WACO, Texas (KWTX) Kool Smiles Dentist has a pretty "sweet" deal for your kids.

Kids can trade in 25 pieces of candy for a toy.

The candy they trade in is then sent to deployed U.S. troops in a care package.

It's all part of the dentist's office annual Operation Troop Treats.

They've been holding it every year since 2012.

Kool Smiles says it's a “sweet” reminder of home in the form of care packages containing donated Halloween candy, dental kits, letters of appreciation, entertainment, and other comforts from home.

They say it also teaches the kids good dental health, and the importance of giving back to those who serve our country.

Multiple Central Texas locations are participating in Operation Troop Treats, including two Waco offices at 529 N. Valley Mills Drive and
1601 Walton Drive, and two Killeen offices at 2200 South W.S. Young Drive and 1100 Lowes Boulevarde.
