Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are an American candy consisting of a chocolate cup filled with peanut butter, marketed by The Hershey Company. They were created on November 15, 1928 by H. B. Reese, a former dairy farmer and shipping foreman for Milton S. Hershey. Reese’s generates more than $2 billion in annual sales for The Hershey Company, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are number one on the list of top-selling candy brands.
In 1923, The H.B. Reese Candy Company was established in the basement of Reese’s home in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were his most popular candy, and Reese eventually discontinued his other lines. In 2012, Reese’s was the best-selling candy brand in the United States with sales of $2.603 billion, and was the fourth-best-selling candy brand globally with sales of $2.679 billion—only $76 million (2.8%) of its sales were from outside the United States market. Additionally, the H.B. Reese Candy Company manufactures the Kit Kat in the United States, which had 2012 U.S. sales of $948 million.
