If your kiddos ended up with more candy than you want to see them goblin’, you might try talking them into selling some of it back.
Today, Thursday, November 1st, all three locations of Molen Orthodontics will be offering their annual candy buy back event from 2:30-6:30 PM. The pay out rate is 2.00 a pound (not too shabby)! Kids may bring a maximum of 10lbs. and they’ll also score an extra dollar for coming in costume and one more buck for donating two or more cans of food. Molen has locations in Sumner, Auburn, and Enumclaw
If there isn’t a Molen office near you, you can also try looking for a candy buy back site at HalloweenCandyBuyBack.com. I saw sites in Port Orchard, Kent,Renton, Des Moines and Federal Way. Do call before you head to one of these, as I haven’t verified the info. This site is a little confusing. The address you see is where they’ll be sending your kids’ loot (to the troops-cool!), but what You want to do is plug your zip into the box at the top right.
If you know of another candy buy back spot, or you have comments to share on the best way to deal with all the sweet stuff, do let us know! Honestly? My kids tend to come home and pig out for a couple days, and then it’s done. We do try to do some serious brushing!
What’s really spooky is thinking about how much money orthodontists must make. I’ve got two who are going to need braces……BOO!
New here? I write just about family events and activities for the South Puget Sound. I’d love to have you come back again. You can also use one of those cute ‘ola buttons in the top right to subscribe to my feed or reader or join us on the SFM Facebook page. It’s a great place to get quick ideas from parents near you!
