HEAVEN: Reese's Builds Machine To Fix All Your Halloween Candy Woes

01 November 2018

Anybody who brings their undesired trick-or-treat candy to the machine can trade it in for what was statistically proven to be the ultimate Halloween candy. Not every trick-or-treat outing can be a victor though, right? Out come Reese's cups!

According to a Hershey's spokesperson, Reese's is "the #1 Halloween candy (with over half of candy buyers purchasing Reese's)".

For those looking to visit the machine IRL on Wednesday, it'll be on 5th Avenue between Washington Square North and East 8th Street from 4 p.m.to 9 p.m., ET.

But this year, instead of trying to barter an exchange or fight over the good stuff, you can simply swap it out with Reese's Candy Exchange Vending Machine.

That's right, the number crunchers at FiveThirtyEight, a website best known for its political polling coverage, produced The Ultimate Halloween Candy Power Ranking. 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.

The machine itself seems to work automatically, with two slots: one for dumping your disappointing candy and another for receiving your peanut butter cups, for which the machine has a capacity of 10,000.
