The amount of sugar a human consumes


We still want the kids to have a great time dressing up and trick or treating, and yes, eat some candy. But even after they’ve had their fill and picked out some choice “keepers” they will still probably have about 10 pounds left, and nobody needs that much candy.
We host Cash 4 Candy every year for kids and their parents to enjoy Halloween without the overconsumption of sugar.



Global sugar consumption for kids increases by about 2% annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year, which means parents need to be more vigilant now than ever before. Too much candy can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain, as well as cavities or worse, broken teeth and damaged braces.  At this event Cash 4 Candy will buy back all of that excess candy from the local kids. Parents and their children come to exchange each pound of unopened candy for a dollar along with chances to win exciting raffle prizes.
