Leftover Halloween Candy: Don't Take It to the Office! Do This Instead...

So, Halloween is over and you don’t know what to do with that huge stash of candy lying around your house. Many people bring it to the office, which can be detrimental to more than just your co-workers’ waistlines. Indulging in too much sugar also decreases productivity. After that sugar rush, you come crashing down -- feeling more tired, hungry, irritable and less alert. 

A better idea? Donate leftover candy to organizations that distribute it to those in need, such as soldiers serving overseas. They get a sweet treat and you don’t get dirty looks from your co-workers! Here are some places to donate your Halloween candy:
