CandyNOMics - The Economics of Halloween, Visualized

Since Halloween is coming up soon, I thought I'd post this little infographic about how Americans spend their cash on Halloween. Personally, I'm surprised that Americans spend more on their costumes than candy, but perhaps 1) people don't make their costumes like we did when I was a kid and, nowadays, people only buy costumes, and/or 2) a relatively small number of people spend huge sums on their costumes, throwing the balance out of whack.

And people buy more candy corn than anything else? Seriously, folks, that stuff is gross - buy some decent chocolate instead.

Anyway, check it out and see what you think:
