Lucky's Market collects 1,100 pounds of Halloween candy

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Candy...for fruit? Does that sound like a good trade-off?

Some customers of Lucky's Market thought it did. The store swapped unwanted Halloween candy, pound for pound, for fresh fruit, and collected more than 1,100 pounds of candy. 

The donated candy will go to local charities' stocking stuffer programs and troops overseas. Lucky's was aiming to fill three barrels with candy. After our story aired the store filled almost 10 barrels.

The candy exchange ended Tuesday.
