How New Yorkers can trade unwanted Halloween candy for Reese's cups

How New Yorkers can trade unwanted Halloween candy for Reese's cups”

Reese's officials say the machine will exchange up to 10,000 cups for other candy for about five hours, or until supplies run out.

That's right, no more unloading your trick-or-treat rejects on your little brother. The vending machine will set up shop in New York City's Washington Square Park (at 5th Avenue between Washington Square North and East 8th Street) between 4 and 9 PM ET on Halloween.

The process is simple - place the unwanted candy in the machine, then out comes Reese's signature peanut-butter filled cups of chocolate like they're coming out of a vending machine. They captioned it, "Disappointment goes in, Reese's cups come out".

Swap out your unwanted candy for a Reese's with their candy converter. Yup, that's it, you give them inferior candy, they give you better ones.

Whether you hate tootsie rolls or licorice, the truth is we've all received Halloween candy we don't like. So this is sort of like those "take-a-penny-leave-a-penny" trays, only if when you put a penny in you get back a nickel.

If you're a Reese's lover and you happen to live in the area, get there sooner rather than later before the rest of NY snaps up the peanut butter cups for themselves.
