Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are amazing, there’s no question about it. Who doesn’t have happy childhood memories of indulging in rich, peanutty treats at Halloween, birthday parties, or pressed into Christmas cookies? Yet most would say that Reese’s doesn’t reach its apogee of peanut-butter-goodliness but once a year; hold onto yourselves, Candy Addicts, for Reese’s Egg season is upon us.
That’s right. When the rest of the world watches for blossoming flowers and baby ducks, true Candy Addicts know Spring has arrived when the supermarkets stock a certain type of egg. An egg that promises sheer joy and decadence, all for under a dollar.
What is it about the Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg that makes it so vastly superior over other incarnations of Reese’s cups? It could be that it hits just the perfect peanut-butter-to-chocolate ratio. As we covered a few months ago, some scientists claim that more chocolate is better; however, true Reese’s devotees usually agree that the salty, rich peanut butter ought to be the dominant flavor.
Perhaps it’s the shape of the egg. The inviting soft curves are somehow more appealing than the standard, sharp-edged sides. Doesn’t it always seem like little points of the cup always crumble off or stick to the paper? Not the egg – it just slides off that little tray and sighs its way into your mouth.
Some people explain Reese’s Eggs’ irresistibility with the freshness factor. Remember how we tried some of those Fresh From the Factory Reese’s Cups? Are you dying to try a fresh Reese’s, but don’t want to shell out twenty-six bucks for the privilege? Well, how long ago do you think those Eggs were produced? We know they can’t have been made more than a couple of weeks ago (it wasn’t too long ago they were producing Valentine’s hearts, remember).
But really, the reason is irrelevant. The fact is, Reese’s Eggs are magical, and one of the most Candy Addictive pleasures of Spring. As you can see, we honor the Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg with the CandyAddict.com Awesomely Addictive Candy Award. You just try to get enough Reese’s Eggs this season, and you’ll get what we mean.
