I used to work for the H.B. Reese Candy Co. Milton Hershey did NOT invent the Peanut Butter cup. Sorry to disappoint you. The Hershey Company Bought the Reese Factory from H.B. Reese, hence why the wrapper says manufactured by Hershey Company.

no! Hershey made Reese's! The books don't lie people! Also my Mom read the word Hershey on the back of the wrapper of a Reese's candy. That's PROOF!!!
