Trick or treating is a staple of Halloween, and we thought we'd embrace the more popular piece of that puzzle - the treats. So this episode of InTek Freight & Logistics: The Podcast welcomes Carly Schildhaus, Director of Public Affairs and Communications with the National Confectioners Association to talk candy and chocolate in honor of the October holiday.
Carly shares the top three Halloween candy types according to polling, as well as a couple of tips for parents interested in skimming a little off the top of their kids' sweet haul. She also shares how sugar supply chain shortages are affecting Halloween treat supplies, and whether inflation is taking a bite out of wallets.
Plus, we go over how confections are transported, the need for temperature control and the rise of e-commerce for candy shopping. And you'll learn about a perhaps lesser-known excuse for candy consumption every summer.
