    Help!....UPS just left and someone sent me 100 pounds of candy. If I give a pound to everyone in my apartment building I can unload it. Anyone else have any suggestions. (No I'm not going to eat it)

    A dentist who doesn't like you?

    See if the Sunday Breakfast mission can deal with it.

    That's an excellent idea. Hopefully they will come and pick it up. Thank you.

    Well you can't really get M&Ms in Tenerife and the postal service from there to here is pretty quick these days - hint hint

    Yeah, too bad Star Trek technology is science fiction. I'd take a pound off you right now. Crap you could sell that stuff maybe. Take it to your local dollar store and they'd probably give you $50.

    i would say donate it to a couple of homeless soup kitchen places...it might be nice for folks in that position to have a treat once in a while, and those will go a very long way

    or donate it to something for kids perhaps...

    OK, You must tell us more to the story. Who and why did someone send you 100 lbs of candy? Also, even though it is a huge gift. Keep some and take the rest to friends and neighbors...of course it is sealed right. I mean you don't have lose candy? I like the idea of a shelter...if they will take gifts such as this. I really want the story.

    Plain or peanut? If it's peanut, then send them to me as an early birthday present.

    Seriously, I'd go with the idea Flashy presented of donating it to a soup kitchen or homeless shelter.

    Problem solved... thanks for your suggestions everyone. My super's church is going to take it and give it away as part of their food drive. ( I don't consider candy food) I kept two pounds!

    Well I warned you it was not an interesting story, but I did a project for MARS Candy and they kept telling me I was too thin and should eat more candy. Someone said (I thought as a joke) we want to send you some candy...what is your address?
