One of the nice things about working an office job is that people will put out food and treats that they can’t/don’t want to eat for other people to take. The motherload usually comes right after Halloween or Easter… and you can’t take 2 steps without someone throwing candy at you. I’m guessing that my co-worker’s kids gorge themselves with candy and throw up in their cars… prompting the parent to confiscate said candy and bring it in to work. Today (yes, in early July) I found a Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg and a few other random Easter candies sitting downstairs in the “Community Food Hub” area on the kitchenette counter. I’m still baffled as to why there’s still Easter candy floating around… but whatever. I took the Reese’s PB Eggs and went back to my desk.
I’ve had plenty of these things, but never think to review them. Folks, this is the Ultimate Motherfucker version of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. My biggest complaint with the peanut butter cups is that they always felt like they could be thicker, and that they go really quick. They really fuck with your mind because they’re super delicious, but you always want more of them. But the Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg is the resolution to this problem. It’s like a big ol’ thick peanut butter cup. It’s jam packed with that awesome Reese’s peanut butter that we all know and love, and the chocolate outside is much thicker than the peanut butter cup. It’s super rich and your teeth can certainly feel it… but that’s the kind of shit we love. The only thing I would change about these (like just about everything else) is to not have them individually wrapped, but offer them in a family-sized bag that’s full to the brim so you can eat them like chips. I’m not sure if these are available year round, but they should be… and they need to adopt my name of Reese’s Ultimate Motherfucker Eggs. If you like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, this is the quantum leap forward to peanut butter/chocolate bliss.
