Reese’s Dark Peanut Butter Cup (America)

Another big thanks to Gigi for sending me all of these wonderful goodies from America. I had no idea that there was more than one variety of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, so to say I was jumping with excitement when I saw what she sent would be an understatement. I have decided to rank these as I try them, for comparisons sake.
First up then the dark version. I might be biased, even the idea of dark chocolate and peanut butter seems to make me salivate. There two peanut butter cups in the pack, and they both have a good portion of dark chocolate. There are lovely strong tones of cocoa in the chocolate, and the flavour is lovely and rich. The contrast is perfect with the smooth peanut butter. The nuts, the salt, the cocoa, all blend together so wonderfully. This is going to be hard to beat! Reese’s certainly know what they are doing!

I agree, there's a reason Reese's is the king of candy in the U.S. They have a winning formula that works and they run with it with very slight variations to their product. I hate products that try to branch off with completely new items that are so far from the original.

It’s odd though because that winning formula doesn't exist in the UK market. It seems Brits don't believe in peanut butter and chocolate - which is crazy if you ask me, because it is just fantastic and Reese's are very clever folk!

It's definitely the salt that makes Reeses so good, I need to find some dark choc ones!

I posted a salt n chocolate recipe in the week, I think you'd like it!

I just love that salty, nutty flavour mixed with sweet chocolate - yum!

Will take a look at the recipe! :-)
