Candy Buy Back
Posted by Lafe Chaffee on Oct 13 2022, 03:59 PM
It's almost Halloween, and you're in the middle of fun traditions: assembling costumes, buying candy, and watching scary movies. But you know something that's truly frightening? According to Business Insider
, Americans buy nearly 90 million pounds of chocolate during Halloween. That's a lot of sugar.
In moderation, candy isn't terrible, but when you eat it often, all that sugar is hard on your teeth. Dr. Chaffee explains like this: When you eat candy, the sugar bugs on your teeth eat the sugar, and then they poop on your teeth. That sugar bug poop causes decay. Gross, right?
We know you're already wondering what you're going to do with all that leftover candy after trick-or-treating. After you've snagged your favorites for your "parent tax," you don't want that candy sitting around, just asking to be eaten. We've got the perfect solution for you!
We will be hosting our Candy Buyback event on November 3 and 4. It's a great way to incentivize your children to give up their leftover candy. Let them enjoy what they want for a day or two, then bring the rest to our office. We will pay your child $1/pound for their candy, up to 5 pounds. Just bring your candy to our office at 1239 E. McKellips Rd, #107 in Mesa, AZ. We will be there between 1:30-4:30pm to give your child cash for their candy. Feel free to dress up in your costumes for extra fun!
