It's that time of year. Halloween has come and gone. You can sell your candy, get some money, and help out local troops at an upcoming candy buy back event.

What Is A Candy Buy Back?

A candy buy back event is one where you take the candy you got on Halloween, and sell it. It's that easy. usually these types of events are hosted by orthodontists or dentists.

Where Is The Amarillo Candy Buy Back?

There will be a candy buy back event this Friday (11/5) from 2:30 PM - 5 PM. It will be held at Amarillo Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics.

How Does It Work

Let's say your kid did extremely well on Halloween. Really cleaned out the neighborhood. They can take their excess candy to the buy back event, and sell it for $2 a pound, up to 3 pounds.

That puts a little cash in your kids pockets, and you don't have to find empty wrappers hidden in sock drawers.

What Happens To The Candy?

This is the best part. The candy that is collected at the event is going to be shipped overseas to local military men and women. Think of it as long distance trick-or-treating with our local heroes.

Surely That Can't Be All....

It's not. There's a lot planned for the event. Fun fact; this is their 13th annual buy back. They know how to throw a party.

The Amarillo Zoo will be on hand with some of their furry friends.There will also be first responders and their vehicles on hand to greet the kids.
