Reese Reester Bunny


It's very rare that I buy a treat on name alone, and this is not going to be the exception. After all I'm a big fan of Reese treats or really any treat with the yummy combination of chocolate and peanut butter. I was also in the market currently to get an Easter themed snack to review for Candy Critic for this upcoming Easter. So, the name itself wasn't the only factor as to why I bought this treat, however the name was the part that caught my attention and was the tipping point that convinced me that this would be a great treat to try.

The Reester Bunny itself is kind of cute. It should be pointed out that the bunny on the wrapper is different than the bunny under the wrapper made of chocolate. This is a slight peeve I have with treats like these, but I'm sure I won't lose any sleep over it. The chocolate isn't too bad, it’s nice and smooth with a good cocoa flavour, this makes me happy. It's a little shinier than I like my milk chocolate to be (often a sign of cheap chocolate), but not so bad and the chocolate seemed to melt fairly easily. In fact, the chocolate melted in my hands a bit while I was eating it (a very good sign).

The chocolate to peanut butter ratio is a little skewed depending on where you bite into this bunny. Where the peanut butter is thickest the chocolate seems just right. Where the peanut butter is thinnest it seems a little too chocolaty. I'm sure if it were a perfect bar or round cup, this problem would never happen, but the complicated bunny shape might have been too big a challenge to overcome. All in all it's a nice little treat and so much fun to say it's name.
