quality of the candy, a new study found the average kid gets a LOT of it. The average kid gets 91 pieces of candy when they go trick-or-treating on Halloween.
About 24% get more than 100 pieces, 20% get less than 50 pieces, and 2% of kids get less than 20 pieces.
27% of parents say they always eat some of their child's trick-or-treating candy haul.
Candy makes up more than five out of every six things kids get while they trick-or-treat. The rest is made up of other snacks, little boxes of raisins, and small toys.
