Reese’s is one of the best chocolates here in the US, but what is the correct pronunciation of this delicious treat’s name? Is it Rees-EES or Ree-SIS? It’s like figuring out if it’s to-MAY-to or to-MA-to or figuring out if it’s car-mel or car-a-mel? These debates have plagued people for years, to the point of broken friendships and the apocalypse.

Anyhow, people on Twitter are fired up about this, of course.

Yes, one of life’s greatest mysteries has been answered. Reese’s is pronounced none other than Ree-SIS. We can all go home now and continue our daily lives now. Though, it would be nice to know how exactly you pronounce caramel, too. Guess we’ll never know.
