Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkin Review

I've been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins in stores this Halloween; I've never had a chance to try them before and I do love a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, so I reasoned they must be extra special in a Pumpkin shape...right??

It's a potato! No...it's a bat!
Well I couldn't have been more wronger than wrong! What greeted me upon ripping off the wrapper of this particular Reese's Pumpkin was this...lump/potato/blob that looks nothing like any pumpkin I've ever seen before. It's ridiculous! "Surely Reese's are having a laugh?", I thought...

Thankfully the peanut butter filling tasted the same as the stuff in a regular Peanut Butter Cup, albeit in a slightly thicker ratio. The chocolate as always was super sweet, but complimented the filling perfectly.

Overall, what can I say...my Reese's Pumpkin tasted the part but it sure as heck didn't look it. I'm thinking that perhaps I was unlucky and got a duff one...has anyone else had one that looks as bad as this? Let me know in the comments!

  4. Bought one of them today (Lancashire. England.) 1st time trying an American brand. It's really the 1st time I've not finished a sweet(candy). Odd texture, odd taste. Does all USA chocolate taste like this?. 1 out of 10. Ugh.
