Peanut Butter and chocolate are a combination that was just meant to be. Reese's is one of the biggest American provider of chocolate and peanut butter goodness, but not the easiest brand to find here in the UK. They are in import shops and some big some of there products are filtering down to more mainstream shops. In Tesco, mixed in with all their Halloween treats, not only did I find a Reese's product, I found a seasonal Halloween edition.
The packet shows that the chocolate is going to be a pumpkin shape, all perfect for the season. I eagerly ripped into the bright orange packet and looked at my chocolate pumpkin. It wasn't that impressive sadly, it was vaguely pumpkin shaped, but not that well defined. Think oval with a bit of notch on top. With a bit of imagination, or a squint of the eye, they could almost have sold it as a bat, or anything else similar really.
There is no additional pumpkin to the flavour, just the usual milk chocolate and peanut butter combination, which does work perfectly. Salty, nutty goodness mixed in with the sweet soothing chocolate, it was absolutely gorgeous to eat. I do love Reese’s products, so there were no surprises there. Just a shame the Halloween theming was a bit basic.
