We seem to do this a lot... you sit and read another review of the same treat with a slight variation, you listen to me complain about it, and then we go about our day. Well, today is a little different: I'm singing a different tune. "Why?" you ask. Well, I have to admit, I kind of like this variation; it surprised me and I thought it was creative. It's not the fact that it's a big peanut butter cup - I'd eaten those way before Reese even put them out. For me, it's the idea of putting whole peanuts in a giant peanut butter cup. Brilliant idea!

As usual, the Reese peanut butter is sweet as can be. I'm not faulting them for it, trust me. I do find that with these big cups the peanut butter gets a little dry quickly, although they did thicken the chocolate a little for balance. And the peanuts? They're great, something you can really sink your teeth into.
