Reese’s® Peanut Butter Cup fans everywhere can now rejoice, America’s favorite candy is officially declaring May 18 I Love Reese’s® Day! More than 40,000 fans showed their support and love for the iconic brand by signing an online petition to create this new sweet ‘n salty holiday. The holiday gives Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup fans across the country an excuse to celebrate the delicious treat. It also marks the beginning of the Reese’s Loves You Back™ promotion giving away up to $2 million in cash prizes to fans nationwide. The holiday will be celebrated with a random giveaway of up to 10,000 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups to fans who visited the website to sign the petition.
“Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups’ loyal fans have helped make it the No. 1 selling candy in the country,” said Anna Lingeris, spokesperson for the Reese’s brand. “We thought it was only fitting to celebrate with a dedicated holiday and to thank our loyal fans by putting cash back into their pockets with the Reese’s Loves You Back promotion.”
The month-long campaign to declare I Love Reese’s Day kicked off on April 19 with television star and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup fan Lauren Conrad signing her name to the I Love Reese’s Day petition at the Hershey®’s Times Square store in New York City. To thank the 40,000 fans who joined the campaign and to celebrate this tasty holiday, the Reese’s brand is giving away up to 10,000 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups at random to fans who visited the petition website.
