The Cheapest Halloween Candy

5. Twizzlers (mini bars)
Cost per trick-or-treater: 18 cents
How the calculations were done: Divided a $3.99 bag by 45 mini bars (14g each) per bag, which came out to 9 cents each. Because the bars are small, we decided it would make sense to give each trick-or-treater two to avoid a retaliatory egging of any house that only gave out one.

4. (Tie) Nestlé Crunch Bars (fun size)
Cost per trick-or-treater: 17 cents
How the calculations were done: Divided a $3.99 bag by 24 Crunch Bars (12.7g each) per bag.

4. (Tie) Twix (fun size)
Cost per trick-or-treater: 17 cents
How the calculations were done: Divided a $5.49 bag by 33 bars (10g each) per bag.

3. Tootsie Pops
Cost per trick-or-treater: 16 cents
How the calculations were done: Divided a $2.79 bag by 17 Tootsie Pops per bag.

2. Tootsie Roll Midgees
Cost per trick-or-treater: 15 cents
How the calculations were done: Divided a $2.79 bag by 54 Tootsie Rolls (about 6.7g each) per bag, which came out to be about 5 cents each. Because Tootsie Roll Midgees are so small, we decided it would make sense to give each trick-or-treater three, or again risk the wrath of the eggs.

1. (Tie) Milk Duds (mini boxes)
Cost per trick-or-treater: 14 cents
How the calculations were done: Divided a $2.99 bag by 21 mini boxes (12g each) per bag.

1. (Tie): Dum Dums
Cost per trick-or-treater: 14 cents
How the calculations were done: Divided a $3.39 bag by 48 Dum Dums per bag, which came out to be 7 cents. Because Dum Dums are small, we decided that it would be fair to give each trick-or-treater two.
