Let's play another round of what I thought and what I got, today with our special guest "Reese's Swoops".

What I thought: I was getting chocolate-covered "Pringles". If you've never tried a chocolate-covered chip before, it's really something you have to try. I thought to myself, wow, a big candy company trying something a little edgy.

What I got: "Swoops" are little chocolate-slice type things. They look like they could be chips, but they're not. Now that's not to say I didn't like them, in fact they're not bad at all. There nothing really that different as far as taste and texture goes, but I guess the packaging and shape are a little different. In the case of these peanut butter ones it would have been better if there was real peanut butter in them, maybe those swirls on top are real peanut butter but I'm not sure. It'll be interesting to see how long these things last, they may make it on the lunch snack circuit, but compared to some of the bars out there they just don't cut it.
