Here’s a deal for you, especially if you’re concerned about your little trick-or-treater’s candy consumption. Nestle and San Jose’s Tech Museum of Innovation are turning leftover Halloween candy into art. Starting this Friday, Oct. 30 (and running until Sunday, Nov. 8), The Tech Museum is offering a 10% discount on admission for kids who donate candy – it’s OK, it can be the icky kind, and the museum staff will even give them a little Nestle Crunch bar in exchange. Then renowned junkyard artist Leo Sewell will use the treats to build a rocket ship sculpture comprised entirely of candy. It’s a four day art project – Sewell starts building on Nov. 8 and the whole, fabulous thing will be unveiled Nov. 12.
