Have you ever eaten a 3 Musketeers bar, then you’ve pretty much tried a Reese Whips bar. I always find it difficult, and it always nags at me when I try a candy that's very similar to another candy, but I'm not sure if I've reviewed the other candy. What I'm trying to say is the Reese Whip kind of taste like a 3 Musketeers bar, but instead of just a whipped nougat center covered in chocolate, this bar also has a bit of a peanut flavour as well.
It appears that the angle Reese is going with is peanuts. Pretty much everything they touch has some kind of peanut flavour or peanuts added. It's as if Reese wants us to think that if it tastes like peanut butter or peanuts it must be a Reese product. I was in a grocery store the other day and I even found... Reese peanut butter. So basically, part of the candy world has come full circle, it's kind of neat.
Although I have to admit that I did enjoy this bar, the peanut flavour really didn't knock me over. I think it might have been better if maybe they added a layer of peanut butter or even kept the peanut flavoured nougat and added some real peanuts to it as well. Something just wasn't making me sing the praises of Reese when I bit into this, but I can't tell you for sure if it could be fixed.
