This Reese’s Vending Machine Might Be the Best Candy Trade-In Ever

By the end of the night, every candy bucket is sure to contain at least a handful of undesirable items. Now you can be spared the true Halloween horror of those nondescript hard candies that look like they’ve been living in your Great Aunt Gertrude’s candy dish for a decade thanks to this amazing Reese’s vending machine.

This ingenious device lets you trade in your unwanted Halloween candy for the good stuff: Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, of course. “According to a recent survey commissioned by Reese’s, 90 percent of Americans say that they have traded or wish they could have traded their unwanted candy on Halloween,” the company told Delish. “Not only that, but 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.”

If you happen to be in Manhattan, New York on Halloween Eve you can hit up this orange vending machine on 5th Avenue between Washington Square North and East 8th Street. From 4 p.m. and 9 p.m, the Candy Convertor will accept your discarded treats in exchange for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Of course, if you’re nowhere near New York you can still get rid of unwanted candy by donating it or trying any of these clever ideas.
