Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are causing a major stir on social media and it’s all because of the way it looks.

The seasonal Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, supposed to be shaped like a Christmas tree, doesn’t really look like one at all. The candy looks more like a triangular blob, and candy-lovers aren’t happy about it.

These complaints aren’t new though. The Christmas tree-shaped candy has looked like this since 2013.

Some Twitter users said the shape doesn’t matter — it’s all about the taste.

Companies are getting major backlash over their holiday-decorated products this year. Starbucks caused a social media frenzy when it released plain red holiday cups, much less decorated and “Christmas-friendly” compared to the ones from the previous years.
