Local dentist buys-back Halloween Candy for the troops

"They often have excess that the parents are trying to get rid of because they don't want their child eating as much candy, " said Dr. Tom Sagera.

Based on a survey featuring over 2,000 Americans from halloweenexpress.com, the majority of states in the country don't like candy corn and licorice comes in second place as the least desired.

Kool Smiles' "Operation Troop Treats" is in full effect now through Saturday, November 4 in an effort for local children to give back to USA troops overseas.

A great use of that Halloween candy is to remind our troops that they're not forgotten! The goal of the buy-backs is to help avoid obesity, diabetes and tooth decay, while offering troops overseas some sweet treats from home.

Operation Gratitude started encouraging dental offices to collect Halloween candy to send to the troops in 2007.

18th Annual Halloween Candy Buy Back is being held again this year to support local charity.
