It's been dark for over an hour now, and we just had our first trick or treat doorbell ring. I'm afraid we're going to wind up with nearly all of the three large bags of candy we bought at Walgreen's today. Perhaps we should have bought stuff neither of us likes, so we would be more likely to give it away at work tomorrow.

Would that count as promotional candy laundering? Can you guess what type of case my appellate brief involves? What would be the public policy arguments for and against white chocolate Reese's Cups?
UPDATE (11/1): I fretted just a wee bit too soon. The throngs arrived shortly after the above speculation, and we ended up handing out almost all the candy.
