Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are a milk chocolate cup made of chocolate-coated peanut butter, and these are some of the most popular chocolate brands and snacks loved by children across the world. This was originally created by HB Reese (Founder of The Harry Burnett Reese Candy Co.) in 1928.


Reese was encouraged by Hershey and started his own business. Reese’s other products include 100 Calorie Peanut Butter Wafer Bar, Chips Ahoy With Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Reese's Bar - a chocolate bar with chocolate squares with a peanut butter filling, Reese's Brownies, Reese's Crunchy Cookie Cups, Reese's Cookies, Reese's Crèmes, Reese's Crispy Crunchy Bar, Reese's Fast Break, Reese's Mini's, Reese's No Bake Bars, Reese's NutRageous etc.

Reese’s is the most popular candy in America over the last decade and has had the highest market share in U.S in the candy world in the last decade. Reese’s Peanut butter cup is the most favourite confection in the U.S and Reese’s success can be attributed to its successful ad campaigns, large number of offerings and strong backing of the parent company. These peanut butter cups were also called Penny cups as they were sold for a penny. Hershey’s acquired Reese’s company for $23.5mn. in 1963. Every year May 18th is observed as I love Reese’s day.

Reese’s produces so many peanut butter cups every year that it could feed one cup to each person in the USA, Australia, Europe, Japan, Africa, China, and India with its annual production.
