I was surprised and pleased to find the regular sized Reese’s Crunchy the other day. I’ve had these in mini before and reviewed them here, but as we all know the ratios of peanut butter to chocolate differs in the minis, so I was very interested to try them full size. Now, this Reese’s plays with the whole crunchy versus smooth peanut butter preference, as it’s really the same thing as the regular RPBC, just with bits of peanuts in them.
From what I understand this is a limited edition and has been making appearances and disappearances for the past few years. This is the first time I caught them.
The cups smell the same of sweet, rich, salty peanut butter. You can’t notice the chunks of peanuts through the chocolate, which is nice, as I think I’d be a little wierded out seeing bumps on my cups (that didn’t sound so good…).
The flavor is the same, really. There’s nothing new here in that regard. The chunks of peanuts certainly change the texture. The peanut butter is still soft, smooth with a little grain to it. The chunks, which are about 1/4 of a peanut, are just mixed into the peanut butter center. I find that it doesn’t really change much, other that how I ate it. I chewed this RPBC more, as opposed to taking a bite and letting in melt on my tongue which is how I usually prefer to eat them.
So if you are a crunchy peanut butter lover, these are for you. They’re not different enough to make them anything noteworthy in my book.
