I am a big lover of American foods, may have something to do with me living there for a while! I really am a fan of Hershey's Chocolates, and it is the Hershey company that make us the wonderful Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.
Peanut Butter Cups are pretty much what they sound like. A thick cupcake shaped snack, with a creamy centre of peanut butter, coated in a thick, crunchy layer of Hershey's milk chocolate!
Peanut Butter Cups are some what like Marmite, in the way that you either love them or you hate them. Personally I love them (but I hate Marmite!) and I just can not get enough of them. They come in a bright orange packet, which has the Hershey and Reese's logo printed on the front and picture of one of the Peanut Butter Cups. The back has all the nutritional information on it, and some information about the company too.
Inside the packet you get three Peanut Butter Cups which are held in place and saved from being crushed by a thin, white cardboard sleeve. The Peanut Butter Cups are not huge, and one of them will fit happily in the centre of my palm. The first bite will give you a bit more chocolate than peanut butter, and you will get a satisfying crunch as you take that first bite!
You can instantly taste the thick, smooth, milk chocolate and you notice how creamy and tasty it is, and then the peanut butter hits your tastebuds. It really is great peanut butter, which a perfect texture that makes it crunchy and creamy all in one. There is a good, thick layer of peanut butter in the centre of the cups, and I find that it is the perfect amount in ratio with the chocolate.
I find it takes me about 3 bites to finish a peanut butter cup, and usually one is good enough to satisfy me for a little while, where as my partner will eat a whole 3 pack in one go! Being chocolate and peanut butter, there is quite a high amount of Fat and Calories in these little Peanut Butter Cups, and I do not eat them very often any more because of this fact.
There is actually quite a large selection when it comes to the Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. You can buy them in packs of 2, 3 or 4, and you can also get them in a single pack BIG CUP. Then you have the choice of minatures, which come wrapped, and even smaller minatures which come in a small bag, and are not wrapped. There is also the choice of sugar free ones, and dark chocolate too.
You can also get these in reverse cups (peanut butter on the outside!!) and in white chocolate. The main Peanut Butter Cups are sold in Morrisons, and in some sweet stores around the country. You can also buy them on Amazon, and on www.americansweets.co.uk.
If you live near Aldershot in Hampshire, there is a store there that stocks these, and many other American goodies :D A 3 pack of these usually costs around ú1.20 but this depends on where you buy them from. They may seem a little bit expensive but truly worth the price.
There isn't much in the way of healthy when it comes to this product, but the following is the nutrional information for a 2 pack of peanut butter cups:
