As a kid, I remember always being bummed that I didn't have a sibling my age to trade candy with on Halloween. What do you do when you have 500 Almond Joys to give away and no one to give you Twix bars in return?! I despised Milky Ways as a child (I know, I know -- I have since come to my senses), so my mom took those and I was left with a bunch of Tootsie Rolls and a few bite-sized Snickers. Fine, but not great.
Lucky for us, and kids I guess, but mostly adults, Reese's has unveiled a candy "vending machine" of sorts in New York that will allow you to trade all of your crappy candy for everyone's one true love: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
"According to a recent survey commissioned by Reese’s, 90 percent of Americans say that they have traded or wish they could have traded their unwanted candy on Halloween," the company told Delish. "Not only that, but four out of five Americans either have traded or would like to trade candy they didn’t like for a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup."
Is this the best thing you've ever heard? Because honestly, same. The vending machine made its debut over the weekend at the Tarrytown Annual Halloween Parade in Tarrytown, N.Y., and will now head to its new home in Lower Manhattan to prepare for Halloween night.
The machine will be stationed on 5th Avenue between Washington Square North and East 8th Street between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Oct. 31, but get there early -- Reese's will only be exchanging up to 10,000 cups.
Not a fan of peanut butter cups? Go home, you're drunk.
