If you've had your fill of the sugary stuff, you can donate your remaining candy.  To donate your candy to the troops, check out Operation Gratitude.  You can also search for a local dentist who is registered in the Halloween Candy Buy-Back Program.  Participaing dentists will buy back your candy at $1 per pound and ship it to the troops for you.
