Colorado, along with Alabama, Michigan, Georgia and Ohio were the bottom five for spending money on Halloween candy. Ohio was the worst, spending $11.22 per person.
Nationwide, Americans spent an average of $16.45 per person on Halloween candy.
The study also found Oct. 30 is the worst day to save money on Halloween candy. The best day was Oct. 27.
