Excessive Candy from Halloween Goes Overseas
Dentists are hoping to take over Halloween; at least the candy part. Parents who have determined their kids have acquired excessive Halloween candy now have a good source to give it to. Participating Dentists through a "Halloween Candy Buy Back" accept candy and pay a dollar a pound to send the candy to US military serving overseas. The benefit is two fold, helping lower the onset of cavities/obesity in children and providing soldiers with a simple pleasure.
