A study released Monday reveals 25 percent of U.S. residents plan on going trick-or-treating this year — regardless of whether it’s been called off due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, whether they end up with any candy is anyone’s guess. In a separate survey, only 35 percent of Americans said they plan on buying Halloween candy to hand out.
