Did you know that according to the Huffington Post online Colorado searches the most out of any state for organic candy? It's not really all that surprising, but fun to know!

Whether or not your little trick-or-treaters gathered pillow cases full of organic candy or the old classics like Reese's, a ton of candy is a ton of candy. Why not let them go through their candy, keep whatever amount you think is appropriate then have them donate the rest! There is a great local option for rewarding your child for practicing some self control. Dentists in Boulder and Lafayette are offering a Cash 4 Candy party on Friday, November 4th from 3-6 pm! The deal is that you bring your extra candy and get paid $1 per pound! The candy is then shipped to the troops overseas. Why not make a dollar and show our troops how much we appreciate their service to our country? There will be door prizes and the school with the largest representation will receive a donation!
Check out their website and flyer for more information on the event!
Added bonus- you won't be tempted to eat the candy yourself!
