Easter Candy Sales Expected To Get Sweeter

Americans Will Spend How Much on Easter Candy This Year?! Americans will spend $18.4 billion on Easter

"That should put shoppers in the frame of mind to splurge on spring apparel along with Easter decorations".

The National Retail Federation says Americans will spend more this Easter than ever before and candy is on top of the spending list.

"It's allowing consumers to enjoy a little bit warmer weather".

Plus, it's more than the NRF predicted shoppers would spend on Valentine's Day ($18.2 billion). That's up six percent over last year's record and a new all-time high.

Easter meals will lead the way in Silver State spending with an estimated $88.9 million, followed by clothing ($46.1 million), gifts ($45.0 million), candy ($39.5 million) and flowers ($19.1 million), according to RAN.

Richard Hayden, a teaching pastor at the church, told The Christian Post that between 2,000 and 2,500 people are expected to attend: "We will be dropping the same amount of eggs this year as previous years".

As Christians around the world celebrate Easter, there are believers who are targeted by terrorists for their faith during this holy season.

Overall, food will make up the biggest piece of the pie with a projected $5.8 billion in spending - and that's not including the expected $2.6 billion spent on candy. She says 87 percent of shoppers will spend a combined almost $6 billion on food. "I'm seeing more in the store here, than what they've had in the past", Sheryl Hendrickson said. "We're seeing lots of retailers with Easter gift departments online and in their stores".
