Reese's Candy Converter Machine Is The Best Thing To Happen to Halloween


For years, trick-or-treaters have been plagued with a problem that, honestly, should have been resolved long ago.

The problem of the unwanted candy.

You know exactly what I'm talking about, person who hands out strange mystery candies wrapped in strawberry-shaped foil.

It's not just the bad candy either.  Nobody wants black licorice or Werthers' Originals for Halloween, but even the popular candies have their enemies.  Not every kid loves chocolate.  Personally, I was never a Sweet Tarts or Smarties fan.

There's never been a proper solution to the unwanted candy problem.  You can trade with friends, take leftovers to school, leave some for your parents perhaps.  But, let's be honest, what happens to most of your unwanted candy? 

It either gets tossed in the trash, or it waits around idly until family comes over for Christmas and your Aunt Glenda with a sweet tooth reaches for that now-questionable sugar-coated castoff.

Thankfully, Reese's is here to save the day.

Introducing the Reese's Candy Converter Machine. Yes, it's real. And it's genius.

This is the best thing to ever happen to Halloween.

It's basically a currency converter, but instead of turning pesos into dollars you're turning your crappy candy into delicious Reese's Peanut Butter Cups...no questions asked.

Now, for the down side.

It's only in New York City.

Reese's is setting up the Candy Converter on Fifth Avenue for 5 hours on Halloween for kids to turn in their unwanted candy and exchange it for Peanut Butter Cups, and they'll shut it down after 10,000 cups are distributed.

But seriously, this is the greatest idea ever and if they can do it on Fifth Avenue in New York they could ABSOLUTELY do this on Broadway in Nashville. Come on, Reese's.  Come through in 2019.

All hail Reese's, the king of Halloween!
