Halloween Candy $$$$

On this day of trick or treating, David Hurand takes a look at the candy industry.

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.

Halloween Candy! It's big business.
