I love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I love the regular version, the minis, the shapes they do for the holidays (ie trees and pumpkins and eggs). I even love Reese's Pieces which I suppose isn't exactly the peanut butter cup kind, butI don't like to discriminate. Yet it turns out I have nothing on a North Carolina woman named Renee Cup.
Last month, Reese’s announced their Most Outrageous Act contest. It was to promote their new Outrageous Bar that features Reese’s peanut butter, smooth caramel and crunchy Reese’s Pieces candy, covered in rich milk chocolate. The "Most Outrageous" fan was to receive $10,000 and a year’s supply of candy and Renee WON!
Renee named her daughter…wait for it…. REESE CUPP! The best part of this story? She didn’t do it just to win this contest either. She did it out of pure fandom when Reese was born EIGHT years ago! She and her husband picked the name Reese Eve Cupp . . . so she would be Reese E. Cupp. At eight years old, Reese apparently, quote, “loves her name.”
Most of the other “outrageous” fans they beat out were people with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup tattoos (boring!).
