Candy Confidential: First Taste Review Of The Mythical Reese's Cups Stuffed With Reese's Pieces

A public service for li.st.
  1. Ever since the recent "Top 5: Candy" tidal wave, and the discovery of the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups stuffed with Reese's Pieces, I've had my eye out for them.
    List is here: Top 5: Candy - many thanks to @mbmurray23 for bringing this to my attention.
  2. And on my recent trip to Atlanta and Minneapolis, I stumbled across these in a Holiday gas station in Eden Prairie, MN.
    🎉
  3. So let's get down to it.
  4. First, the regular.
    A little smashed, but the outer chocolate shell was not breached. Secure in my knowledge that the taste integrity was needed not compromised, I took the first bite.
  5. The first bite is small.
    Full disclosure - regular Reese's cups don't really do it for me like the Big Cups do, due to the inferior chocolate/peanut butter ratio. With the Reese's Pieces added, would it surpass the regular cups in the stack ranking? You'll have to wait and see (or scroll down, whatever). I expected there to be larger chunks of Pieces, but was disappointed. It just felt like shell mixed in, and a lesser version of the traditional Reese's peanut butter. 😬
  6. Next up, the Big Cup.
    Perfectly round and pure out of the package, I'll admit I got a few butterflies before diving in. Would this virginal bite exceed the previous experience? Were my taste buds and expectations about to be destroyed?
  7. First bite in....
    Good lord, there's whole Reese's Pieces in here!! My mouth explodes in joy, and I use my hands to steady myself before what may have been a taste blackout. So glad I was sitting down!
  8. So here we have a new power structure in the Reese's world:
