When we have a full sized Reese’s Cup I know a lot of us eat it by poking the middle out first and eating the peanut-buttery goodness first and the crunchy chocolate ring second. This miniature peanut butter cup combines those two pieces of deliciousness into one crunchy chocolatey uber peanut-buttery bite.

The miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups come in a cute little cupcake-like wrapping. Plop a dollop of whipped cream on top and you’ve got your own little cupcake. The miniature is taller than the original, which allows more peanut butter flavor to fill the inside.

For some of you this could be a huge turn off, “Eww more peanut butter, I want more chocolate!” but for others I know that a little more peanut butter flavor in your Reese’s cup is exactly what you crave. So in case you don’t want to get the sickly feeling you usually do after a pack of normal sized Reese’s cups, grab a couple miniatures and enjoy the chocolate-peanut-butter flavor combination!

“There’s no wrong way to eat a Reese’s” that was the slogan in all of the Reese’s commercials when I was growing up. My personal preference has always been poking out the center with my thumb to eat the extra peanut buttery center first and then the ring of milk chocolate with the residue of peanut butter second. Taking a bit out of it like a cookie works too, and so does plopping the whole thing into your mouth for a mouthful of chocolate peanut butter flavor.

The value packs with three or four peanut butter cups always seemed like a lot to me. After one, I’m satisfied, but craving one more. So two really is the perfect number, after that they don’t taste as good and you wish you hadn’t eaten so many.

That’s a great excuse to share this delicious candy. Also, I highly recommend that you have a thirst quencher within arms reach when eating a Reese’s peanut butter cup. The chocolate and peanut butter definitely do their job in making you thirsty. I’m a water drinking so I’d say always have water by your side with this candy, but I’m sure milk is great with it too.

Harry Burnett Reese was the creator of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, hence the name. He was originally employed by Milton S. Hershey, but left to start his own candy company. The H.B. Reese Candy Company was established in Hershey, Pennsylvania in Reese’s basement. In 1963 Reese’s candy company was bought by Hershey for over 23 million dollars and began making the peanut butter cups in 1928.

Reese’s have always been a hit at Halloween. As a kid I would always be sure to have a nice pile of Reese’s cups at the end of the night. They weren’t always my favorite candy, but it was still nice to have them as a highly valued trading item.

ReeseSticks are a great branch product of Reese’s. They slogan on the side of the package reads “The Crisp you Can’t Resist,” and this couldn’t be more true. Wafer cookies are always addicting, but a Reese’s wafer cookie is one-of-a-kind. They are my roommate’s favorite candy. He explained, “It is just so good! It’s like a crunchy Reese’s.”
