Halloween is just around the corner!
It is the time for all kinds of sugary treats to come out and play. Do your teeth ache just thinking about it? I know mine do. We all love to celebrate this fun-filled holiday, but we also do not want to promote rampant tooth decay. Below are some alternatives for all that extra candy!
- Trade the candy - There are dentists and local businesses who will buyback extra Halloween candy. The exchanges can include cash, sugar-free products, toys, books, and other goodies depending on the organization. See “Halloween Candy BuyBack” (http://www.halloweencandybuyback.com/)
- Donate the sweets – There are many charities that are willing to take the extra Halloween candy to share them with people who are not able to participate in this fun celebration. It is a great way to help the less fortunate and even soldiers oversees.
- Repurpose with food – You can use and include the extra chocolate or candies in different delicious recipes such as crispy treats, bars, and yummy cookies!
