Reese's Pieces are a peanut butter candy manufactured by The Hershey Company for the North American market; they are also available in Ireland and the United Kingdom. They are circular in shape and covered in candy shells that are colored yellow, orange, or brown. They can be purchased in plastic packets, cardboard boxes, or cup-shaped travel containers. The candy was introduced in 1978 and introduced to Canada in 1980. The then relatively new product became very popular with the 1982 release of E. T. the Extra-Terrestrial, in which the candy is featured. *** Description sourced from Wikipedia.
