Q. Dear Umbra,

My kids were very efficient trick-or-treaters this year and each brought home a staggering 25 pounds of candy (that is not a typo). Our usual approach has been to let them eat some on Halloween and the day after, and then they get a ration of one a day until Thanksgiving after which the candy just disappears: A lot of it just ends up getting trashed. We can’t let our kids eat all of this crap and food banks won’t take it (I get it), so what should we do with it all?
