If America knows how to do one thing well, it's combining chocolate with peanut butter. It's only just caught on over here, but the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup is an American institution, and one that I've heard many Brits compliment over the years. I'm glad the trend is catching on, because now I can find things like this Reese's peanut butter chocolate bar, which was down to only £1.50 in Tesco. I love the cups, so the thought of having that magnified into a massive slab of chocolate was too good to resist.
There's not much to this, really. It's a big chocolate bar, filled with creamy Reese's peanut butter. Each piece is pretty massive, probably comparable in size to a single Reese's cup. But while I find that the cups tend to have a little too much peanut butter inside, the chocolate in this bar does a lot to remedy it. There's a thick outer casing on all sides, and while it's not the best chocolate, I've tasted, it does the job well. Besides, the peanut butter still wins out, with a creamy, nutty taste that's just delicious. The chocolate lends some lovely, sweet undertones, which is all well and good, but as with most Reese's products, there's just a little too much sweetness going on. Even after a couple of squares, it was quite sickly, the peanut butter especially being very filling. But I certainly enjoyed every moment of it.
This Reese's bar is a decadent, sweet, creamy nutty treat. It is perhaps a little too much for some people, and you may make yourself sick if you eat the whole bar in one go, but you'll certainly enjoy the ride.
My rating: 4/5
