Review: Reese's Spreads
So when the folks at Influenster.com sent me a VoxBox of Reese's Spreads to try out for free and review, I was pretty excited. I love chocolate, I love peanut butter...and I love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I'm old enough to remember when they first showed up at candy stores. Back in the day I ate quite a few of them, reveling in that perfect chocolately-peanut butter taste. Now that I'm older, they're still a treat.
But would a spread be equal to the flavor I've grown to love so much? I had to know, so I grabbed a spoon, opened the jar and dove in. And...YUMMMM!!! Perfect chocolate-peanut butter taste! It was as if I were eating one of those delicious treats. I was in chocolate-peanut butter heaven.
That wasn't all. Because it's a spread, I was able to try Reese's Spreads on several other food items. Apples, pears, crackers, and pretzels--all were slathered with chocolate-peanut butter and devoured. Reese's seemed to complement everything perfectly.
I had so much fun trying out Reese's Spreads, in fact, that the jar of delicious was gone before I knew it. I was sad until I spied Reese's Spreads sitting on a shelf in the peanut butter section of my local grocer. Naturally I had to purchase another jar.
For experimental purposes, of course.
