About this product


Harry Burnett (H.B.) Reese (May 24, 1879 – May 16, 1956) was the inventor of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and founder of the H.B. Reese Candy Company. He was born in Frosty Hill, York County, Pennsylvania, on a farm. Said to have worked odd jobs such as butcher or salesman in his youth, he eventually married around 1900 and went on to have 16 children. After marrying, he moved his family in 1903 to Woodbine, NY, where he worked managing his father-in-law's dairy farm. However, he would move to Freedom, PA to take a job in a factory, in order to feed his ever growing family.

He first moved to Hershey, Pennsylvania in 1917, where he worked for on a dairy farm owned by the Hershey Company. He did well until the farm was closed by Hershey's. Not long after moving his family to Spring Grove, PA, Reese moved back to Hershey, again working for Hershey's. Inspired by his work, Reese began experimenting with candies in his basement, developing some candies he named after his children, the "Lizzie Bar" and the "Johny Bar". After several failed candy-related business ventures in the region, he was by 1920 manufacturing peanut butter cups—then called penny cups because they sold for one cent—among other small candies and assortments.[1] Reese initially sold these candies in retail, and soon also in bulk. It was not long before he started the H.B. Reese Candy Company.
