This happens to us... we get so much trick-or-treating and it seems a shame to have it go to waste because you either don't want your kids eating that much candy or can't eat it without storing it for months. From November 1 through November 3, you can take advantage of Kool Smiles' awesome program, Operation Troop Treats. And you don't even have to be a patient of their dental office to participate.
For every 25 unopened, original packaged pieces of candy your child brings in, your child will receive a toy (limit 3 toys). This candy will go to the troops -- it's win/win!
There are 132 Kool Smiles in the US and all are participating. Find a location near you here.
Please share this info with friends and neighbors! What a great way to eliminate candy you don't want to keep around, but don't want to go to waste.
