The skyrocketing cost of sweet treats

As you went into the store to purchase your Halloween wares for this evening’s festivities, you might have had a little bit of sticker shock. 
Since 2010, the cost of those sweet treats has risen by 43% and the cost of baked goods has gone up by 41%.  Some corporations have claimed that sugar prices are too high or there are shortages that have resulted in an uptick in prices.  But that’s not the case.  In fact, those increases are nearly double the increase in the price of sugar over the same time period.
