Sometimes we get a little too much of the sweet stuff. Between Halloween and New Year’s Day, candy is everywhere. It’s at home, at work, and on store shelves. Then, as the year comes to an end, many people start thinking about eating right and losing weight. When those are your New Year’s resolutions, you have to do something about all the leftover candy so it’s not around come Jan. 1. Here are just a few ways you can get rid of your leftover candy ASAP. Donate it. While you may have an abundance of sweets, not everyone does. Consider donating wrapped and packaged candy to your local food bank or other nonprofits, including local homeless or women’s shelters. You can also look into donating candy to nearby schools. Many teachers will gladly take candy off your hands to reward students (or themselves) with treats throughout the rest of the school year. 3 WAYS TO USE LEFTOVER CANDY DURING THE OH-SO- SWEET HOLIDAY SEASON
Bake with it. Whether you have an excess of candy corn or candy bars, you can bake with your sweet leftovers. The next time you make chocolate chip cookies, swap out the chocolate chips for candy corn. Or the next time you make brownies, chop up leftover candy bars and add them to the batter. From peanut butter cups to mint patties, there are so many different types of candies that can take traditional baked goods to the next level. Store it. Although not great for you, candy is fine to eat in moderation. A good way to moderate your holiday treat intake is to store your leftover sweets in the freezer. That way, you can pull a little from your supply each month to make sure you aren’t overdoing it. That said, be sure to check the expiration dates on all candy you save.
“My shoulder has improved 100 percent. I have more mobility with less pain. I would highly recommend Kinetic over any other place. This clinic has much more individual attention and care. Chris did a great job.” –Ronald Mikos
“This is the fifth time I’ve been to Kinetic. Getting old is a bitch, but Auntie Em has helped me through it all. My last venture was a new shoulder. I thought I would never be able to lift my arm. I told Emilie to mark my words; I won’t be able to go all the way up, but I did it!
“Thanks Auntie Em, Kim (Peggy), Kevin (Mike), and Baby Amanda” –Theresa Martinez
