The American classic has a unique salty-sweet taste – cups of melted Hershey’s milk chocolate with a filling of delicious peanut butter.
When Harry Burnett Reese produced the first Peanut Butter Cups in 1928, he most likely did not realize how many fans his invention would have 90 years later. The name of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups was inspired by his work for Hershey’s – the largest chocolate producer in the USA. Even today, the Peanut Butter Cups are encased in Hershey’s chocolate and produced in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
Not only Americans are crazy about the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Meanwhile, the products of Reese’s and Hershey’s are available in many corners of the world. Also thanks to a 40,000-petition, Reese’s has its own holiday. Since the year 2010 the 18th of May is the official “I love Reese’s day.”
Since mid-2018 the popular sweets have been distributed by Conaxess Trade in Austria, continuing their worldwide success story.
