For the last 25 years, trick-or-treaters have had it pretty good. The price of candy increased by an average of only 2 percent a year during that period.
This year thanks to Bidenflation candy and chewing gum prices are up 13.1% — the biggest jump ever recorded.
This will be the first Halloween in a while where kids will be able to go out in person for treats. If someone doesn’t answer the door, maybe it’s because the trick of inflation has already been played on them.
