Trivia: What was the original name of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups?
A Cup O’ Sunshine
Correct Answer: Penny Cups
So why is this answer correct? : In 1917, Harry Burnett Reese got a job on a dairy farm owned by Milton Hershey, owner of Hershey Chocolate Company. Reese later began working at the chocolate factory, where he was inspired to create his own concoctions. Reese released a chocolate peanut butter candy in 1928, calling them “Penny Cups” because he charged one penny per candy. The cups grew in popularity, and in 1963, Hershey’s purchased H.B. Reese Candy Company for $23.5 million.
