Trade In Your Unwanted Halloween Candy For Reese's

So, you and the kids have amassed more candy than you need for a year. Now what? You rifle through it, and pick out the good stuff! What are you suppose to do with the discard pile? Throw it away? Bring it to work to pawn off on your coworkers? Let it sit for six months until you then finally decided to throw it away?

Here’s a much better solution (well, if you like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups), just bring it the the Reese’s vending machine and trade in your unwanted sweets for chocolaty and peanut buttery satisfaction! Cool concept (and marketing) by Reese’s.

Unfortunately, there is only one vending machine to do this at, and it’s located in New York City.

I guess you’re stuck with it after all. -GM


Reese’s did a survey and found that 90% of Americans wish they could trade out their unwanted candy for something better and that 4 out of 5 of those people picked Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups as the replacement of choice. And while those results sound a little dubious, who are we to argue with Reese’s making dreams a reality? We will gladly exchange our blue raspberry Jolly Ranchers and Good & Plenty for some peanut butter cups ASAP.

On Wednesday, you can take your unwanted and unloved candy to the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup ‘Candy Exchange Vending Machine’ in NYC and bing-bang-boom you got yourself a Reese’s kid. No catch. Reese’s will be giving away ten thousand Peanut Butter Cups this Halloween to anyone who ended up with candy they hated (which actually might go pretty fast so we recommend getting there early). What does Reese’s do with the candy? Good question, but it’s best not to ask — for your own protection.
