    That Tainted Halloween Candy Myth Just Won’t Go Away (NYT) https://news.yahoo.com/tainted-halloween-candy-myth-just-183611455.html
    Consumers are expected to spend a record $10.14 billion on Halloween this year, according to the National Retail Federation. That’s up from $8.05 billion last year when the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention suggested most avoid trick-or-treating. https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/shopping/2021/09/22/halloween-costumes-2021-candy-decorations-spending-record/5816767001/
    According to the National Confectioners Association, a trade group for the U.S. sweets industry, sales of Halloween candy have already hit $324 million. That number is notable for two reasons: First, it’s up 48% from last year, when the nation was in the throes of COVID-19 lockdown. But it’s also up 60% from 2019, when trick-or-treaters weren’t curtailed by state-wide social distancing. https://candyusa.com/news/new-data-shows-2021-halloween-chocolate-and-candy-sales-are-up/
