Fill Them Up! Halloween Candy and More...

TJ

The stores are filling up with Halloween candy. Some well before Labor Day. Now that the season is in full swing, where are you buying your treats? Aldi offers a variety of options for your trick-or-treaters, but are they cheaper than other stores? I've calculated the unit price per piece of candy since the sizes and counts vary per package. Let's take a look at...

There were 14 different products listed as Halloween Candy in the Aldi Finds for the week of September 12. Two of those products are not individually wrapped for trick-or-treaters. Those are marked below. Notice that some of the candy is sold in 3 different sizes :

Miniatures: Minis are square bite sized version of your favorite full-size candy bars that are approximately 0.3 oz. each.

Fun Size: Larger than the minis. Fun size bars average 0.6 oz. each.

Snack Size: While some brands interchange fun and snack size. Some snack sizes can be a bit bigger than a fun size .

Update: More candy was added to the list for the week of September 26.

More Candy for the Week of September 26

SGD Tip:  Previous Halloweens, I purchased candy at CVS. If you have a well-stocked linen closet of toothpaste, deodorant, etc. and ExtraCare® Bucks to spend, use it on candy.
