There are options to sell back your excess Halloween candy

Candy is donated to service men and women

Halloween weekend has come to a close. If you’re among the many, your candy bowls are overflowing.

You don’t need to be tempted any longer because there are at least two candy buyback programs going on this year.

Some local dentists have your best teeth in mind and are taking your candy in exchange for some money.

Trick-or-treaters can bring up to 10 pounds of excess candy to Pewaukee Dental and receive $1 per pound.

Dr. Mike Schneidler and Dr. Alex Silvia are the creative minds behind this movement.

Not only will they give you cash but they also have goody bags filled with toothbrushes, stickers and free kids meals. They are also offering many raffle items to the adults and families.

“This year we are really trying to bring the reason why we combine efforts with Operation Gratitude and send the candy to our troops full circle, and we will have a few military personnel in office on November 1 for the buyback to relay to the kids what the care packages from home mean to them,” Dr. Schneidler said.

Dr. Schneidler said the troops will receive the candy and person hygiene items just in time for the holidays.

"Many of the children who have done this before simply love the gift of giving and decline the money," Dr. Scneidler said.

Another option for candy buyback is in Germantown at Dental Professionals/DP Kids.

They have a similar mission, trading candy for cash while being able to give to service men and women.

Dental Professionals will also give $1 per pound and other goodies.

They also encourage all to bring a “thank you” letter or fun picture to send to soldiers as well.

Pewaukee Dental’s candy buyback is from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 1.

Dental Professionals' will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 1.

The candy must be unopened.
