We know there's a debate over whether it's car-a-mel or CAR-mel . . . coo-pon or queue-pon . . . and peh-KAN or PEE-kan. But here's one I didn't realize: Reese's.
There's a debate going on right now across the Internet about whether it's Ree-cees . . . or Ree-sis. One woman put up a poll on Twitter, and after almost 200,000 votes, Ree-sis is leading Ree-cees, 61% to 39%.
How do you pronounce the name of the peanut butter cup candy with the orange wrapper?— Princesa Elote (@deloryasss) July 2, 2017
It's pronounced to rhyme with pieces surely? Unless people are saying that as "Pee-Cees"?!— Rich Gibbons (@Rich_Gibbons) July 3, 2017
Anyone else who says "ree-sees" instead of "reese's" to me is getting razor-scootered in the ankle— Deo © (@conledeo) July 3, 2017

Reese's itself is being totally unhelpful, by the way . . . someone tweeted them to ask for the answer, and they responded, quote, "Just like there's no wrong way to eat a Reese's, there's no wrong way to pronounce Reese's." Thanks, guys.
