Halloween is fast-approaching, and every year begs the question of how much Halloween candy to buy.
Taryn Williford from Apartment Therapy might have a solution. She has created this handy formula to give you an estimate of how much candy you will need:
- (Kids in your neighbourhood / Servings in a bag of candy) x (Quality of decorations in your neighbourhood on a scale of 1 to 5 + Quality of weather on a scale of 1 to 5)
- Now divide that number by 2
At first glance, the formula may seem weird but it does make sense. It factors in the number of kids in the neighbourhood plus whether your neighbourhood really celebrates Halloween. Bad weather may deter some from going trick-or-treating, but if your area really likes Halloween, weather wouldn’t be a factor.
Hopefully this formula helps. Happy Halloween!
