Bakeries Plan For Halloween Sales

Halloween candy sales are expected to reach $2.5 billion this year, according to the National Confectioners Association. Halloween celebrations, which begin the busiest sales quarter for bakeries too, reach far beyond young trick-or-treaters. Bakeries get their creative juices flowing and design products that appeal to all ages. Here are a few of our favorites.
