THE BIG KAHUNA
|Look out teeth, look out gums, screw the blood sugar, here it comes.
There's a new offering in the candy aisle. Sort of. Its made by Reese's and as you can imagine it's a take-off of the world-famous Peanut Butter Cup.
Some of these takeoffs work well. Reese's Pieces, White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, Reese's Sticks. Others not so good, usually the candy bars I don't ever see anyone getting.
So today, I am going to take one for the team and try out the Peanut Butter Lovers PBC as well as the Ultimate Peanut Butter Lovers PBC.
I'm unsure of Reese's strategy here. To be honest I can only find them in one convenience store (WAWA - but that thing is a monster) but haven't seen it anywhere else.
I'm not sure if this is a 'limited time' promotional item or if it's here to stay and become part of the 'Reese's Lineup'. Possibly part of a nation-wide rollout and WAWA is the first chain locally with it. But WAWA here is a monstrosity. Bigger than everything else combined.
Packaging: Typical Reese's packaging and look. Displayed in a display that says GET THEM BEFORE THEY ARE GONE. Hopefully they aren't going out of business any time soon. Available King Size only (both) and $2.19 for 4 PBC.
Stats: 4 PBC in the package. Each PBC represents 105 calories and 9 grams of carbs. My God, are they trying to kill us?
Appearance: The Peanut Butter Lover's PBC has a an outer shell that is 2/3 chocolate with the very top 1/3 being a yellow top. I decided it's a lightly flavored peanut butter 'candy shell'.
The Ultimate Peanut Butter Lover's PBC, has the light-peanut butter candy shell from top to bottom encasing the peanut butter inside.
Inside. My God. Same peanut butter as always. But it's perfect. NAILED~!
Flavor-taste: I tried a regular old PNB next to both the "Peanut Butter Lovers' PBC and the 'Ultimate Peanut Butter' PBC and .................the new Peanut Butter Cups are BETTER. Yes you read that right. These new ones are BETTER.
Ambiance': Felt amazing afterwards. No need to call an ambiance. Seriously I ate 2 'Peanut Butters Lovers' and downed the whole package of the 'Ultimate Peanut Butter' and I feel great.
Overall: Fantastic. Slight edge to the 'Ultimate Peanut Butter' PBC. Thumbs up. 5 stars. *****
