Wait — Halloween Candy Is Already on Sale?
It’s never too early to scare up some treats. Or is it?
The calendar may still say summer, but plenty of stores are already getting a jump on one of fall’s signature days by selling Halloween candy. And this is as good an excuse as any to report that Oreo-flavored M&Ms are here. That sure beats the pants off of cough drop-flavored Kit Kat.
Stores have reasons for putting candy on shelves, but the fact remains that we’re still knee deep in watermelon and lemonade season, so there are loads of folks in the Twittersphere scratching their heads.
What do you think? This is a topic that feels like recurs year after year. Is it too early for Halloween candy in stores or are people just getting their bite-sized Three Musketeers in a knot for no good reason?

There is #Halloween candy in the stores now. In August. Who in the hell has the willpower to buy it now and not eat it. Not me.
