Introducing Reese’s Pieces! Commercial 1979

Everyone knows what M&M’s are! Now imagine you’re crunching into another dull handful of M&M’s and you get a delicious mouthful of peanut butter! Yeah, that just happened! And it’s good…REALLY GOOD! When Reese’s Pieces hit the scene back in 1979, it turned the M&M’s eating world upside down, well…it did for me anyway. Scrumptious!


Enjoy the first commercial to feature the bite size bits of bliss! The reactions are real, at least they should be. Try and stop at just one handful, I dare ya! A few years before a little Extra Terrestrial dude fell in love with ’em…I fell in love with ’em!
