First it was Starbuck’s Christmas cups that didn’t say Christmas. Now it is Reese’s Peanut Butter Christmas Trees that actually look like turds.
This isn’t news, folks.
But the Internet is burning up over the product that for years has been marketed as a chocolate-peanut butter Christmas tree. It has been around for almost 22 years but only now does the world noticed and, boy, is it pissed.
The outrage that only social media can generate is epic against Reese’s feeble Christmas-tree efforts.
Reese's trees do not look like trees and it's upsetting

They should just call Reese's Christmas trees, Reese's Vague Triangles.

These examples above are the tame ones. Most have taken to the hashtag #christmasturds.
Starbucks is happy to shift the spotlight. Hershey has been apologizing to complainers one by one via social media. But we doubt their trees will change next year.
