This Hershey's/Reese's Collab is the Best of Both Worlds
Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder are (probably) shaking in their boots right now, because The Hershey Company has unveiled a mashup to rival them all: The Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Reese’s Pieces candy bar hit shelves this month.
That’s right: We can finally have our Hershey’s and eat our Reese’s, too. That’s how the saying goes, right?
Instagram user @candyhunting spotted the chocolate hybrid at Walgreens.
“The mashup between Hershey’s Milk Chocolate and Reese’s Pieces candy is an ultimate celebration of the top two iconic chocolate franchises that will melt your heart to pieces for a once-in-a-lifetime epic treat,” says Hershey’s senior brand manager Kriston Ohm in a press release.

To celebrate the launch, Hershey invited real-life engaged couple, Jenny Ries and Craig Hirschey, to Hershey, Pennsylvania for a photoshoot. Yes, their names are pronounced “Reese” and “Hershey.”

Needless to say, the collaboration got a ringing endorsement from Ries.
"This is a match made in chocolate heaven! We're excited our favorite brands are helping us celebrate, especially since we all have matching sweet names,” Ries says. “Craig and I can't thank Hershey's and Reese's enough for throwing us the sweetest engagement celebrations."
The bars are available now in standard and king sizes.
