In 1928, H.B. Reese created REESE'S Peanut Butter Cups in the basement of his Hershey home. We rank his innovation high on the list of modern marvels, like electricity and the internet.
The home of the Fighting Cuppies is recruiting all-star REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup lovers for the chance to win up to $25,000 in athletic scholarships. No athletic ability is required. (Because it’s not really a scholarship. It's just straight-up cash, people!)
We make 25 million REESE'S Peanut Butter Cups every day at our Hershey, Pennsylvania factory.
The edgy part of a REESE'S Peanut Butter Cup is called its ridges. And they're delicious.
REESE'S Peanut Butter Cups begin with roasting fresh peanuts for REESE'S one-of-a-kind peanut butter. The peanut butter and milk chocolate are then dropped and pressed into a mold that gives REESE'S Cups their iconic shape.
REESE'S Peanut Butter Cups were created by Harry Burnett (H.B.) Reese in 1928. H.B. Reese was a former employee of the Hershey Chocolate Company when he invented REESE'S peanut butter chocolate candy.
The REESE'S product line includes over 100 candy bars, spreads, cookies, and cereals, including REESE'S Cups made with milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and white creme in a variety of sizes.
The correct way to say REESE’S is “ree-siz,” not “ree-sees.” The best way to remember is to think about REESE’S PIECES Candy because “REESE’S” rhymes with “pieces.”
All varieties of REESE'S Peanut Butter Cups are gluten-free except for seasonally shaped items. Learn more about Hershey’s gluten-free products.
REESE'S Plant Based Oat Chocolate Confection & Peanut Butter Candy Bars are vegan. All other REESE'S products are not vegan.
REESE’S Candy is made by The Hershey Company. In 1956, H.B. Reese’s six sons took over the family business and later sold it to The Hershey Company in 1963.
REESE'S Candy contains chocolate, and therefore should not be consumed by dogs. If you suspect that your dog has consumed chocolate, call your veterinarian immediately.
