Reese’s Is Revolutionizing Halloween With Candy Exchange Vending MachineNovember 5, 2018
Say goodbye to unwanted Halloween candy! When the holiday rolls around on Wednesday, October 31, Reese’s will be armed with a candy converter, which is a vending machine that will take unloved treats and exchange them for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
According to a recent survey commissioned by the candy company and shared with Us Weekly, “90 percent of Americans say that they have traded or wish they could have traded their unwanted candy on Halloween.” What’s more? The survey of more than 1,200 adults across the country found that “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.”
The machine, which is the first of its kind, made its debut on Saturday, October 27, at the annual Tarrytown Halloween Parade, which was held in the New York town where the legend of Sleepy Hollow began. On Halloween, the candy converter will make its way to NYC, where it will be stationed on 5th Avenue between Washington Square North and East 8th Street. It will be accepting candy swaps between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. local time.
However, if this piques your interest, you better act quickly come Halloween night. Per Delish, the vending machine can only exchange up to “10,000 cups,” meaning interested parties should seek out the candy exchange sooner rather than later.
Other treats to look out for this Halloween include Oreo’s new candy bar and It’Sugar’s Stranger Things candy collection.
