Reese's Pieces, peanut butter candy in a crunchy shell. Can you say, "E.T. phone home?"
Reese's Pieces are a extension of the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups product line. It was designed to capitalize on the success of the chocolate-covered peanut butter cups. The candy was introduced in 1978 and became very popular with the 1982 release of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, in which the Reese's Pieces were featured.
Reese's Pieces Memories
When I was 5 years old, the movie "E.T." came out. I was absolutely obsessed with that cute alien and his friend Elliot. "E.T." was a big part of my childhood, as I named a bird "Elliot" and saw the movie so many times, I could recite all the lines. I also became obsessed with the peanut butter and chocolate candies featured in the film. To this day, I love that snack! They take me back to my youth each time I eat a handful of the colorful candies. ~ Kristen from Indiana
