Product Review: Reese's Spreads, Peanut Butter Chocolate Deliciousness


Reese's Spreads - like a peanut butter cup in a jar!  enjoytheviewblog.com

I recently received a jar of Reese's Spreads from Influenster. PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE, folks. Those of you who know me personally or who follow me on Instagram know that one of my greatest weaknesses favorite things is Reese's peanut butter eggs/pumpkins/Christmas trees. I like the regular peanut butter cups, but the specialty shapes are creamier (IMO) and I have a serious addiction love them. Unfortunately, I also have insulin resistance, so I really have to fight my cravings for them. So when I got this jar in the mail, I knew it was going to go one of two ways. I was either going to hate it because they messed with one of my favorite things or it was going to be divine.

Well, I didn't hate it.

We were supposed to "create" pairings with it. Pairings with fruit, cookies, breads, and whatever. Make up new creations. I wonder if a spoon counts as a pairing?

CONFESSION: I ate the entire jar with a spoon in just a few days.

I went out and bought a second jar, with every intention of using it to make some creative pairings. Does using different types of spoons count as creative?

I decided to just go ahead and do my review. Because obviously, I'm never going to get beyond eating it with a spoon.

Reese's Spreads tastes like someone took a bunch of Reese's Easter eggs, put them in the blender, and made them into a jar of peanut butter chocolate heaven for your taste buds. I'm craving some just talking about it.

It smells divine - just like a Reese's peanut butter cup. It's creamy - perfect for scooping out of the jar with a spoon (or a knife, if you're so inclined). It's easily licked off of the spoon - and spreads easily with a knife (because apparently some people have more willpower than me). It also travels well. I took mine on a little road trip and it was perfect for a snack in the car. I just scooped out a spoonful (okay, maybe two) and no mess, no fuss. Just a lot of talking myself out of a third spoonful.

In case you can't tell, I really like it. I recommend it if you like peanut butter and chocolate. If you're thinking of buying me a gift and don't know what to get, this would be a lovely idea.
