Florida Woman Wins Motherload of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups


Lakeland, Florida, resident Leanne Mohler will soon have more chocolate covered peanut butter cups on her hands than she literally knows what to do with–but she’s working on a plan. Originally from Waterloo, Iowa, she is the youngest of nine children and has more than 20 nieces and nephews. “I love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups but 432 packages is a lot. I will definitely be sharing this prize, that’s for sure.”

Mohler says she was VERY surprised that she won. “It reminded me of an episode of “The Brady Bunch” when Bobby won a big box of chewing gum playing pool. Lucky for me, I prefer Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!”

The Grand Prize in the Reese’s/Food Channel sweeps also included 6 tickets to the new “Green Lantern” movie from Warner Bros. The summer blockbuster opened last weekend and came in number one at the box office. “I don’t get to see as many movies as I would like to,” Mohler says. “Because of this, I am very excited to see ‘The Green Lantern’.”

Mohler, who’s single with one “furry child”–a dachshund named Sami–says she cooks at home a lot and gets the majority of her recipes online, including visits to The Food Channel. She says, “My next recipe will be for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup cheesecake! YUM!”

The University of Florida grad is also looking forward to the upcoming football season. She signed off with a cheer of “Go Gators!” 

Congrats to Leanne Mohler from The Food Channel and Reese’s. A very large box of candy is on its way. Enjoy!
