One of the most popular features every fall on Monroe on a Budget involves the discussions of the cost of Halloween candy.

candy bar labelBefore you buy any treats for Halloween, review this show and tell lesson I wrote in 2011: How much does it cost to host trick or treat? The Halloween candy project. That article explains how to determine the number of candy pieces in a package, both for planning purposes and for price comparisons.

When I researched that project, I selected candy from multiple locations, and different money-saving tricks. The goal was to let readers see how the cost worked out at a dollar store, a warehouse-style store, and two drugstores; and also how couponing helped on specific purchases.

Now that you understand candy price theory, here are actual prices I’m seeing on the shelves or in the sales fliers distributed via The Monroe Evening News, Detroit Free Press or in the mail in 48161 / 48162 zip code in fall 2012.

Heads up: Candy prices are noticeably higher for 2012. The candy bags that were selling pretty consistently at $2.50 in recent years are now closer to $3. The best price I’ve seen this year is $2 a bag, which is not showing up very often.

I’ll post an article soon that explains what I’m seeing on the price trends and how this will impact the candy budget this year. But based on what I’m seeing, I’m expecting to pay about $30 for the 300 pieces of funsize candy bars I need to get through trick-or-treat night.

Yes, there are candy coupons in circulation. The detail to remember is the savings per piece doesn’t work out to be much, given the quantity you need to purchase to meet the coupon requirements and the fact the values involved don’t usually double at the stores in Monroe. Couponers may want to leverage Register Rewards, Extra Care Bucks and Wellness+ rebate offers toward the cost of candy, than relying on basic couponing.

Mega bags also are worth considering for at least some of the inventory if your candy needs are 100 pieces or more.

All prices listed are for “out of pocket”. This reflects sale pricing and shopper card pricing at stores that require those cards for deals; but does not reflect manufacturer coupons, Extra Care Bucks, Register Rewards or Up Rewards. I’m also not listing promotions that are in the print ads as percent off or buy one get one unless I can see actual prices.

This list is in “price book” format, so you can determine whether a particular price is comparable to other stores, other brands, or whether it has changed from previous weeks.
