Ever had a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup? Well then, you've had one of these Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs as well. The only difference between these and the Reese Peanut Butter Cups is the shape. Instead of a round cup shape this treat has an egg shape, sort of. What I mean is the shape really could be more egg-like, something with more dimension. What they need is to give this egg more shape, I feel like they just didn't put in a full effort into the design of this Peanut Butter Egg.
Flavour wise and texture wise you’re pretty much getting the same thing you would get in a regular Reese Peanut Butter Cup. It’s a nice balance of the two ingredients, which is something that Reese has mastered over the years. As always, the peanut butter is a little sweeter than peanut butters you buy on the shelf, but it seems to work with the milk chocolate. I can’t really complain about having to eat this egg, but I’m just not wowed either.
The biggest problem with this treat is the lack of detail when it came to designing the egg. I always have a bit of a problem when candy companies call something an egg, when it’s really just a flat bar shaped like an egg. I know that it’s possible to make completely round chocolate eggs, I’ve seen it done dozens of times in the candy world. So why can’t Reese just take their excellent chocolate and peanut butter combination and make it into a real egg shape?
