When Reese’s rolled out its peanut butter Christmas tree candy this season, people were outraged — outraged! — to discover that underneath that merry wrapping the candy was nothing but a chocolate sham.
Christmas tree-shaped candy? Yeah, right. Take a look at this cruel joke of a holiday treat — but only if you can handle witnessing the spirit of Christmas being slain right before your innocent eyes.

You know what this candy looks like? I’ll tell you what it looks like.
The new Reese's Christmas tree looks more like a turd. Perhaps they should call it Reese's Feces.

Yeah, OK, I guess that was kind of predictable.

Really cannot overemphasize the crater of disappointment this left in people’s lives.
Honestly, if I could have but one Christmas wish this year, it would be that everyone’s lives could be so carefree and #blessed that this misshapen candy really is the worst thing you have to deal with.
But you know who laughed the most at this non-controversy? Reese’s did. Not only did they have the most hilariously mike-dropping response, but they also reminded us of what’s most important in life.

Love. Compassion. Acceptance.
REESE'S celebrates trees of all shapes and sizes. It's not what it looks like, it's what it tastes like. pic.twitter.com/8KURar00UX

And deliciousness. Remember, folks — it’s just chocolate, and it’s what’s on the inside that matters most. So put that lumpy Reese’s tree candy thing in your mouth, and let the sugar buzz knock some sense into you. Mmm, tastes like every holiday.
