Leftover Halloween Candy..

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions of what to do with the leftover Halloween candy? We went a little overboard this year and I don't want to have all this candy in my house.

Hope everyone had a great Halloween!

Last year my husbands office collected everyones leftover candy (and whatever they could pry away from the kids) and had it shipped across seas to the military. It was through operation gratitude:

I'm hoping they do it again this year.

One of the teachers in my dd's school is collecting stuff to send to her son's unit in Iraq. She said that she has sent chocolate and other candy and not had a problem with it melting. I personally think this is the best use for it because it gives the guys (and gals) a great reminder of home. The kids are also making cards to send with the candy.

You could give it to the food bank. They would probably be happy to have it. I usually take my extra to work and feed it to my coworkers.

If you have a kid's club like the Boys and Girls club you could donate it for their 'reward' cupboard. Many keep a cache of small toys, stuffed animals and such for the kids to chose stuff for their own good behavior, study habits, grades etc or as gifts for others.
