About Reeses®


Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were introduced in the 1920's by Harry Reese, a former dairy employee of Milton S. Hershey, founder of Hershey Foods Corporation.

Reese began selling his peanut butter cups in five-pound boxes for use in candy assortments. Ten years later, he added the cups which were sold for a penny a piece to the assortment line.

In 1963, the H.B. Reese Candy Company was sold for $23.5 million to the Hershey Chocolate Company. Under Hershey, the company recently began introducing limited edition items including White Chocolate (now a permanent item), Dark Chocolate, INSIDE OUT and BIG CUP peanut butter cups.
