It might not be the biggest news out of CES 2011, but it could be the littlest. Well, the most edible at least. Taking advantage of the electronics show to announce a new miniature product may be commonplace, but The Hershey Company usually isnâ€™t involved. However, when the announcement is regarding Reeseâ€™s Peanut Butter Cups, they get the benefit of the doubt.
Billed as the â€œNext Big, Little Thingâ€, Reeseâ€™s Minis are tiny versions of the popular peanut butter and chocolate treat. Available in two sizes, the candy snack comes unwrapped, making them easy to eat.
â€œAnd they solve an important issue for techies, too â€“ their size and unwrapped state makes them ergonomically perfect for one-handed internet surfing or tapping out a text message.â€
Sure, why not? Itâ€™s Friday!
Oh, and to justify the timing, hereâ€™s a photo to put it all in perspective.
Intel And Hersheyâ€™s Press Release:
MINI IS THE NEXT BIG THING AT CES. Intel Corporation and Reese’s(R) Peanut Butter Cups launch exciting new “mini” innovations at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
