Did you Know????
Reese Peanut Butter Cups originated in 1920 when H.B. Reese Candy Company, located in Hershey, Pennsylvania, created these unique cup-shaped combination of peanut butter and chocolate — yummy goodness! In 1930 these little cup’s were sold for a penny a piece. The treat was considered to be for the young and old alike to enjoy… In 1950 a 100,000 square foot facility was built on Chocolate Avenue. Hershey’s Reese Peanut Butter Cups Candy was launched in Canada 1969 and Reese Crunchy Peanut Butter Cups were launched in 1978 and both have been a Canadian favorite ever since!
