“I have always loved Reese’s Pieces candy and was excited to learn that bite-sized versions of York, Almond Joy and Hershey’s Special Dark would be making their Pieces Candies debut. With my busy schedule, I am constantly on the go and Pieces Candies are great for enjoying anytime,” said Simpson-Wentz.
