Reese’s

Reese’s is the world renowned confectionery brand for lovers of chocolate and peanut butter!

Reese’s was created by H. B. Reese, a former dairy farmer and shipping foreman for Milton S. Hershey.

In 1923, Reese left his job at The Hershey Company to start his own candy business, The H.B. Reese Candy Company, which was established in the basement of Reese’s home in Hershey, Pennsylvania. In 1926 he moved out of his basement and into his own factory, selling a huge assortment of candies. But his breakthrough was in 1928, when Reese created a perfect blend of rich peanut butter and delicious Hershey’s milk chocolate, inventing Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. The chocolatey peanut butter treat became an instant success, and nearly 100 years later is still loved the world over!

Today Reese’s is owned by Hershey’s, and includes a wide range of chocolate and peanut butter classic products
