Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - 1980 commercial

This 1980s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Ad Proves Robots Possess Great Taste!

Since it’s debut by the Hershey Company in 1928, the delicious confectionery known as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups have helped the company to become the best-selling candy brand in the United States with a total of 2.603 Billion a year.

In particular I feel that even with all of the other brands that Hershey produces the peanut butter cup is hands down the best candy out there…and that is coming from a person that can’t have chocolate…or at least can only have it a little through the year.

I totally understand if you disagree with me on just how good Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are and I will truthfully accept that argument but thanks to this TV commercial that originally aired on April 10, 1980 we can see that the candy is tasty enough to even win over a robot who happens to cross paths with a clumsy spacefarer.

Now…I just need to head to the nearest space station and find a robot chum of my own to break out in a happy dance while we eat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups together!
