Area Dentists Buy Back Halloween Candy for Troops

If you have leftover sweets after Halloween, some local dentists will buy it back for a great cause.

Not sure what to do with all that leftover candy from Halloween? How about giving it back for a great cause?

Some local dentists are participating in a "Halloween Candy Buyback" program by Operation Gratitude, a non-profit that sends care packages to overseas troops.

Many dentists pay $1 per pound of candy, up to five pounds, or give prizes away in exchange for the candy.

FYI, has anyone been to a sugar processing plant? Well let me tell you that possum and snake crawl in those sugar silo's and the processor's do not separate the animals from process to make granulated sugar so you are also eating dirty, nasty, wild animals along with your sugar or anything made with sugar? Also sugar is not good for you either, ask any Nutritionist? a 12 ounce can of Coke has 8 teaspoons of sugar in it.
