Everyone knows there are things online you can’t unsee and this post—about a man who received a pack of Reese’s peanut butter cups sans the peanut butter and was rewarded heftily—is one of them.
The stroke of good fortune happened to Reddit user alexbchillin. Well, he “be chillin'” alright—chillin’ with his mega stacks of free Reese’s cups after he posted a pic of the all-chocolate anomalies on Reddit and received a hand-written apology from Reese’s in the mail along with a treasure trove of treats.
Be prepared to drool (and remember once you’ve seen this, you’ll never be the same):

Peeps were envious, or is it jealous? What’s the difference between envy and jealousy again? WHO CARES! WE ALL JUST WANT TO BE REWARDED WITH BOXES OF REESE’S TOO!
@DarrinParray damn, why couldn’t that be me …

Starting immediately, I'm going to start praying I bite into an empty peanut butter cup.

Some were practically reduced to begging:
Need this in my life… @reeses please send me some?

There’s just something so sad about this:

No strings attached here…
Ohhhh… I'll continue to buy Reese's even if I don't run across an amazing discovery like this.

Good thing Reese’s made it right because as we all know it’s the “two great tastes that taste great together” that keep us coming back for more:
Next stop: 7-Eleven.
