Social media is abuzz with horrified and disappointed consumers who purchased a holiday version of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups advertised as being shaped like Christmas trees, rather than the traditional disc.
But a tree shape is not what they found.
Instead, the peanut-butter-filled chocolates appear more like amorphous blobs, and Reese’s enthusiasts have taken note.
Even the white chocolate variety hasn’t been immune from the scathing reviews.
Hershey’s, Reese’s parent company, did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but Reese’s has been regularly responding to gripes about the shape, asking customers to submit their complaints via its online form.
But the complaints shouldn’t be any surprise to the company — people made similar observations in 2014.
And in 2013.
Hey, at least no one is complaining that the tree blobs are destroying Christmas.
