As long as I was trying so many peanut butter chocolates, I thought it was high time I got to a Reese’s Whipps. Especially since they’re not even marked as new anymore. Has it really been that long since they showed up?
The reason I took so long was that the idea of fluffy Reese’s just seemed weird. Unnatural. And why would anyone want something besides the Peanut Butter Cups? As it turns out, this bar is good. Just imagine Reese’s Pieces meets 3 Musketeers and you should have an idea of what it’s like.
The Reese’s Pieces taste is different from the Peanut Butter Cups. It’s more buttery, sweeter, less salty. And has less chocolate. (Or do they even have any?) The weak milk chocolate coating is barely an accent to the “light and fluffy peanut butter flavored nougat,” but somehow I don’t find it lacking.
As I was staring deep into the candy’s heart and soul (aka the filling) to make a deeper connection with it, I noticed that the very outer part of the nougat is different from the rest. It looks more like cookie dough. Perhaps it’s the insulation? Compared with a 3 Musketeers, this nougat is less fluffy. It’s more chewy and a bit more solid. Except for being less sticky, it’s a little similar to eating stiff caramel. Not better or worse than the other nougat, just different.
So I’m sold — no longer will I look more harshly on the Whipps than the other candy shelf finds. The Peanut Butter Cups are still better, but candy is for fun, anyway, and variety (so long as it tastes good) makes it more fun.
