Americans may pay more for Halloween candy due to a sugar shortage.
The Wall Street Journal reports a sugar supply strain could lead to high candy costs, affecting production.
Candy producers blame the sugar shortage on a US agriculture policy requiring 85 percent of sugar from domestic sugar processors; however, farmers deny the policy caused shortages.
Experts say candy will be available for Halloween; however, the price may be higher than in previous years.
If candy prices soar, will you still give out candy this Halloween?
