What Do I Do With All This CANDY???

Happy Halloween everyone!  I don’t know about you, but my kids have buckets full of candy.  Left to their own devices they would have a major tummy ache plus a few cavities by the end of the week.  Plus, let’s be real, I’ll eat all the Kit Kat bars.

So my question is:

What Do I Do With All This CANDY???

Halloween candy

Here is a creative solution – The Halloween Buy Back program.  Participating dentists will “buy back” unopened Halloween candy from kids in exchange for things like new toothbrushes and dental floss.  The candy is then donated to Operation Gratitude and turned into care packages for our soldiers.  Here is the link:  Operation Gratitude.

The website has a search engine so you can type in your zip code to find a participating dentist near you.  It’s a nice way to put a smile on everyone’s face.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

All right, ‘fess up:  What’s your favorite candy?  (I like Kit Kats and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.)

  1. Peanut butter cups are my favorite. To be honest I let the kid have some and throw the rest away. I have no problem “wasting” garbage. It’s not something anyone needs.
