Reese’s Cup

CY: Louie finally throws the door open, looks at him and says, ‘Did you get a Reese’s Cup tonight?’. And the kid looks in his bag and he says, ‘Yes sir, I did.’ So Louie grabs it, says ‘Thank you very much!,’ then slams the door in his face.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chocolate cups filled with peanut butter, marketed by The Hershey Company. They were first called Penny Cups, and created in Pennsylvania in 1928 by H.B. Reese, a former dairy farmer who worked as a shipping foreman for candy manufacturer Milton S. Hershey. Reese left his job with Hershey to start his own company, The H.B. Reese Candy Company. In 1963, Reese’s sons merged the company with Hershey, and the Peanut Butter Cups quickly became Hershey’s top selling candy. They remain extremely popular today.
