There's One Thing You Never Knew About Reese's Pieces

I CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH.

Posted on

As you may know, Reese's Pieces are already a controversial candy, because people cannot agree on the pronunciation.

For the record, it rhymes with "pieces," not "CiCi's".

CRAZY, RIGHT?

They share a name with the world's greatest ~CHOCOLATE~ candy, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, so... Why? WHY???

The candies were invented 50 YEARS apart (Peanut Butter Cups in 1928 and Pieces in 1978). Why on EARTH would they share a name if they don't share one of the TWO main ingredients??? And HOW are Reese's Pieces so delicious without chocolate???
