It’s a sign of the times that entrepreneurial trick-or-treaters know there’s a quick and easy way to turn all that candy into cash. They can sell it to the Halloween Candy Buyback program. Dental practices around the country purchase trick or treat candy. One practice in New Jersey plans to pay $1 per pound of candy that kids bring in after Halloween. The candy will be used in Operation Gratitude.  Care packages will be sent to U.S. military personnel.

The goal of the program is to get some of that excessive candy away from kids, In addition to thanking the military. Those running the program know troops can get cavities too. They’re also asking for donations of toothbrushes and toothpaste! Check to find out which local dentists are participating in the candy-buy-back offer. The care packages also contain toiletries, DVDs, CDs, video games, headsets, webcams, snack food and letters of thanks. The program Bought about 61 tons of candy last year.
