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 [...]
Ah, Snickers: the old standby. It’s not the most exciting candy bar in the store, but it’s always there when you need it, and it’s always tasty. I like Snickers. I also like peanut butter. So, is this two great tastes that taste great together? Uh… kind of?

There’s something about the creamy sweetness of milk chocolate combined with the nutty richness of peanut butter that make them perfect bedfellows. So it’s a bit odd to note that if you want that particular combination, the Reese line of products are pretty [...]
