Reese Fudge

Reese Fudge

I don’t think I’ve ever had a variety of Reese Peanut Butter Cups that I’ve outright disliked. And there have definitely been a lot of them. There’s something about that oddly crumbly peanut butter combined with chocolate that I just can’t resist.

Which is to say that I definitely enjoyed Reese Fudge, but at the same time, it’s one of the weaker Reese varieties that I’ve had.

The first thing that I noticed is that these cups are even greasier than standard Reese Peanut Butter Cups, which are already fairly greasy. After I photographed these, they actually left a grease stain on the piece of paper I had them on (!), which has never happened before, and which is a little bit disturbing, quite frankly.

The chocolate fudge coating, which is softer than usual, definitely has that distinctively sweet taste that you associate with fudge, with a muted chocolately flavour. The peanut butter is just good ol’ Reese peanut butter, so no surprises there.

Basically, this is just a sweeter, softer, slightly less chocolately version of standard Reese Peanut Butter Cups. It’s not bad (because, like I said, it’s hard to go wrong with the Reese formula), but I really don’t see any situation in which I’d want to eat these instead of the original version.

If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “I like Reese Peanut Butter Cups – but couldn’t they be sweeter?” then these might just be the candy for you.
