Consumers will spend an average of $27.33 on costumes for the whole family this year (I have no idea how you can outfit a family for $27); Pet lovers are expected to spend $350 million this year on costumes for their furry friends; Nine in 10 consumers also plan to be well-prepared with an estimated $2.1 billion or so going toward candy. Good for Hershey, (HSY) Tootsie Roll (TR) and Mondelez International (MDLZ). I wonder if you're shaking your head just like I am after reading all that. Now here's the bad news – per the NRF's findings, the average consumer will spend $74.34 on costumes, candy and decorations, down 4% from the $77.52 spent on average last year. Seems those lower gas prices are not translating into candy and costumes as much as some might have thought or hoped.
