Got Halloween Candy on the Menu?

Call it a candy hangover. A whole lot of us have leftover Halloween candy in our near future.

Forty-nine percent (49%) of American Adults, to be precise, say they are likely to be snacking on Halloween candy for the next several days, with 26% who say it is Very Likely. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just as many (49%) say it’s unlikely they’ll be eating trick-or-treats, but that includes only 17% who say it’s Not At All Likely.
