Cheapest Halloween candy by retailer

BusinessMin (per 100g)Average (per 100g)Max (per 100g)
Costco In-Store$0.81$1.09$1.31

Well.ca$1.95$2.01$2.07

Costco warehouses in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes offered a limited time sales on the Starburst & Skittles Fun Size 155 and Mars Assorted Chocolate Candy 50, making them the cheapest place to get Halloween candy during that pre-Halloween window.

Save On Foods and Walmart offered the next best average prices, with Walmart offering by far the best selection from the major candy brands. NoFrills and Canadian Tire offered mid-range prices, while outside of Prime Early Access Sale deals, Amazon and Well.ca were the most expensive.

Cheapest Halloween candy by type

TypeMin (per 100g)Average (per 100g)Max (per 100g)
Candy$0.81$1.49$2.08
Chips$1.16$1.53$1.87
Bars$0.90$1.54$2.01
Full Size Bars$1.31$2.20$2.84

Candy was slightly cheaper on average than chips and chocolate bars, while full size bars were actually the most expensive when bought in multi-packs. This is somewhat surprising given their bulkier nature (more grams of product) and less packaging required.

If you’re interested in buying full size chocolate bars to give out (which I was very excited to receive as a kid), consider checking if there are any sales on individually sold chocolate bars. For example, at the time of writing this, NoFrills had a sale which cut the price to $1.45 to $1.70 per 100g – similar to the cost of their Halloween products at the time.

On average, Mars’ candy and chocolate were the cheapest, followed by Maynard’s and Hershey’s. Nestle and Cadbury were the most expensive.
