Not only are parents candy snatchers, but 21% of adults said that they purposely stock up on more candy than they actually need for trick-or-treaters so that they can have a little extra for themselves.

In fact, 28% of parents said that they eat more candy on Halloween than their kids! I can’t believe that my parents had the audacity to use the “you’ll rot your teeth” argument when they were likely having more sweets than I was.
