It finally happened. The Hershey Company finally figured out that their beloved Reese’s peanut butter cups should have dark chocolate. Yipeeee! I remember years ago when I would whip up my own peanut butter and chocolate creations using either Nestle Tollhouse chips or Special Dark bars and Jif peanut butter. I was in heaven! So when I heard Reese’s was releasing a dark chocolate version of their peanut butter cups, I was elated and searched the stores every day. I thought I was on a wild goose chase because they didn’t seem to be in any stores. Weeks went by and a friend sent me a photo of the elusive cups…come to me!!
As you see, the deep, dark color of the chocolate gets you ready for a treat, but it is deceptive. The flavor is flat, close to non-existent and leaves you asking, “Really? I waited for this?”
As for the ingredients (as listed on the package): Semi-sweet chocolate (sugar; chocolate; cocoa butter; milk fat; soy lecithin; vanillin; artificial flavor; pgpr; emulsifier; milk); peanuts; sugar; dextrose; salt; tbhq (preservative).
We also did a comparison test of dark to milk…check out the results here.
