    I have two nearly full boxes of full-size bags of M&M peanut candies and Reese's Peanut Butter cups (4-packs) left over from Hallowe'en. I can't let them stay here or I will eat it all myself. If I can't find anyone who wants them I will throw them in the garbage, which would be a huge waste if someone can use them.
