Candy brand Reese’s has a new snack offering.
Launched by the Hershey Company in the final week of January 2023, Reese’s Dipped Animal Crackers are nostalgic childhood snacks covered with the brand’s signature chocolate and peanut butter candy.
What are Reese’s Dipped Animal Crackers?
Reese’s Dipped Animal Crackers are bite-sized, animal-shaped crackers completely covered in peanut butter candy and half dipped in milk chocolate to achieve the delicious Reese’s taste. Reese’s Dipped Animal Crackers come in 4.25 oz bags, each one featuring 13 different animal shapes, including lions and bears.
Certified kosher, these treats are perfect to snack on no matter what you get up to. Whether you’re watching your favorite TV show, running errands, or exploring the great outdoors, these crackers make a great snack companion as they are portable and easy to consume.
Reese’s Dipped Animal Crackers can also be used as a filling for birthday gift bags, an add-on to back-to-school lunch boxes, and even as toppings for bridal and baby shower candy dishes. And just like other products from Reese’s portfolio, these peanut-buttery and chocolatey treats also make wonderful gifts for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and Halloween.
“Reese’s Dipped Animal Crackers are sweet and crunchy, creating the ultimate snack. They’re truly something to howl about,” said Nowell Kahle, manager, Snacks & Grocery at The Hershey Company, in a press release, announcing the new product.

Candy brand Reese’s is best known for its Peanut Butter Cups, a chocolate cup filled with peanut butter. They were invented in 1928 by H. B. Reese, a former dairy farmer and shipping foreman for the Hershey Company, who left the firm to start his own candy business — the H.B. Reese Candy Company.
When H. B. Reese died in 1956, the company was passed to his six sons, Robert, John, Ed, Ralph, Harry, and Charles Richard Reese. Fast-forward to 1963, the Reese brothers merged the H.B. Reese Candy Company with the Hershey Chocolate Corporation in a tax-free stock-for-stock merger.
