You just landed on a food review page featuring one of my guilty pleasures: peanut butter cups. Reese's has been satisfying fans with these cups since 1928, and no matter whether you're at a grocery store or at a gas station, you can't miss their trademarked orange packaging.
Being that this is the King Size, it features four peanut butter cups, instead of the usual two cups. The taste hasn't changed ever since (in a good way)—creamy peanut butter-y bliss encased in a crisp, not-too-sweet chocolate. The peanut butter part contains little bits of peanuts so chew well before downing the beauty (yeah, that was an odd way of putting it, but you know what I'm getting at). This snack is great for your work/school breaks, and/or as a side snack to your lunch.
Now that the weather is hot, you may purchase these and find all cups melting, thus ruining your sweet pleasures. Simple fix: put these in the fridge until the cups are fully solid again; That's all there is to it. My favorite? I like eating the cups when it's partially melted. Works best if you're too lazy to do some chewing.
Yeah, I'm aware of the nutritional information but it doesn't matter. If I participate in an eating contest featuring these cups on who can munch down the most, I might just do so. At least it's recreational, unlike going out and finding ways to get in trouble with the law (like most people tend to do anyway).
Cheer up, grab some cups.
