Happened to be in CVS (one that used to be an Eckerd) last night and they still had quite a few Christmas items to choose from at 90% off - lights, wrapping paper, bags, bows, cards, candy. Some lady was loading her cart down with candy canes. She looks up at me all wide-eyed and asks, "If these are regularly .99, how much would they be now?" I tell her they'll be .09 or .10 cents. "Thats's what I thought!", she says, and continues loading down her cart. So my question is, what do you do with 25 - 30 boxes of candy canes after Christmas? :holiday09

9 of them would be 10 cents, and 1 box would be 9 cents.

She could try to sell them on ebay.

The lady with the candy canes might belong to a group that has a party with Santa passing out Candy Canes. They would keep until next year as long as they are keep dry. But who know she may just be a CANE FREAK!!! LOL

I freeze the candy canes--We don't eat them. A couple of years ago, I decided that it was really wasteful to throw them out after Christmas, so I put them in a corn dog box and froze them for the next year. I threw away any that were broken, but those same canes are on their 4th year. We've lost a few of them due to breakage, but other than that, they look the same. It also helped that that year, we had a real tree that was HUGE and we bought a lot of candy canes (about 8 boxes) so this year, we had a little one and had about 40 candy canes left and it looked great.
