Reese’s Candy Converter Machine Made Its Debut in Hudson Valley
As kids when we didn't get our favorite candy on Halloween, we would trade with our friends until we got what we were really looking for.
According to a recent survey "90% of Americans say that they have traded, or wish they could have traded, their unwanted candy on Halloween." Well if you're in the New York City area, you can trade the candy you don't want for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
The Reese's Halloween Candy Converter Machine debut this weekend in the Hudson Valley during a Halloween parade in Tarrytown.
The machine will take your unwanted candy in exchange for Reese's. Anna Lingeris, a spokeswoman for Reese's, told CNN "As the #1 Halloween candy, Reese's has come up with a solution -- give us your unwanted candy, and we'll give you what you actually want -- Reese's Peanut Butter Cups."
Unfortunately the Reese's Halloween Candy Converter Machine has left the Hudson Valley and moved further south. Starting at 4pm today (Wednesday, October 31) you'll be able to find the machine at Washington Square Park on 5th Avenue in New York City.
Lingeris says Reese's has been getting messages about when the machine will go nation wide she says "Maybe we will bring the Reese's Candy Exchange to other cities; stay tuned for Halloween 2019."
