Top zip codes in America for trick-or-treating, according to Instacart

Instacart has created something to pique your interest in spooky season: a list of the top spots to trick-or-treat in the United States.

“For the first time ever, we’re introducing a tool that lets you enter your zip code to discover your area’s ‘Scare Score.’ This score, determined by analyzing candy, costume, and decor purchases via Instacart, rates your community’s Halloween spirit — and shows the top candies in your zip code, so you know which treats your neighbors are most likely going to be handing out,” Laurentia Romaniuk, Instacart’s trends expert, said in a company blog post. 

“You can also use it to pinpoint the places in your city with the highest Scare Scores — aka the ultimate trick-or-treating destinations,” she continued, adding that with this unique metric, Instacart has also identified “Halloween’s Best Haunts” which is the top 10 zip codes boasting the highest Scare Scores.
