Too much candy?

Is there such a thing? Kids on Halloween night will say, “No way!” But, parents, you know how easy it is to end up buried in sugary treats. What can you do? Check out the national Halloween Candy Buy Back program: Enter your ZIP at to quickly find numerous Twin Cities dentists and orthodontists willing to pay $1 per pound of candy. (Email or call ahead just to confirm details for local events, typically held Nov. 1 or shortly after.) Collected candy goes to Operation Gratitude, an organization that creates care packages for troops in the U.S. military. Now that’s sweet!
