Realistically, however, after mom and dad have “candy taxed” their children’s collection, most children can’t or won’t be able to eat all of the candy they collected. Many other candies are disliked by children and end up in the trash. Is there a better place that this candy can go to? We go over some great places you can donate your excess candy.
