August Candy Of The MonthAugust 11, 2014
The Classic Reese’s is a perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter!
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were created in 1928 by H.B. Reese, a former dairy farmer and shipping foreman for Milton S. Hershey. Reese was inspired by Hershey, so he left dairy farming to start his own candy business.
May 18 is the official “I Love Reese’s” Day. It was established after nearly 40,000 fans joined a campaign page on Facebook asking for their favourite candy to have its own special day.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are one of the most popular candies sold during the Halloween season, ranking behind candy corn and Snickers.
