Reese’s Pieces are a peanut butter-flavored candy manufactured by The Hershey Company. They are circular in shape, and covered in candy shells that are colored yellow, orange, or brown. Because of this coloring, Reese’s Pieces are commonly used in autumn themes (for decoration, promotion, etc.). They can be purchased in plastic packets, cardboard boxes (Canada), or cup-shaped travel containers. The candy was introduced in 1978, and launched throughout the United States in 1980.
[The Hershey Company] was founded by Milton S. Hershey in 1894 as the Hershey Chocolate Company, a subsidiary of his Lancaster Caramel Company. Hershey’s candies and other products are sold worldwide.
