There's An Outrageous Piece Of Fake News About Reese's Peanut Butter Cups And I Will Not Stand For It

Everyone please calm down — the story is a hoax.

A story claiming that Reese's Peanut Butter Cups will be discontinued has unleashed a pandemic of chocolate-related freak-outs all over Facebook. The good news is it's a hoax — the world's greatest cup-based candy is not going anywhere.

Obviously, the hoax took off online because Reese's are fucking delicious and any attempt to discontinue them would be a goddamn global tragedy. This guy said he'd "personally lead the riots!!!"

This woman is a candy apocalypse prepper who hatched a plan to "go buy a stockpile and freeze them."

Some people completely lost it.

As people learned that the story was fake, they were understandably filled with righteous outrage.

Someone seriously posted a fake article that @ReesesPBCups were being discontinued next month. I will not stand for that type of nonsense.

Meanwhile, the Reese's Twitter account has been hard at work debunking the false story.

@ProfSquall Nope! Don't believe everything you read on the internet!
