It’s that time of year.  Time to collect buckets of candy to tempt both you and the kids for weeks to come.

There is another option for your kids’ big Halloween score.  Donate your candy.  Get paid for it.  And support our troops at the same time.

Halloween candy buybacks have grown in popularity over the years.  A couple of dentists in West Michigan are participating this year. has details:

The candy buybacks are promoted by Dr. Bryan Nylaan in Grand Rapids and Dr. Bruce Stewart in Comstock Park.

Nylaan’s office, 5011 Plainfield Ave. NE, will pay kids $1 per pound for their unopened candy from 3 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1. The children also will get goodie bags and toothbrushes.

In case kids are wondering if the dentist and hygienists eat all the candy, Nylaan’s staff is quick to point out that the candy goes to soldiers serving in the Middle East. UPS ships it at no charge to a California organization, Operation Gratitude, that sends it to soldiers.

The cash yield is even better at Stewart’s buy-back – he is paying $2 per pound, up to five pounds per child.

The candy collection will run Nov. 1-9 at his office at 769 York Creek Drive NW.

A great option to keep your kids’ sugarbuzzing to a minimum this fall.
