You just can’t top peanut butter and chocolate — especially on Halloween — and thanks to Reese’s new candy converter, you’re guaranteed to score your favorite candy combo this year.
That’s right, no more unloading your trick-or-treat rejects on your little brother.
Don’t try to deny it: A survey commissioned by Reese’s found that 90 percent of Americans have traded — or wish they could trade — their unwanted candy on Halloween, Anna Lingeris, a spokeswoman for Reese’s distributor Hershey, tells CNN.
“As the No. 1 Halloween candy (with over half of candy buyers purchasing Reese’s), Reese’s has come up with a solution,” Lingeris said. “Give us your unwanted candy, and we’ll give you what you actually want — Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.”
The marketing geniuses behind the famed PB & C concoction first unveiled the massive orange vending machine at a Halloween party in Westchester, delighting baffled onlookers who deposited weak candy for the hard stuff in the little orange wrapping.
From 4 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, the Candy Exchange Vending Machine will service New Yorkers in Washington Square Park by exchanging 10,000 Reese’s.
But don’t despair if you’re outside the exchange territory: A Reese’s rep says, “Stay tuned for Halloween 2019.”
God bless Halloween — unless, of course, you have a peanut allergy.
