Reese’s Pieces (House of Fraser 23/08/08)


I love peanut butter, particularly when it is combined with a chocolaty flavour. I was once completely bewildered in the supermarket when I discovered that chocolate-peanut butter spread didn’t exist. I’m not the only one that feels this way about peanut butter being a sweet rather than savoury, there is a group for people like me on facebook:

But I digress…

I have tried several products in the Reese’s range before, but oddly enough not this, which is their core product. It seems much easier to find Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or Reese’s Sticks, and yet the phrase “Reese’s Pieces” is always in my mind when I do. Anyway, I really enjoyed this, although I feared I wouldn’t as there is a distinct lack of chocolate! However the product is still sweet and the candy sugar shell balances the flavour very well. I even rate this higher than peanut M&Ms which is saying something!

I had these in NYC this spring and loved them. I have had the nutrageous and the cups before in the UK but never found the pieces. I found some in my local Tesco express the other day, so hopefully they will be more widely available from now on!
