Wondering What to Do with Extra Halloween Candy?

Posted:

If your child's sweet tooth is satisfied and you've got some extra candy leftover from your Halloween festivities, here's how you can part with it.

Nelson Family Dentistry in Bismarck is working with Operation Gratitude.

It's a Halloween candy buyback program.

Everyone is encouraged to bring in any extra candy you have to their office.

They'll weigh it and for every pound of candy you bring in, you'll receive a dollar in return.

All of the candy will then be sent to the troops overseas to remind them of a sweet treat from home.

"We're not trying to be the Halloween Scrooges. We want them to like pick what they like and pick their favorites and have their fair share but nobody needs four pounds of extra candy that lasts 'til Valentine's Day at their house. So the extra they have laying around, they can bring in and they can help donate and also make a little money in the process," say Dr. Kristin Schoch and Dr. Crystal Overby, Nelson Family Dentistry.

Nelson Family Dentistry will be collecting candy all through the month of November.

Their drop off times are listed on their Facebook page - Nelson Family Dentistry PC.
