Happy Halloween from DMI Studios!

Here at DMI Studios, we're all partial to treats over tricks.  So to celebrate, instead of our regularly scheduled blog post, here are a few fun Halloween facts:

  • Halloween is second only to Christmas for holiday online sales.
  • Chocolate makes up about three-quarters of a trick-or-treater’s loot, according to the National Confectioners Association.
  • Candy corn has been made with the same recipe by the Jelly Belly Candy Company since around 1900.  What's in that recipe, exactly? Sugar, corn syrup, and marshmallow.
  • 90% of parents admit to sneaking candy from their kids hauls. (That number sounds low!)
  • Halloween is thought to have originated around 4000 B.C., which means Halloween has been around for over 6,000 years.
  • The first known mention of trick-or-treating in print in North America occurred in 1927 in Blackie, Alberta, Canada
So, now that you've sated your need for useless trivia, go get your sugar groove on!  Happy Halloween!
