Reese's Peanut Butter Egg

Happy Easter!

One of the things I generally try to avoid reviewing on this site are strictly morphological variations on products.  There are plenty of seasonal and holiday versions of our favorite foods which change their shape and color, but not the way they taste.  Technically, Reese's Peanut Butter Egg falls into the category, but this time it's different.

The Egg is simply a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup that is shaped like half an egg (bisected longitudinally).

Firstly, there's no paper wrapper stuck to the candy, so it's easier to eat.  Secondly, the shape of the Egg is different the Cup, and with each bite you will notice that it's a bit softer than a normal Reese's treat.  Thirdly and most importantly, this Egg shape offers a different chocolate-to-peanut butter ratio... specifically speaking, the amount of chocolate has lessened.  Somehow, this makes the Reese's Egg much better than the Reese's cup.  The Egg has achieved a more perfect ratio that elevates this snack more than you would think.  If you don't believe me, try it for yourself.  Thank god we get these every year!

Reese's Peanut Butter Egg: (Outstanding)

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup(for comparison): (Great)

Acquired: supermarket


  1. I agree! I think the Reese's Egg is the best of the Reese's products - and Reese's in general is probably my favorite candy (big cups, little cups, pieces, etc.)

  2. Another variation of the Reese's Egg is the Christmas Reese's Tree. Very similar to the Egg with the conditions you described.
