What Do These Reese’s Look Like To You?
Of course Halloween is just a couple of weeks away, and I’m a firm believer you don’t talk about holidays until a month out. I just couldn’t understand what Reese’s was doing here.
Reese’s came out with “mystery shapes” in the Christmas bag of candy. To me they look like chocolate blobs, I might be able to say one looks like a boot. Reese’s said they will tell us what each one means at a later date.
This is probably the best marketing strategy I have ever seen. People will continue to buy these, and guess what each shape will be. I am placing bets people will say one shape looks like Jesus. Happens with potato chips, why not candy?
Take a look for yourself, what do you think?

New Reese's Mystery Shapes will be out for the holiday season! These are the first new holiday shapes in 20 years. According to the info with the candy, Hershey's agrees with consumers that the Reese's Trees don't actually look like trees, so they "wanted to give you something new to talk about." I think the first and third Reese's shapes in the picture are rather obvious. I have no clue what that second shape is, though. A trapezoid? Whatever it is, it still tastes good! Huge thanks to Hershey's for sending the Reese's!
