Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (WH Smiths)


Although I have heard of these chocolates, I haven’t tried them before. They are an American confectionery, but it is interesting to note that they were spotted in a branch of WH Smiths, not in a specialist importers. Next to them on the shelf was a packet of Reese’s Pieces, which I have only ever seen in the ‘American’ section of department stores.
Inside the packet were three individual Peanut Butter Cups, each presented in their own paper case.
Each ‘cup’ has a chocolate base and coating, with a generous portion of thick, firm peanut butter inside. The filling is smooth, not at all gritty, and has a good texture. Each ‘cup’ is sweet, but salty and the combinations of flavours are just lovely, a perfect example of the magic that is peanut butter and chocolate.

Reeses are strange - they turn up in places you wouldn't expect in the UK. For a while, the little shop at Milton Keynes hospital stocked them. And I think Reeses Nutrageous are regulars on Tesco shelves, at least here in MK.

I'm a big fan of chocolate and peanut butter, so it is really nice to see them becoming more available.

My sister asked for the village shop to stock them when she worked there and they became a best seller.

They are getting more widespread now, most Tesco and Morrisons in Leeds have them.
