Candy Review: Reese’s Elvis Cup with Peanut Butter and Banana Creme

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Chocolate Candy,Limited Edition Candy,New Candy

Reeses Elvis cup
We first mentioned the “Elvis Cup” about six months ago and it made a small splash in the internet candy world at the time. The new Reese’s are set to release to the world next month and we received a shipment of them to give our readers a sneak peek at what to expect.

The Elvis Cup is a Reese’s cup with an additional layer of banana creme below the peanut butter. The banana tastes just like they put a real banana slice in there – they absolutely nailed the taste of a banana. Banana flakes are listed on the wrapper so the taste is real bananas.

Elvis Cup bite I am not a big fan of bananas in general (except banana Runts), so I really didn’t think I’d like these much. They definitely aren’t my favorite, but they are pretty good, even with the banana flavor. I can see a lot of people that like banana really enjoying these. The mixture of chocolate, banana, and peanut butter is not one I would think would mix well, but it actually does.

Reese’s have really taken the “Limited Edition” title to a new level as these packages are labeled “Collector Edition”. “Hawaiian” Elvis is on the “King” size packs, regular size has two Elvis images – young Elvis and another “mature” Elvis, and the miniature packs have young Elvis in black with a guitar. Collectible? Why, yes – and tasty too!

The Elvis Reese’s Cups should be available on store shelves sometime in July in mini, standard, and “King” size. get them while you can – whether you are a fan of Elvis or just love the taste of bananas and peanut butter. If you want to enjoy them before they hit stores, check out the collectible Elvis Cup Tin at Hershey’s Gifts.

Hershey Announces “Elvis Cup” for July 2007

Hershey's Elvis Cup

Recently, Hershey’s announced the “Elvis Cup”, a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup that includes a layer of Banana Creme. You may or may not know (if say, you’re blind), but Elvis loved to eat. One of his favorite foods was fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, thus the inspiration for the new Reese’s cup. Hershey’s just added some chocolate and took away the fried aspect (though I’m sure a local county fair can help you with the fried aspect.)

This “limited edition” candy is being made in honor of the 30th Anniversary of The King’s passing. The candy will be on your shelves sometime in July ’07, while Elvis’ actual date of death is August 16th. The candy, which will come in mini, standard and “king size”, will also include an instant win contest for a trip for two to Graceland.
