This Brand New Reese’s Cup Tastes Just Like a Fluffernutter
Marshmallow + peanut butter = match made in heaven.
Sure, you may still be gnawing on the chocolate Santa you got in your stocking or unwrapping the last of your Hanukkah gelt — but it’s not too soon to start thinking about your next opportunity to celebrate a holiday in choco-riffic style. Hershey’s is right there with you.
The chocolate maker has revealed its full lineup of new and returning goodies for Valentine’s Day and Easter 2021. We got an advance taste and, amidst the robust lineup, one Easter candy stood out: the Reese’s Mallow-Top Peanut Butter Cups. Available nationwide, for a limited time, the tri-level treat is officially described as “a marshmallow-flavored creme on top of the milk chocolate and peanut butter center you love;” we describe it as, basically, a fluffernutter in a bite.
Other new nationally available, limited-time Easter offerings include Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Pip Bunny (with some serious break-apart ears), Ice Breakers Strawberry Lemonade Duckling in a package designed to look like a duck and an interactive Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Build-A-Bunny.
If you’re looking for old Easter faves, you’ll be pleased to know Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, Kit Kat Lemon Crisp, Reese’s Peanut Butter Unboxed Bunny, Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Unboxed Bunny, Reese’s Pieces Shake N’ Break and Cadbury Creme Egg will be returning as well.
Hershey’s is taking steps to ensure Valentine’s Day 2021 will be no less sweet. Our favorite new release for the February holiday is the Reese’s Big Box O’ Love ($9.99), which offers 20 classic peanut butter cups in an attractive gift box with XOXO spelled out in Reese’s cups. Cute — and for peanut-butter-cup fans, probably better than bonbons.
The other new Valentine’s Day releases — Hershey’s Kisses Meltaway Roses, Reese’s Peanut Butter Rose, Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bear and Hershey’s Hugs & Kisses Heart Box — and returning favorites — Hershey’s Kisses Lava Cake, Reese’s Peanut Butter Hearts and Kit Kat Raspberry Creme — round out Hershey’s holiday collection.
