Lessons In Unconventional Innovation: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

< Back to Agenda

Looking forward to this session? Share it!

Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Cup is the poster child of innovation. From being invented on a train ride home to an agile, real-time, launch, the Reese's brand re-wrote the book on innovation possibilities. Capitalizing on an 'equity explosion' that created '#Cupfusion' the brand's non-traditional, unconventional launch approach, led to quadrupling sales expectations in the first year.

In this session, you will learn how:

  • the Reese's brand delivered one of the most unconventional, successful and cost-efficient product launches in Hershey history
  • to take smart risks in innovation that drive growth
  • to leverage social listening to get to know your consumer
