Ok, so it's actually not the WORST thing that can happen to you. (There is a story today about a Colorado man bitten by a shark, a bear, and a rattlesnake...)
But when you want to enjoy the magical combination of chocolate and peanut butter that is a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and you discover there's ZERO peanut butter??? None. Just chocolate.
Alex posted it on Reddit under "mildly interesting" and discovered it was wildly interesting to everyone else.
.@reeses sent a man an excessive amount of free Peanut Butter Cups after he found one without any peanut butter inside — and it's every chocolate lover's dream https://t.co/Fbv9Gn4qcX pic.twitter.com/Y2AmgILt4b— INSIDER (@thisisinsider) April 18, 2018
The post went viral and Reese's responded by sending all kinds of Reese's... dark chocolate cups, regular cups, big cups, white chocolate cups and the king size Nutrageous bars.
The peanut butter cups came with a note:
“Sometimes we like to remind people that you need both chocolate and peanut butter, together to have the perfect candy. This was one of those times. And you were the unlucky person. Now that we made our pointe, here’s enough chocolate and peanut butter to make everything cool between us.”
Alex says, "Yes, Reese's, we're cool."

Because, after all, a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, as advertised, has to have both chocolate and peanut butter, right? Everyone knows that... they've advertised that message since we were kids, very effectively I might add.
And of course, after "researching" this... I'm craving one.
