REVIEW: Reese’s Snack Cake

What are Reese’s Snack Cakes? Each snack consists of a chocolate cake layer topped with Reese’s peanut butter creme and covered in milk chocolate. How are they? When I unwrapped my package of Reese’s Snack Cakes, I was expecting a take on a Hostess CupCake or Zinger: a supple, airy sponge slicked with icing. What I found looked more like a candy bar: two chocolate-coated rectangles nestled in a cardboard sleeve, compact and entirely coated with milk chocolate. Intrigued by the snack’s appe...

REVIEW: Reese’s Mallow-top Peanut Butter Cups

It’s the most wonderful time of year for junk foodies. Post-Christmas clearance candies mingle near Valentine’s Day conversation hearts, while Easter specialties gradually inch into the seasonal aisle like budding spring flowers. At the same time, highly-anticipated new products from our favorite brands emerge to ring in the New Year. A new and limited time spring offering, Reese’s Mallow-top Peanut Butter Cups have been at the top of my wish list, so I was thrilled to find them early. (With th...

REVIEW: Reese’s Big Cup with Pretzels

NOTE: This won’t be available until November. Thanks to Reese’s, I was able to try it a little early. A successful stuffing of Reese’s Pieces into Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups has led us down the sticky hole to the new Reese’s Big Cup with Pretzels. It’s taken four long years to go from Reese’s Pieces to pretzels, but if you’ve ever gone through a sticky hole, you know it takes a while to go through one. While previous stuffed Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were available in Big Cups and the original...

REVIEW: Chips Ahoy Made with Hershey’s Milk Chocolate and Reese’s Pieces

If candy had big egos, how would Hershey’s Milk Chocolate and Reese’s Pieces would feel about Chips Ahoy Made with Hershey’s Milk Chocolate also containing semisweet chocolate chips and Chips Ahoy Made with Reese’s Pieces also containing peanut buttery chips? I imagine Hershey’s Milk Chocolate would be like, “I am THE Great American Chocolate Bar, and I’m not going to share cookie space with something that has semi- in its name.” And I think Reese’s Pieces would say something like, “I’m not onl...

REVIEW: White Reese’s Stuffed with Pieces

What is the White Reese’s Stuffed with Pieces? Exclusive to Dollar General stores, Reese’s newest product is a white crème cup filled with Reese’s Pieces bits and the brand’s signature peanut butter filling. How is it? With each new addition to its line of products, Reese’s takes more of a “choose your own adventure” approach to offering the perfect peanut butter cup to meet individual tastes. Navigating among coating types, sizes and shapes, and filling add-ins, Reese’s fans get to try ou...

REVIEW: Sonic Reese’s Overload Waffle Cone

What is the Sonic Reese’s Overload Waffle Cone? The Sonic Reese’s Overload Waffle Cone is one of two new peanut butter and chocolate ice cream treats available for a limited time. It is a chocolate waffle cone filled with the chain’s real ice cream and topped with peanut butter, crumbled Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and Mini Reese’s Pieces. There is also peanut butter at the bottom of the cone. How is it? I should first disclose that I really like peanut butter and chocolate. I am one of...

REVIEW: Reese’s Chocolate Lovers and Peanut Butter Lovers (2019)

I love me some Reese’s, but it’s been on a bit of a cold streak with me lately. I can’t say I’ve “loved” any of the Reese’s products I’ve reviewed recently, (Thins, Good Humor Bars, Whipped Topping) and it’s left me wondering if I even still “love” the iconic brand I grew up on. Previous disappointments aside, I figured there was no way Reese’s Chocolate Lovers and Peanut Butter Lovers Cups could let me down, right? Reese’s Chocolate Lovers I was tentative about these. I ranted in my Reese’s...

REVIEW: Reese’s Thins Peanut Butter Cups

What are Reese’s Thins? New Reese’s Thins are not Hershey’s attempt at a “diet” food. I was actually dumb enough to think that may have been the case for a second. A smarter person would have realized that these are simply thinner peanut butter cups. How are they? I’d find it a bit disingenuous to whine about any Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. They’re arguably the single greatest piece of candy on Earth, so you’d probably roll your eyes if I went on a long diatribe about how baffled I am by Re...

QUICK REVIEW: Hershey’s Milk Chocolate & Reese’s Pieces Bar

What is the Hershey’s Milk Chocolate & Reese’s Pieces Bar? The love child of a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar and Reese’s Pieces, or as the Hershey’s marketing folks put it “the ultimate celebration of the top two iconic chocolate franchises that will melt your heart to pieces for a once-in-a-lifetime epic treat.” How is it? Based on the aforementioned tagline, I was fully prepared for a life-changing, out-of-body experience that I would eventually tell my grandchildren about. Sadly, the li...

