Reese’s Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

February 26th, 2010

Reeses Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

I am an adult (or at least my age dictates so) but when I walk in to a store this time of year and see a display of Reese’s Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs, it never fails to make me want to shriek with glee, grab a bag and go running out of the store like a crazy person as I frantically open said bag, tear one of the little wrappers open with my teeth and smash the candy right into my mouth. I then stop suddenly in my tracks and yell “HELL YEAH!” (slightly distored by a mouthful of chocolate and peanut butter) loud enough to echo in the street and make a nearby cluster of birds fly away.

I will never understand why the peanut butter egg tastes better than the peanut butter cup since they’re essentially the same thing, but it just does. If you disagree, don’t try to argue with me because you’re wrong.

While we’re on the subject of Reese’s, you should check out this funny video by Marni, a fellow chocolate-peanut-butter-aholic who writes one of my favorite blogs, Happy Go Marni. It’s a video made for her job, but I just really got a kick out of the enthusiasm for chocolate & peanut butter, the shout-out to my blog (yay!) and the tip that Talladega Nights is an informative documentary on Nascar, haha.

  • I am in TOTAL agreement with you re: the Eggs being better than the Cups! It the PB-to-chocolate ratio, I think.

    You’ve probably done this already, but if not, you should make your own peanut butter eggs. There’s an excellent recipe here… The only trick is to find someone to share with, because having that many peanut butter eggs in your house can be absolutely disastrous!

    Yay for Easter. :)

  • Really though, why do they taste better? I had to laugh out loud at your post just now, because I feel the same way about those things!! AND they are so freaking addictive! Tell me one person who can seriously only eat one!! LOL Thanks…now I am craving one!! hahahaha

  • OMG I so agree! I love those things! And the trees at Christmas. I agree with Nicole, must be that there is more soft peanut butter middle to the egg. My other fav: Cadburry eggs. Not peanut butter, I know, but I always have to buy one at Easter.

  • The PB cups are too thin. Except maybe the Big Cups, I like those.

  • They do taste better…my husband (a reeses fanatic) says it is the difference in the ratio of peanut butter to chocolate…he takes it way too seriously!
    These things are like crack in my house, especially the smaller ones where I could most likely eat through an entire bag in one day!

  • These things are so addictive, I agree, just like the Reese’s Christmas Trees. Wish they were sold year-round. Only sadly, they’re so much smaller now than when I was a kid.

  • I have always thought the Peanut Butter Eggs were better than the regular Reese Cups. Several people say they think it is the peanut butter to chocolate ratio, but I think it is more than that. The chocolate is different, too. I love these things… I even freeze some to have later because there won’t be any until the Peanut Butter Pumpkins come out. And now they have come out with the Double Peanut Butter Eggs… they are awesome!!!!

  • [...] (the photo above is just about actual size). Differing slightly from it’s more petite cousin the little egg, the big egg’s milk chocolate layer is a substantial 1/4 inch thick as opposed to the small [...]

  • I love these things so much I want to marry one and have little half-human, half-peanut butter egg babies with it.
