Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -
Candy prices this year see their biggest hike in the last four years. 
Prices for candy are up 4.2% compared to this time last year. 
The jump in price is coming from a combination of things including the rising prices of: raw sugar, refined sugar beets and U.S. cocoa powder.
The average American household is expected to spend $18 just on Halloween candy this year.
