So, your little ghost or goblin made quite a haul last night trick-or-treating. Now what do you do with all that candy?

If you're lucky, you have a local dentist like Dr. Chris Kammer of Middleton who says Halloween is like Christmas for some kids. But instead of getting a pile of presents, they get a mountain of candy. What other time, he asks, would we say "ok kids. Go at it".

So, Dr. Kammer is buying the candy back at a dollar a pound. A fun way to keep kids from obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.

He plans on sending the candy overseas to the troops in Iraq so they can have a small reminder of what's going on back home in the states.

Dr. Kammer says we all like a piece of candy now and then. So does he and that's fine. That's why toothbrushes and dental floss were invented.
