Dentist trades cash for candy
Submitted By Candice Leano
Fremont dentist, Dr. Colin Yoshida, is sponsoring a 'Candy Buy-Back' event in his office after Halloween. As many of us know, there are many drawbacks to eating excess Halloween candy besides the fact that one does not know what is in the bag.
Dr. Yoshida stresses that all the sugar and food coloring in candy can be pretty scary. Not only can it make kids hyperactive, and cause tooth decay, but it can cause headaches, allergies and make kids more susceptible to illness and obesity.
Halloween is a fun event for both the young and old, and Halloween Trick-or-Treating can be a ghastly great time for all. Dr. Yoshida's 'Candy Buy-Back' event rewards children willing to part with his or her excess candy, turning trick-or-treating into a profitable, as well as fun, event.
Children can drop off their candy and get $1.00 per pound. Children under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult in order to exchange candies for cash. There is also a maximum candy limit of 20 pounds per child. For more information about this program, call Candice at (510) 745-1800.
