Reese's Cups Coming With Extra Peanut Butter or Chocolate; M&M's Introduces Hazelnut Flavor

March 26, 2019

America's favorite candies are getting a spring makeover. On Tuesday, Hershey announced that it's coming out with a limited-edition line of Reese's Cups starting in mid-April. Reese’s Peanut Butter Lovers cups will have an extra layer of peanut butter on top instead of the traditional, fully-encasing chocolate coating, while Reese’s Chocolate Lovers cups will pack “more chocolate than we’ve ever packed into a Reese’s Cup.” Meanwhile, Mars announced on Tuesday that it's launching M&M's Hazelnut Spread Chocolate Candies in April. Those will be a permanent addition to the M&M's flavor lineup and will feature a hazelnut spread center inside the candies' traditional milk chocolate coating. “Chocolatey hazelnut spread unlocks a side of indulgence that’s all its own, so we wanted to tap into that mania and bring something to life that our fans would go crazy for,” says M&M's brand director Allison Miazga-Bedrick. “It’s no secret people love hazelnut spread and love M&M’s, so we can’t wait to see the reaction to this breakthrough taste experience.”
