The world’s largest Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup display was unveiled Friday at a Knoxville supermarket.
The honor went to the Food City on Morrell Road. A spokesperson for the Hershey company says their candy Reese’s is the number one brand at Food City.
The celebration of that partnership means a lot of chocolate for Knoxville.
“The display itself, we’ve got over 1,200 cases of candy on there, and when you’re looking at just the pieces of candy, it’s a little over a million. So it’s a lot of candy, a lot of calories. We were excited to be able to have this event for customers to come check us out,” said store manager Donny Rector.
At the unveiling, a Food City representative noted that the orange color of the candy’s wrapper probably doesn’t hurt its popularity in East Tennessee.
