Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

30 04 2007

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

One of the most famed of all American chocolate. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups set the standard for chocolate-peanut butter hybrids. And finally I’ll be reviewing them.

My pack only had 2 cups in for some reason, as I had a smaller pack, but I am aware, and more used to, the 3 cup packet. The pack is pretty plain looking, a nice orange all over, with the slogan ‘Milk Chocolate Reese’s 2 Peanut Butter Cups’, they don’t need to explain any further because everyone knows what these are, and the name sort of gives the game away anyway, which is something that doesn’t happen with most chocolates.

In the pack are two chocolate cups, inside small black packets, removing the chocolate cup from its packet shows that the chocolate is greasy, very greasy. It has a tendency to melt very easily which can be messy. But these are so good that it doesn’t really matter.

Biting into it reveals a thin layer of chocolate, and in the centre is all peanut butter. And it tastes so good, the peanut butter is salty and yet sweet with the chocolate, it isn’t too sickly, and it’s so more-ish. I’m glad I’ve only got one pack of these because I’m afraid I’d find myself munching through pack after pack until I was sick. The 2 here though were filling enough, but they leave you wanting more, so much more…

Each cup contains 115 calories, 11.5g of Carbs (10g of which sugar), 6.5g of fat (4.5g of which saturates) and 2g of Protein. I highly recommend these, if you are looking for any chocolate with peanut butter, this is it. This is the original, and is still the best.

That’s so weird that your packages used to contain three cups. Ours have always had two.

I remember there used to be “King Sized” packs that had four cups in them, but they may be long gone in our fight against obesity. (har har)

Have you ever had the miniatures?

Sorry I obviously worded this post badly, it’s not that they used to contain 3, they just do contain 3. I’m pretty sure that the pack I reviewed for this was from America though, which would explain why there were only 2 cups here.

And I’ve never had the miniatures, in fact the only other edition of the PB Cups I’ve had were the White Chocolate Egg variety, an Easter edition most likely, and thought they were pretty good.

hey can anyone tell me the nutritional value per cup in the 3 packs sold in the uk? for some reason they dont show any 😦

Information can be found there. Those facts are based on the 51g package, and I’m fairly sure the 3 packs are bigger than that. So I would guess you add another half value onto each of those figures. e.g. for the calories, they would have 420 per pack, as opposed to 280. I’m just guessing here though, so in case that calorie amount scares you (it scares me!) then don’t take my word as gospel.

wow..thanks for getting back to me so quick..i hate it when they have no value on the bars especially my favourite guylian praline seashells and the wonka whippi-scrumtious fudge mallow delight as i can no longer eat them :'(..love your review site though and its gives you a chance to eat chocolate for work 🙂

2 06 2007
Terry

Not a problem. I hate it as well, I would have thought it would be compulsory by now to have all the values on the bars but some of them seem to get away with it. And if you think I’m getting paid for this, then you’re sadly mistaken. I already have a full time job and a University course, this blog isn’t earning me anything. 😦

2 06 2007
babycakes

well i just kind of ment you have a reason to eat loads of chocolate lol the rest of us have to find an excuse to make us feel better *laughs*… 🙂 i thought you had to have values on everything now but as you say some get away with lol probs cos if they do put the value on the back no one would buy it eg hiigh! 😛

2 06 2007

Well I was hoping that eating the chocolate would make me gain weight, I don’t want to go into my life story but suffice it to say I’m badly underweight for my height, but it hasn’t helped at all! And I’m not sure how they get away with it, I know the Reese’s stuff isn’t manufactured here so it doesn’t matter to them, but I guess it isn’t actual law yet that you have to put the values on the pack.

2 06 2007
babycakes

your lucky then eating and eating not gaining weight 😮 wow! i have to eat lots of chocolate to gain weight aswell but i put it on easy 😦 lol ahh yeah thats true though i suppose! bit annoying though! 😛 :@do you like doing these reviews 😀 ?

2 06 2007
Terry

Well let’s see, I get to eat lots of different chocolate, so I think that’s a yes!

Also I recently got a webcam so my pictures will have improved quality soon. I was thinking of doing some video reviews of me literally showing the chocolate, eating it and then describing it, but I’m not sure if people would like that.

Maybe I’ll do text reviews and put video reviews on Youtube or something. Who knows? Exciting times ahead though!

2 06 2007
babycakes

yeah! that would be funny downloading a speaking chocolate review! go for it gotta try new things eh 😀 ! worth a try lol least you know what to say when people ask what you do in your spare time! 😀

3 06 2007
Terry

Yeah I don’t think it’ll impress the ladies too much.

“So what do you do for fun?”

“I EATS CHOCOLATEZ AND TELL PEOPLE ABOOT IT!”

“Ah…”

Yeah, maybe not.

3 06 2007
babycakes

lol…well you never know it might float some peoples boats….or maybe not lol 😀 ah well least you know which would be the best chocolate to someone though eh 😛 😀

3 06 2007
babycakes

the uk packs of 3 are also 51g so would you say it has the same nutritional value as the american 2 pack?

3 06 2007
Terry

I take it you bought some just to confirm it eh! I assume they’re the same then, 280 calories isn’t too bad then.

