This review is for the fairly new product, Reese’s Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cup. I recently tried this for the first time and must say that I was very impressed with the product.
I’ve always loved the Reese’s peanut butter cup candies, and one of the things I learned a long time ago was that a Reese’s candy cup was at its best when chilled in the freezer. Something about that just makes it incredibly awesome. That’s why I decided to buy this ice cream dessert in the first place, because I wanted to see if that awesome chilled peanut butter taste translated over to ice cream.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cup is sold in a package of six 3.3 fl. oz. bars. Bar doesn’t feel like a correct word since the shape of the ice cream unit is round, just like the candy cups are. Each cup is individually wrapped in a white cover. I like that the cover doesn’t adhere to the ice cream bar like some plastic ones do. It’s a nice fit, secure, and opens somewhat easily. Each ice cream cup is 280 calories.
The big thing for me is the taste. It’s very true to what Reese’s is known for, a mix of peanut butter and chocolate. The package describes this as “peanut butter ice cream with a Reese’s peanut butter swirl dipped in a milk chocolate flavored coating.” Translated that means one thing: yummy.
Each bite was a delightful combination of peanut butter and milk chocolate, which I love, and with that chilled (or frozen) quality to them, the bars really hit the spot.
The bars are big enough that I also felt satisfied. These days some bars are so small that three or four bits later, you’re done and wanting another one. These are quite filling and while sometimes I want more just because I’m so happy with the taste, the truth is that it’s a good dessert and you only need one to be happy with it.
The look and texture of the bars are good, too. They actually had ridges just like the candy treats.
I’ll be buying this product again.
