Oct 30 : 01 day till Halloween

Did you know that October 30th (today!) is Candy Corn Day?

Candy corn is one of the most popular Halloween treats.

Did you know that more than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be manufactured this year?

That’s equal to some 9 billion pieces of corn, enough to circle the moon 21 times if laid out end-to-end.

BTW – one serving of candy corn contains 140 calories and no grams of fat

The holiday of Halloween dates back to the Dark Ages. Once truly spooky traditions have morphed over the years into much more light-hearted (but still mischievous) celebrations. Here is a fun look at some of the facts and folklore that describe how All Hallows Eve came to be celebrated as Halloween. Join us for a new Did You Know? each day as we count down to Halloween.

Halloween will be celebrated on Saturday October 31st.
