HERSHEY, Pa., Oct. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Say "trick or treat" this Halloween, and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups could appear. That's right, the Reese's brand is bringing trick or treating to fans with the Reese's Trick- or-Treat Door, a hands-free way to get treats this season.
In fact, 63% of adults believe that people will find creative, fun and safe ways to celebrate the Halloween season1. We couldn't agree more, and the Reese's brand is here to help make it happen!
Rain or shine, protective masks or monster masks, the Reese's Trick-or-Treat Door provides a robotic, social-distancing option that brings Reese's Peanut Butter Cups right to your doorstep this Halloween. Your only job? Say "trick or treat" after the Trick-or-Treat Door arrives at your doorstep and enjoy your Reese's treats!
"This Halloween is unlike any other, so we've upped the ante on creativity as a result," said Allen Dark, Reese's senior brand manager. "A robotic Reese's dispensing door is just what the world needs right now!"
This one-of-a-kind robotic door is designed to traverse through neighborhoods via remote control and bring candy to your doorstep. You'll know it's coming before it even arrives thanks to the smoke, lights and epic Halloween soundtrack that comes along with it. What can we say? We like to make an entrance.
When it rolls up to your door, simply say "trick or treat" and the Reese's Trick-or-Treat Door dispenses king size (yes, king size, because why not?) Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Here's how the one-and-only Reese's Trick-or-Treat Door works:
- Three motors power the door, directed by a remote control from up to 5,000 feet away – no humans nearby required!
- The 9' door features a built-in Bluetooth-enabled speaker that activates once "trick or treat" is said.
- A king size Reese's candy bar will appear through the mail slot from a retractable shelf.
