And yet ANOTHER reason Reese's is so great...this Halloween there will be an actual Reese’s vending machine ready to dispense thousands of peanut butter cups to kids of all ages. And to get one, you just have to trade in the candy you don’t want to swap for a Reese’s cup.
Reese’s told Delish that according to a recent survey, “90% of Americans say that they have traded or wish they could have traded their unwanted candy on Halloween,” and that four of five would have wanted to trade that other candy for a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. So they made a vending machine that’ll do it for us.
Sadly, there’s only one and this amazing invention will be in New York City on Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on 5th Avenue between Washington Square North and East 8th Street. The machine will be exchanging up to 10,000 cups, but you’d better get there early, since everyone else knows this is the best Halloween candy, too.
And while we adore Reese’s for this peanut butter cup vending machine, the candy company recently announced something a little less popular with fans. This spring, Reese’s plans to release a new candy called Reese’s Thins, which will be about 40% thinner than the original. They think it’ll appeal to those who want something sweet with “more permissibility,” but most of us are gonna always be happy with big, fat, old-school peanut butter cups.