3 06 2007
babycakes

yeah i did lol it says the weight is 51g so i was assuming they were the same values…just wanted a second opinion? 😀 because 280 would be really good for it 😛 i havent tried them before..so i hoping they might be like the peanut kitkat mm:P lol thanks for gettin back to me..

3 06 2007
Terry

I think these are bettter than the Peanut Butter KitKats, there’s more PB here, and it seems to be of a better quality. I think they’re delicious, and this is coming from someone who really doesn’t like PB much at all.

4 06 2007
babycakes

i know i was a bit..:S about trying them because i hate peanut butter! but i like the kit kat so i think ill give it a go and pick some up on my way home from college! 😀

4 06 2007
Terry

I thought you already picked some up? Or were you just checking the weight?

4 06 2007
babycakes

i was just checking the weight to double check..OK Omg they are gorgeous!! god bless hersheys and nestle 😀 😀

4 06 2007
Terry

Awesome, glad you like them. I’d have hated to recommend something only for it to turn out to be horrid.

5 06 2007
babycakes

well you got it spot on mmmm 😛 damn i cant get anymore either cos the shop sold out 😮 what a crime *chuckles* 😀

5 06 2007
Terry

My shop’s got loads of them in, but they’re pretty expensive so not many are sold. How much were they for you?

5 06 2007
babycakes

i got them for 49p 3 pack! what about you? do you know where i can find out the values for the nutrageous bar as my local shops has tons *laughs* 🙂

5 06 2007
Terry

49p? Lucky you, they’re 69p up here. Absolute ripoff, but I get them for free sometimes anyway, which is why I reviewed them. And the Nutrageous bars should be somwhere on that link I posted earlier, shouldn’t they? We don’t have any but I still managed to find one anyway. It’s very nice, should have a review up in a week or so about it.

5 06 2007
babycakes

by the way i mean the 60g one lol

5 06 2007
babycakes

its says the info isnt avaliable for the 60g bar :S i can get em cheap then 😀 lucky me…*smile* & *laughs*

5 06 2007
Terry

That’s lame, I have no idea then unless a Google search brings anything up. And yeah you’re very lucky indeed. I would have thought a University shop would make things cheaper, but it seems to be the exact opposite. 😦

6 06 2007
babycakes

nope its all the 51g bars! err :@ lol yeah you would think so but then its like hospital shops and garages its more expensive then a little corner shop *laughs* i should stock up while they are cheap..they are now the 5 choc bar added to my 5 fave sweets etc..lol 😛 what are yours just wondering?

6 06 2007
Terry

My 5 favourites? Tough choice…

In no particular order, they’d be:

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Kinder Bueno
Ferrero Rocher (Just had one and remembered how awesome they are)
Azuki Bean KitKat (I have an old review on it)
And probably the Starbar, or Peanut Butter KitKat, I’m not sure.

Either way I like nuts in my chocolate! What are your top 5?

6 06 2007
babycakes

ok..mine in no particual order would be…

Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
Kit Kat Peanut Butter
Time Out/Boost
Flyte
Munchies….i think 🙂
i also absoluty love sour starburst and cadbury snacks id put them in if they were chocolate 😀
whats funny is i hate nuts/peanut butter but i love it in choc! weird…:)
what made you decide to do this blog anyways? 😛

6 06 2007
Terry

Flyte? I had one of those yesterday, they’re terrible! Milky Ways are much better.

Aren’t Cadbury Snacks chocolate? I think I reviewed them awhile back, so I hope they are!

And I was just bored one night, and set the whole thing up, then just kept adding a review each night when I was bored, before I knew it I had people actually reading the thing and it just became a thing that I did.

6 06 2007
babycakes

mm yeah i like milkyway too but flytes are good 😛 yeah but i kinda put cadbury snacks under chocolate biscuit rather than bar if ya know what i mean 🙂 ah well i spose its a good pass time as i said earlier good eat excuse to eat chocolate and not feel guilty 😀 😀 im trying to find a website that reviews like flapjacks/cakes/biscuits like mcvities etc..so maybe you could do some sometime? 😀

6 06 2007
babycakes

…i still cant find the nutritional info on that bar errr lol! 😛

6 06 2007
Terry

I was actually considering doing that, but I wasn’t sure if it would become too expensive or whatnot. But if people want me to then I’ve got no qualms about it.

7 06 2007
babycakes

well i like things like the mcvities muffins,flapjacks biscuits etc.. and it would be nice to know what other people think 😀 so if you can 😛 thanks..lol

7 06 2007
Terry

8 06 2007
Terry

I haven’t but I’ve seen it in the local shop. Off the top of my head the other brands they have are…Galaxy, M&M’s, Terry’s Chocolate Orange…and maybe a Mars one?

Plus all the other random cakes they have there as well. A ton of stuff!

8 06 2007
babycakes

He put his eye to the hole. He just managed to spy some people sitting in deckchairs chanting, before a finger came out of nowhere and poked him in the eye. As he staggered back, the people started chanting, “Fourteen, fourteen, fourteen…”

My family all the time say that I am wasting my
time here at web, except I know I am getting experience daily by reading such pleasant articles or reviews.
