Halloween is ghost, goblins, costumes, and cash.   Annual candy sales in the U.S. are in the billions. A Chicago based research firm that compiles candy sales data reports that Reese's , which is part of the Hershey Company,  is number one with annual sales of nearly $510 million, M & M's is next with annual sales of nearly $501 million , M & M's is one of the lines sold by Mars, and third in annual sales, Snickers witch is also manufactured by Mars.  David Hurand  has more on our appetite for candy.
