“Scary” Amount of Candy to Be Eaten This Halloween

Halloween is here, and it’s estimated that about 4 percent of the candy consumed in the U.S is eaten on this day. Almost 100 percent of children will partake in a candy binge compared to 25 percent of adults, USA Today reported. Health experts reassure that it’s OK to eat a little chocolate here and there, but advise to throw out the rest of the candy in a week or two.
