With Easter just around the corner, I have been counting a lot of candy in bags. Each year, one of my blogs sponsors Easter egg hunts around the county and each year I end up counting how many candy pieces are in the candy bags at Costco. I would assume they are the same from year to year, however, in all the years I’ve been counting candy, prices and amounts change every now and then so I always want to know how much I am donating to Easter egg hunts.
This year has been a whirlwind so unlike how I usually budget it out and look at different prices at different stores, I skipped all of that and went straight to Costco and grabbed a few bags off the shelves and threw them into my cart. When I say I’m going to have the candy there by a certain date and it’s suddenly that date, well, I don’t have many other options.
New this year to my candy collection is Hi-Chew. My kids love them (maybe because they are part Asian? … probably not.) so I figure more kids most love them as well. We bought the Hi-Chew bag on sale for $5.99. Normally the Hi-Chew bag costs $8.49 at the Costco that is local to me. It had 161 Hi-Chew candies in the bag.
Another bag of candy that I bought was the All Chocolate Bag with 150 pieces (although I didn’t count it. I just trusted them). It cost $16.79.
The last bag of candy that I bought at Costco was the Kirkland Mini Favorites. It cost $15.89 at Costco and I counted 247 pieces of candy.
