Reese’s making it possible to turn sketchy candy into peanut butter cups

Imagine a world where you could turn your candy corn, Good & Plenty and other sketchy Halloween candy into what you really want: more Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Well, that world exists — at least if you’re spending the holiday in New York.

Reese’s said it was putting up a candy converter vending machine in Washington Square Park (while supplies last, which might not be long).

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.

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

It determined that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are the most coveted snack-sized prizes of All Hallows’ Eve.

In fact, Reese’s dominated the rankings, with three more of its treats landing in the top 10: No. 2 Reese’s Miniatures, No. 6 Reese’s Pieces (apparently E.T. wasn’t asked, or they would have been higher) and No. 8 Reese’s Stuffed With Pieces.

What a time to be alive.
