I haven’t reviewed a Reese’s product for a while so thought it was about time I did. I like the Reese’s brand- it is quite far removed from what we have available in the UK which gives it a little bit of a novelty value. How is it different to our chocolate? Well, obviously all of the peanut butter for a start. Whereas we English are occasionally thrown a limited edition bar with a bit of P.B, Americans get an entire brand dedicated to the stuff. This makes me envious.

I never know quite what to think about Reese’s peanut butter stuff. Sometimes it is really enjoyable, but it can be unpleasantly greasy and overly sweet too. There isn’t much consistency from Hershey across the Reese’s product range, meaning that every bar A)has the potential to be great and B) has the potential to be god awful. Which is exciting in a way! Today, I’ve got the white chocolate version of their famous peanut butter cups.
I love winning stuff. I don’t want to bombard you with old sayings and clichés, but I was raised with that whole ‘honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay’ message. However, as you grow up, you realise more and more that ‘money won is sweeter than money earned’. Anyway, I digress- the reason I mention winning stuff is because today’s review is of a product that I won via twitter. I hate the twitter craze of ‘Retweet to enter our competition’ but, suspiciously after winning exactly that type of competition… I’ve suddenly become more tolerant of it!
I picked these up from Cyber Candy’s Covent Garden store last week. Whoppers are an American candy very similar to Maltesers- a malt middle surrounded in milk chocolate. These are the Reese’s peanut butter variety- so these Reese’s Whoppers from Hershey’s were a malt middle with a coating of what was described on the box as ‘peanut butter flavoured’ covering.
