Reese's Fast Break
Reese's Fast Break is a chocolate bar produced by the Hershey Company. Like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, another Hershey product, Reese's Fast Break has a milk chocolate coating over a peanut butter filling. However, the Fast Break also has a layer of nougat beneath the peanut butter. When Hershey introduced the product to market, the retail packaging had a blue and orange color scheme; Hershey later reversed the colors. Hershey also reformulated the chocolate bar to enhance the peanut butter flavor. Hershey discontinued sales of the Hershey Sidekick in Canada.
