Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in Japan

They’ve arrived and are taking the candy world over. Well, not really, but they did outsell KitKat mini which are popular at least by the ex-pats, by 1.7 times. But here’s the crazy part: “One difference between the export version and the one sold in the U.S. is apparent from comparing labels. The Reese’s sold abroad do not list “TBHQ,” which is shorthand for tertiary butylhydroquinone, a preservative.” (Chicago Tribune – Reese’s)
