Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Eggs
It's been years since I last had Reese's Pieces, however when I saw this box of Reese's Pieces Eggs in Bargain Buys recently I thought I'd give them another try. These are much larger than Reese's Pieces so have a greater ratio of peanut butter filling to shell. They cost £1 per box, are gluten free and suitable for vegetarians.
They're a bit like Cadbury Mini Eggs in appearance but with more brightly-coloured shells.
They taste very yummy and are highly addictive! The peanut filling gets a better chance to shine here compared to regular Reese's Pieces - it's quite creamy, and almost like a peanut white chocolate rather than peanut butter. It's mild but it works with the crunchy shells perfectly.
Overall, I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed these even though I wasn't expecting to. They're absolutely full of sugar and good old-fashioned artificial colourings, but so addictive. If you have a Bargain Buys nearby you certainly can't go wrong with a box! I believe they may also be available in Poundworld.
