One of the most popular non-chocolate candies on the market, Reese's Pieces climbed to fame after their prominent placement in the touching film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. It wasn't long after that wide-eyed, adorable alien captured our hearts that Reeses Pieces captured our attention at the movie theater candy counter. And the rest, my friends, is sweet peanut buttery history! While the movie gave Reese's Pieces the visibility push they needed, they have since gotten by just fine on their fabulous flavor.
