Halloween may be for kids, but parents should take note about a new survey.

According to a report by Delta Dental, 80 percent of parents admit to eating the candy their children pick up while trick or treating.

For those parents who like to eat their children's candy, the survey says they should choose candy that melts and disappears quickly, like chocolate.

Parents should stay away from chewy candies, like candy corn and gummy bears because they stick to dental work and are loaded with sugar.
