I wonder if all the Halloween candy that doesn’t get sold goes on sale or half price like it does in the US.
In El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras that would bring the prices down to what we normally pay in the states. In fact, a huge disappoint for me has been the lack of local brands. It is amazing to me that the cacao grows in these places but there is pretty much no candy bar manufacturing. Instead, the stores sell Hershey’s and Cadbury. In Guatemala there is a local brand, a candy bar the size and shape of the Hershey Bar, but it was more expensive than the Hershey Bar. Go figure.
Well, I don’t know if they sell Halloween candy in Honduras and Guatemala, and I won’t be there to see what happens to the candy on the large Halloween displays that were up in San Salvador in late September — but I will be checking the supermarket here in San Jose, CR to see what happens to the displays I saw yesterday.
Now, there must be those of you thinking something like: huh, they celebrate Halloween over there? I am with you on that surprise.
