    This Valley Dentist is Offering Cash For Your Kid’s Halloween Candy

    Candy… we all love it. Especially kids. The sugary treats have been a staple for Halloween festivities for years, but it’s always been in protest by dentist offices everywhere.

    This time, instead of just telling your kids to limit their Halloween candy, Islands Pediatric Dentistry wants to pay your kids for their candy.

    Islands is offering $1 for every pound of candy that your child brings in to their offices.

    Dr. Rez, Islands Pediatric Dentistry

    Dr. Rez, who is a board-certified dentist and the owner of Islands Pediatric Dentistry, says that the increase in youth dental problems have been shocking…

    Today, it is estimated that 50% of all U.S children have a cavity before they turn 6, and tooth decay is the number 1 reason why kids nationwide miss school.

    The promotion will last the 2 days after Halloween, and all the candy bought back will be sent to troops overseas.

    The offices are located on Elliot and McQueen Roads in Gilbert.

    Pasta for You, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

    If youre not sure which one is right for you, keep scrolling to discover your perfect noodle, based on your zodiac sign.

    Aries (March 21 – April 19): Orecchiette

    Bold orecchiette pasta is the perfect match for daring and energetic Ariens. This pasta with a unique, flattened shape goes with pretty much anything. Its open-minded and risk-taking, determined to make any combination taste amazing. Sounds just like Aries.

    Fresh italian pasta orecchiette made from whole wheat flour

    Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Stelline

    The lovely little stars of stelline pasta are just the thing for reliable and appearance-conscious Taureans. Star-shaped pasta with tiny holes in the centers are a bit flashy when you look up-close, but the appearance is more subtle when you look at the bigger picture. You can always depend on stelline to add a bit of fun to your favorite soup.

    Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Elbow Macaroni

    Elbow macaroni is a friendly, welcoming pasta, much like Geminis themselves. Its unpretentious and inviting, never pretending to be something its not, and always embracing others for who they truly are. A Gemini is always a people person, and this is a pasta for the people.

    Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Spätzle

    Späztle is the ultimate comfort food, making it just right for sensitive Cancerians. It quickly fills bellies and warms the soul, pairing best with indulgent sauces. If youre having a bad day, its like this pasta knows and wants to make everything all better. If Cancer is your sign, you have to give it a taste.

    Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Creste di Galli

    If pasta could be extra, itd be creste di galli. Thats why its the perfect dish for life-of-the-party Leos. This pasta is frilly and ornate, but with good reason. Each curve and wave holds on tightly to its sauce, giving each bite a burst of flavor. Leos wouldnt be as lovable as they are if they didnt like to show off, either.

    Dry uncooked creste di galli pasta

    Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Farfalle

    The classic bowtie-shaped farfalle pasta is just right for hard-working, perfectionist Virgos. Their shape is refined yet simple, making every farfalle dish look like a masterpiece. It always gets the job done, just like a Virgo.

    Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Fettuccine

    Fettuccine is the perfect compromise between a spaghetti noodle and a thicker, shaped pasta, making it perfect for peace-keeping Librans. Its a people-pleasing pasta with the ability to satisfy just about anyone, giving everyone the best of both worlds.

    Yellow Tagliatelle Fettuccine Pasta with flour and wheat

    Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Lasagna

    A lasagna is a layered and complex pasta, making it much like a mysterious Scorpio. Theres so much more to a lasagna than you can see on the surface, and all the good stuff is buried deep underneath. Youll find that the same is true of a Scorpio if you can manage to befriend one.

    Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Rotelle

    Rotelle is an adventurous pasta thats literally shaped like a wheel, making it an on-the-go dish. Adventurous Sagittarians can relate. Its a pasta that symbolizes movement, change and never standing still.

    Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Spaghetti

    Spaghetti is maybe the best known-pasta out there because its traditional and totally classic, much like a Capricorn. The sign prides itself on its reliability, as well as adaptability, and there are few noodles you can depend on more than this.

    Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Conchiglie

    Shell-shaped conchiglie pasta symbolizes the sea and the great outdoors, making it a great match for nature-loving Aquarians. Aquarius is the sign of the water bearer, and conchiglie pasta is famous for bearing tasty goodies that get trapped inside the noodles during the cooking process. Its one truly giving pasta.

    Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Alfabeto

    Letter-shaped alfabeto pasta is just right for creative and expressive Pisceans. These letters allow you to play with your food, turning your meal into a form of art. Just like you can speak volumes with the ingredients you combine to create a tasty meal, you can tell a story with the help of this cute pasta.
