After rumors swirled on social media last week, Reese’s brand confirmed that it is launching a new product – Reese’s Crunchy Cookie Cup.

The confirmation brings an end to the online #Cupspiracy that started two weeks earlier, driving excitement and anticipation for the newest item.
“You could say this combination is ‘cuptivating,’” said Ryan Riess, Senior Brand Manager, Reese’s Brand. “Reese’s fanatics are one-of-a-kind. They have a love and devotion to the brand that is unlike anything I have ever seen, and have been buzzing at the potential thought of a new innovation from the brand. We’re excited to finally let the secret out of the bag and end the #Cupspiracy – announcing the new Reese’s Crunchy Cookie Cup. You could say we crushed it!”
