Did you get any Halloween candy that you hate? Maybe some Sugar Daddies, or a Mounds bar, or, God forbid, candy corn? Well, Reese’s has your back.
The famous candy company has built a machine that will take your unwanted Halloween candy and replace it with delicious, delicious Reese’s.
“No tricks here,” the company said on Twitter. “Trade in your Halloween candy for Reese’s candy. What’d you expect from the GOAT of Halloween?!”
The first “Reese’s Halloween Candy Converter Machine” was revealed in Tarrytown, New York on October 28 during a Halloween parade, according to CNN. A company spokeswoman told the news outlet that, according to a survey commissioned by Reese’s, 90% of Americans wish they could trade or have traded unwanted Halloween Candy.
“As the #1 Halloween candy (with over half of candy buyers purchasing Reese’s), Reese’s has come up with a solution – give us your unwanted candy, and we’ll give you what you actually want – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups,” said Anna Lingeris, spokeswoman for Reese’s distributor Hershey.
So where can the Peanut Butter Cup Lovers of America get their spoils? Only in New York. Ugh.
“This Wednesday at exactly 4 p.m., Reese’s candy converter – a huge orange machine you can’t miss – will be set up outside Washington Square Park on 5th Avenue in New York, and remain in place until 9 p.m,” CNN reported. “Reese’s is expected to give out up to 10,000 peanut butter cups, Lingeris said.”
No word on what will happen to the unwanted candy people drop off at the machine, but hopefully some of it – the candy corn – will be destroyed.
