I think most everyone can agree with me that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (RPBC) and all the Reese’s family home a special place in our hearts and tummies. There’s just something about them that just screams taste, comfort and nostalgia to me. That’s why partly I love the holidays too, as you can find a Reese’s to match the occasion. There’s pumpkin-shaped Reese’s in the fall, heart ones in February, and egg-shaped ones near Easter. There’s seems to always be a different shape in which to enjoy them, in case you get bored with the traditional cup.
Now, there’s one thing that’s very interesting about RPBC, is that depending on the size and shape, the peanut butter to chocolate ratio changes. Many swear by the minis because there’s more peanut butter, others like the regular cups because the chocolate and peanut butter are a little more equal. That’s why I was very interested to try these Reese’s Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs (the name is a mouth full by itself!) because I was curious if it followed the mini’s ratio or if it had one that was entirely new.
Once unwrapped, you see they’re egg shaped with a big seam running along the sides. You can tell right away that each side was individually piped though of PB and then smooshes together to make the eggs. The flavor is the same we all know and love with the RPBC, smooth milk chocolate with the salty, roasted, creamy flavor of the peanut butter. I’d say the ratio is pretty darned similar to the real RPBC minis, so aside from the shape and the easier breakage in the mouth, these are pretty much the same thing. I have to say, that the round eggs shape does feel very wonderful to roll around in the mouth.
Any RPBC lover would be thrilled to find these beauties in their Easter basket or shopping cart. The wrappers are so attractive and festive I can’t help but love them. I’m going after more of these once the sales start.
