How Do You Pronounce Reese’s? – Chances Are You’re Saying It Wrong
I have wanted to get this off my chest for a while now, but I hit the breaking point this past weekend. My all-time favorite candy are Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but here's the problem....the way most people I know pronounce Reese's is completely WRONG and it drives me bonkers.
It is pronounced Ree Suz, NOT Ree Sees!!! Everyone I know says Ree See cups, or worse yet, Ree Sees Pee Cees....again, it is Ree Suz....so, let's get it right.
I am very surprised that Hershey hasn't said anything about this. I guess they figure, as long as they sell like they do, who cares how customers pronounce it as long as they buy it. By the way, who knew that Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were made by Hershey? My very own morning partner Leslie says Ree Sees! I don't know how or why that started, but It's my biggest pet peeve
Whhheeewww...I feel so much better now. Next week, we will tackle the correct pronunciation of one of the most popular streets on Evansville's North Side...Buena Vista. I'll give you a hint.....saying Byouna Vista is wrong....it's Bwayna Vista and I don't care how many years you lived there. It is a Spanish phrase that means 'good view"....don't get me started....lol.
