The Internet Has Spoken: Pumpkin-Shaped Reese's Are Better Than The Original Cups

It's the egg debacle all over again!

We've heard some pretty bold claims from people who prefer Reese's Easter Eggs to regular Reese's cups. However, a new contender has entered the arena: Reese's pumpkins.

Things are getting pretty heated on the internet, so let's check out what all the fuss is about.

So, first of all:

These are Reese's pumpkins. They do not, in fact, have a charming Jack-O-Lantern face cut out of them, which I have always found to be disappointing. Don't like to me, Reese's!

Anyway, apparently people LOVE these things.

In fact, they like them better than they like the much-lauded eggs, AND the Christmas trees. As someone who always found the trees to be a bit much, I actually understand this stance perfectly.

Okay, so this info blew my mind.

Maybe it's because I'm in Canada — or maybe it's because I'm a deeply unobservant person — but I have never seen a white chocolate Reese's pumpkin before! Are they good?!

I legit went and looked them up.

Not only do they make white chocolate pumpkins, they make REESE'S PIECES PUMPKINS? You guys, this is really important information. I need to go hit up the grocery store after this.

The internet LOVES these things.

This viral tweet resonated with 28k+ people. So yeah, I'm guessing Reese's pumpkins hit a little bit different, huh?

I have a theory that it's about the filling to chocolate ratio, tbh.

That's a solid number.

The way I would absolutely watch someone eat 120 Reese's pumpkins...

I, too, fill the void in my soul with Reese's stuff, which is why I just had a bowl of Reese's cereal. No, I am not joking.

It's proven by science.

Lyz here says it's scientifically proven that the ratio of chocolate to peanut butter is the secret to the pumpkin's success, and who am I to doubt someone with a BA? Go off, queen.

It's the perfect ratio.

See, the cups simply have too much chocolate. We all know we're eating the Reese's for that sweet, sweet peanut butter filling. The chocolate is a BONUS, not a feature. You know?

Well, there we have it.

The internet has spoken, and it has declared Reese's pumpkins the true Reese's candy winner. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to get me some Reese's Pieces pumpkins. Keep it spooky!
