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.
