If you’re not planning to sneak most of your kiddos’ candy for yourself, you might want to consider a candy buy back! Is this new to you? Basically, the idea is that area dentists will give your kids cold, hard cash in exchange for their candy! Now that’s a Sweet deal! All of these providers are donating the candy-the majority to our troops through Operation Gratitude. I sure hope someone is sending our troops some new toothbrushes, tooth paste and floss!
Here are candy buyback options this year in Burien, Auburn, Covington, Sumner, Enumclaw, Puyallup, Bremerton, and Port Orchard, plus a link to find more options near you!
Stop by any of the Molen locations with your wrapped trick-or-treating candy. In exchange, you’ll get paid $2 per pound up to 10 pounds!

These dentists have previously sponsored candy buy back, but did not have updated information for 2015. If you’re a patient there or live nearby, it might be worth giving them a call to see if they are participating.
