Most parents want to make sure their kids don’t eat too much candy on Halloween. Apparently one way we prevent it is by eating a large portion of their candy ourselves.

The National Confectioners Association polled about 1,400 people, and found that 72% of parents plan to steal from their kids’ Halloween stash this year. Here are a few stats from the survey:

  1. 77% of us will buy candy for trick-or-treaters, and 85% of those people will go with snack-size, name-brand candy.
  2. Chocolate candy is our favorite type of Halloween candy by far, 68% said it’s the best. Somehow candy corn came in second with 10% of the vote, followed by chewy or gummy candy with 7%.
  3. 85% of parents will take steps to make sure their kids don’t overindulge. 37% of those people will set a candy limit for their kids each day. Another 26% say they’ll act as the gatekeeper, so their kids won’t even have direct access to their candy stash.
