Cozi takes on Halloween

Do you love Halloween as much as I do? What about your little Goblins and Ghouls? With Halloween right around the corner, Cozi released it’s second-annual Sweet & Spooky Halloween Survey today!

Cozi’s Sweet & Spooky Survey Finds Mini Candy Bars Will Rule the Treat Bag

Cozi asked families about their Halloween plans, and their favorite tricks, treats and costumes. When it came down to it, I think a lot like a kid!  Mini candy bars were the favorite treat for the second year in a row, beating even full-size candy bars. Now, I love a full-size candy bar AND a mini-candy bar. The mini’s are also much kinder to my hips.

Do you take the DIY route for your Halloween costumes? Turns out 54% of parents do as well. I made a Carnac the Magnificent turban last year for my husband. It was pretty bad, but he was able to pull off the Johnny Carson pretty well! For those that don’t know who I’m talking about, here’s a video!

While we aren’t spending more on Halloween Candy (we get 3 Trick or Treaters, tops), it appears that 1 in 6 (17%) families will be spending more on Halloween this year than they did last year.

Top 2012 Kids Costumes:

1.     Superhero (Captain America was the favorite)

2.     Witch

3.     Princess

4.     Ninja

5.     Zombie

Cozi has also released an infographic with ways parents share keep the Halloween candy uneaten until Halloween. Unfortunately, that large box of peanut butter pumpkins I brought home from the Aiming Low Non-Conference fell prey to our grubby paws.
