Reese’s Pieces Don’t Have Chocolate In Them Your Whole Life Has Been A Lie


Well, guys, it looks like one of the most iconic candies, Reese’s Pieces, isn’t at all what we think it is. It turns out that Reese’s Pieces do not actually contain any chocolate. This might be enormously disappointing to anyone who considered themselves to be a devoted Reese’s Pieces consumer and it’s ok to feel betrayed, however, technically Reese’s never told us these bite-sized candies contained any chocolate in the first place. Here are the ingredients.


Luckily they do contain peanuts. PHEW. If you knew that Reese’s Pieces were just little peanut candies without chocolate would you be equally as obsessed? We’ll never know.

There’s also the fact that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups thankfully do have milk chocolate in them, so maybe we just automatically assumed all Reese’s products gave us both a chocolate and peanut butter fix. Either way, it’s pretty disappointing. Does this mean we’re going to stop eating them? That’s a totally different question.

Now you know. Next time you’re craving chocolate, don’t reach for Reese’s Pieces, maybe stick with the peanut butter cups. YOU CAN’T TRUST ANYONE THESE DAYS.
