Diabetes & Candy

halloween-candy-by-phanton-kittyHalloween is a fun tradition for many, but what to do with all that candy (diabetes or not)? Here are a few ideas:

  1. Send it to the troops overseas.
  2. Take it to work (or better yet send it to work with someone else) and put it out for others.
  3. Save it and eat one piece a day for a year.
  4. Use the non-chocolate options (Skittles are great – those little packs are the perfect amount!) for treating low blood glucose.
  5. Put it in a bag outside the front door. The Halloween Fairy might come, take it away, and leave a non-candy treat.
  6. Buy it back from your kid with cash (keep the value of each piece low; it adds up fast).

What else has anyone done to get rid of excess Halloween candy?
