Today is H.B. Reese’s birthday. Yes, he is that Reese. He was the inventor of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. They are not the fanciest example of American cuisine and, while I like them, no love them, Reese’s are not the best either. But in many ways, what could be more American than Reese’s? Nowadays they are found in more places around the world. Not long ago, they were a rare item turning up in “gourmet” food sections in European groceries. Many a trip overseas saw me packing a bunch to take along for friends. Reese’s are America’s answer to Nutella.
