...and donate your extra Halloween candy or candy leftovers to Operation Gratitude! Local dentists will take those extra calories, er, candies off your hands for $1 per pound and will send them to troops serving overseas. For information on a participating dentists in your area, check out http://www.halloweencandybuyback.com/index.html and also see Operation Gratitude on Facebook. Our local Noodles and Company stores are also offering a trade...have the kiddies turn in even one piece of candy for this great cause, and they will get a free kids meal on November 7th!
What a great way to support our troops and unload some of the hoards of candy that I KNOW are sitting around your place, just like the bowls and platters full of it that we have all over our kitchen! Sure, treat yourself to a piece or two of your faves...mine are red Twizzlers...and the rest that you and your kids are probably going to get really sick of? Send it to a soldier. No guilt or extra pounds to be gained with that!
