Everyone has their particular way of saying certain words, you know the whole potato patato debate. It's all good and dandy to be an individual, but let's face it, some pronunciations are correct and others, well they just aren't.
Take Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for instance. Some people say Ree-sis, while others say Ree-sees. Which would be completely fine, if one weren't completely wrong. Reesesgate has divided families, made friends become enemies, and even started some wars. This ends now!
Okay, I'm totally exaggerating but Reesesgate has taken the Twitterverse by storm.

I can't believe I just got ticked off over an argument over the pronunciation of 'reeses' that I wasn't even involved in— TwoBearsHighFiving (@legendary_indi) April 14, 2017
ITS 6 AM AND INSTEAD OF SLEEPING THE FLAG-DRUMLINE BUS IS DEBATING THE PRONUNCIATION OF REESES— Charlotte Shreve @Self.Conf (@littlechrob) October 29, 2016
if u say Reeses as ree-sees direct urself to the Reeses puff Reeses puff peanut butter chocolate flavor jingle for the correct pronunciation— Alyssa (@_alyssh) October 27, 2016
I have another pronunciation thing but non-tech related— jessie frazelle (@jessfraz) September 11, 2016
Reeses pieces: do you make it rhyme so "rees-eees piec-eees"?
So finally, which is the right way to pronounce Reese's? Is it Ree-sis or Ree-sees? Spoon University did a little digging, all the way down to the candy's origin. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Reese's Pieces were both named after their creator, Harry Burnett Reese. Because the candy is named after the man, the correct pronunciation is actually Ree-sis and not Ree-sees!
I guess my life hasn't been a lie after all.
