Now that we have some distance from trick or treating, many of us have a stash of unwanted candy. Whether it's nuts or nougat, (what is that anyway?), you probably have some candy to re-distribute!

Here are some suggestions:

  • Put it in the freezer and save it for decorating gingerbread houses during the holidays or winter vacation break
  • Save it for birthday party favor bags
  • Use it to fill a pinata
  • Take it to a nursing home, homeless shelter or teen center
  • satisfy a soldier's sweet tooth with Operation Gratitude
  • donate candy to Maine or New Hampshire Ronald McDonald House Charities
  • use it in an advent calendar
  • check out YouTube for science experiments using different candies
