Where to save on Halloween candy this spooky season
Halloween is a chance to dress up like Batman, knock on strangers doors and request free treats … when else is this acceptable?
For those at thome, it might be daunting to fork out extra money on candy this week. This is made more concerning with the recent news that the cost of candy (in the US) has increased by 13% since September last year, due to the soaring price of refined sugar.
You can bet some local shops have also sweetened bottom lines with price hikes.
So, where can you save on Halloween candy?
Both Coles and Woolworths have dropped prices on a range of chocolates and lollies in the lead up to Halloween - in fact some classic chocolate and lolly share packs are reduced by 50%!
