HERSHEY, Pa., July 17, 2007 – The Reese’s® brand is shaking things up this summer with the launch of Reese’s Peanut Butter & Banana Creme Cups starring Elvis Presley. The Collector Edition Reese’s Elvis® Cups celebrate The King’s love of peanut butter and banana sandwiches and feature a thin layer of banana creme combined with Reese’s creamy peanut butter centers. A treat fit for “The King,” the Collector Edition Reese’s Elvis Cups feature four different iconic images of the legendary Elvis Presley and give consumers the chance to “Live Like The King” with an instant-win promotion.

From Graceland to pink Cadillacs, Elvis lived a life of luxury and Reese’s lovers can too. Now through December 31, 2007, more than 10,000 prizes will be given away instantly in the Reese’s “Live Like The King” promotion. Prizes include: a trip for four to Graceland in Memphis, Tenn.; a scarf owned by Elvis; a cancelled check signed by Elvis; and Elvis-themed sunglasses and license plates. In addition, one lucky grand-prize winner will ride like The King in an overhauled, totally redesigned custom Reese’s Elvis Tribute Car built by car-crafting legend Boyd Coddington. The 1957 Cadillac is inspired by Elvis’ pink Cadillac and includes all the upgrades and features of a 2007 custom hot rod.
