Fans Shame Reese's Over Christmas Tree Peanut Butter Cups That Look Like 'Turds'


Reese's Peanut Butter Cups usually launches a festive variation of its chocolate to get consumers hyped for Christmas. The chocolate candy, a Christmas tree, has been met with less than satisfied reactions this year from Reese's lovers.

Apparently, fans of the peanut butter and chocolate snack are a tad disappointed that the holiday sweet kind of looks like a "turd."


Consumers have since posted photos of their misshapen Reese's Christmas Trees, letting the chocolate brand know how disappointed they were with the shape of the candy.

A spokesperson for the company told Fox News that the special edition chocolates weren't made from a traditional mold, which would give it a more symmetrical shape. Because if this, and the chocolate's higher peanut butter ratio, the Christmas trees end up with a less-than-distinct shape.

We have a feeling the brand might steer clear of Christmas trees next year.


Here are some of the results.
