When chocolate and peanut butter come together for a next-level experience

Dec 8 2016, 3:13 pm

Reese Peanut Butter Cups are the sweet treat we always long for.

The rich chocolate shell covering the sweet peanuty goodness inside, which invariably sticks to its brown wrapper unless you put it in the fridge for five minutes (an actual life hack – try it out next time). The taste? Pure bliss.

It’s the chocolate that speaks most strongly to our younger years. A chocolate we would split among our two best friends as we shared our weekly allowance to purchase that one delicious package.

But then Reese’s Pieces came out, and we found ourselves craving something different.

These brightly coloured candies held the same appeal as the iconic chocolate and peanut butter cup, but there was something more. Maybe it was that you didn’t have to share them, or you could share them with more people. Or maybe it was that they were just so easy to pop in your mouth, and had a delightful crunch the Peanut Butter Cup could never match.

Now, Hershey has melded the two chocolate deities together into one sublime creation: The Reese Big Cup stuffed with Reese’s Pieces Candy.

Our favourite Peanut Butter Cup has gone king-size, and the inside is dotted with the crunchy candy Pieces.

For anyone who loves the sweet taste of chocolate, peanut butter, and crunchy candy, this treat is perfect. And thankfully, it’s arrived in time to grace the holiday stockings of candy lovers across North America. Eating this yummy new treat is like getting two at the same time – it’s a win-win.

The new chocolate was revealed in America first, and has finally made its way over to Canada. It’s now available in mass convenience stores across the country, and you can find out more on Twitter, by following the hashtag #Cupfusion, and Facebook.
