Reese’s, which is owned by Hershey Company, has already experimented with its best-selling candies.
Earlier this year, the company announced the release of an all-peanut butter mug – chocolate free – in honor of National Peanut Butter Day. It was the first time that the entire candy shell of the iconic mug was made with peanut butter and also filled with peanut butter.
Meanwhile, other brands have also released Thanksgiving Edition goodies. Krispy Kreme unveiled limited edition donuts including pecan pie, dutch apple pie, cranberry orange and a classic chocolate glazed donut with Thanksgiving chips.
