October 21/Los Angeles/PRWEB -- The majority of Americans will have a bowl of candy ready for trick-or-treaters this Halloween, but some of them will be stingy with what type of treats they dole out, according to a survey conducted by CreditDonkey.com, a credit card comparison and financial education website.

While those who celebrate Halloween (78.7% of respondents) always hope to receive their favorite chocolate bar or sticky treat, they are not always feeling that generous when it comes to which types of candy they give away.

“Just over 90% of Halloween participants in our survey plan to hand out more or at least the same amount of candy this year as they did last year,” said Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey.com. “But what they like to receive and what they like to give differs across the various candy brands.”

“Smart consumers try to be careful with how much candy they buy for trick-or-treaters and what type they buy. They don’t want to have a leftover bowl of their favorite candies sitting around the house the next day, tempting them,” Tran said. “For diet reasons, you may not want to buy your favorite candy as the kind you’ll give out. That being said, very few trick-or-treaters will be happy if you give them raisins.”