Exchange unwanted Halloween candy for Reese's with this vending machine

I can't help but love the "Reese's Halloween Candy Converter." It's a vending machine where some fortunate trick-or-treaters can feed their unwanted Halloween candy (cough *Good & Plenty*) to get a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in exchange. Now that's a clever marketing stunt! There's only one machine though and it's in New York City: Reese’s lovers can make an exchange from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. outside Washington Square Park on 5th Avenue between Washington Square North and East 8th Street in New Yo...

Horror of Horrors: Candy Brands Get Creative With Halloween Ads

It’s peak season for candy marketing ghouls, and every brand that could conceivably fit into a Halloween trick-or-treat bag has been jockeying for position with new products and promotions. A sampler: Mars’ M&M’s brand is in the midst of a big Halloween promotional push featuring its color characters, which includes an ad in which Yellow starts to take on other-worldly qualities—and the camera shows that a large bite has been taken out of the back of its head. Yet if you’re looking for so...

REVIEW: Reese’s Puffs Treats (2018)

The reborn Reese’s Puffs Treats have cocoa and real Reese’s Peanut Butter. But don’t automatically think this is going to taste anything like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. As a wise man once said, “Don’t go looking to obtain something that can be easily obtained without looking.” Okay, I pulled that line out of the air, and I hope I’m not plagiarizing some minor Greek thinker. But what I’m trying to say philosophically is, why expect something to taste like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup when you c...

REVIEW: Pillsbury Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies

Reese’s and Pillsbury have teamed up to offer a peanut butter cookie dough made with Reese’s Peanut Butter. No mixing. No bowls. Just break apart the block of dough, place the pieces on a cookie sheet, bake, and then think of all the time you’re saving by not making cookies from scratch and having to deal with all the cleaning after. It’ll give you so much time that you have the time to think that. The name Reese’s brings excitement when printed on a package. Go post a photo of something with R...

QUICK REVIEW: Krispy Kreme Reese’s Outrageous Chocolate Doughnut

What is it? The latest and (hopefully) greatest follow up to last year’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Doughnut – the Reese’s Outrageous Chocolate Doughnut; inspired by Reese’s latest chocolate bar. The new menu item features a chocolate yeast doughnut dipped in Hershey’s chocolate fudge icing, topped with mini Reese’s Pieces and drizzled with Reese’s peanut butter and salted caramel sauce. How is it? I gotta say, for a non-filled doughnut this is pretty much as good as it gets. The chocolate yeas...

QUICK REVIEW: Dairy Queen Reese’s Outrageous Blizzard

What is it? Like last month’s Oreo Firework Blizzard, the Reese’s Outrageous Blizzard is a copycat of the candy that shares its name. August’s Blizzard of the Month combines peanut butter and caramel topping in vanilla soft serve with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Pieces — but not the eponymous candy bar. How is it? The Outrageous is a dream come true for my accordion-necked alien induced addiction to Reese’s Pieces. The peanut butter-flavored soft serve is appropriately brash for a treat ...

QUICK REVIEW: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Dairy Whipped Topping

What is it? Reese’s-flavored “Dairy Whipped Topping,” because “whipped cream” wasn’t enough of a mouthful. How is it? On paper, this is a great idea. The can is inviting. The image of peanut butter cream surrounded by a rainstorm of Reese’s cups only elicits happy feelings, so why is this so bad? It’s an aerosol-style can with a nozzle, so I hit it from the source first. That’s where all the fun lies. It’s “dairy whipped topping” so you can imagine the texture, although this is even airie...

REVIEW: Reese’s Outrageous Bar Stuffed with Reese’s Pieces

Reese’s new Outrageous Bar is like a Reese’s Nutrageous Bar. Wait. You don’t know what a Nutrageous Bar is? Well, I can understand why. It’s a candy bar that gets lost in the Reese’s universe that’s full of peanut butter-filled treats with different sizes, shapes, fillings, and chocolates. For those who don’t know, the Nutrageous Bar features peanut butter, caramel, and peanuts (hence the nut- prefix) coated in chocolate. And now that you know about it, you can forget about it because the Outra...

REVIEW: Good Humor Reese’s Bar

Who is this Good Humor Man I always hear about? Growing up, my neighborhood had a Good Humor truck, but the man inside looked like he hadn’t smiled since the Carter administration. His icy demeanor definitely matched the goods he was peddling. Despite the awkward interactions, his sweet siren song never failed to boost my adrenaline levels to Herculean heights. Besides, as unfunny people like myself will always tell you – good humor is subjective. Now while I was usually a WWF Superstar bar, c...

March Madness: Brands Make a Racket as Fans Pick Their Brackets

Now that it’s logged its first significant stunning upset (Yale over Baylor, anyone?) and fan excitement is building, March Madness already is starting to pay off for the growing—and increasingly diverse—roster of brands that have hitched their short-term marketing plans to advertising on US TV and in associated digital campaigns on the NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament.
