Is it ethical to return unopened bags of Halloween candy?

While it isn't unethical to return it, I would wonder about the policy of the store where it was purchased. Some stores consider halloween candy to be along the same lines as holiday decorations and don't give complete refunds if the holiday is over.

That said, if the bags are just generic candy without any sort of holiday packaging, then you could probably take them back.

Another alternative would be to donate them to a food bank and let them distribute the candy as treats to the children of their clients.
