Halloween candy deals

The Cheapest Halloween Candy 

Halloween is just a week away and if you haven’t already purchased your Halloween candy to hand out to the ghosts and goblins that come to your house for trick or treating, there is still time to get some great deals!  There have been several promotions by retailers leading up to the big holiday, including 50% off Halloween candy at King Soopers just last weekend, but if you are a last minute shopper, there are still deals to be found at all the stores and you can see the sale prices below.

Most Halloween candy is difficult to compare simply because every retailer buys different package sizes and configurations with unique upc codes, so they are not always directly comparable.  We’ve provided a cost per oz below so you can see which candy bags are the cheapest per oz.

Here’s a round up of the deals in the ads starting 10/23 running through Halloween:
