Reese's Big Cup w NUTS



Reese’s Pieces*, eh. In fact, bleh to almost all in the recent parade of Reese’s spinoffs, from xtra choc to xtra PB, xtra-creamy to white choc. Even the original Reese's cups were NSG. So, singling out Reese’s Big Cup w/ Nuts is no mere tossing-another-log, nor is it just another desperation blog entry. How dare you. No, Big Cup w/ Nuts is special. ... i.e. really good, w/ a dialogue between the choc & peanuts (which are actually salted and some still whole).

*hershey's site sez there's a new reese's pieces w/ nuts too. have not seen, have low hopes

some nice links: desperate and how dare you especially. also liked the explanation of why salt makes melon tastes sweeter. assume salt works the same way on grapefruit, which is what we always used in my family. hate it when some coats a grapefruit half in gritty sugar.

was that peanut a grave marker? sure looked like it. i know what food/beverage item teresa would choose for her tombstone. how about the rest of you? think i would go for a martini and a cigarette.

How did we get on this rather morbid topic? But seeing as we're here, mine will probably be . . . hmmm, I'll have to get back to that. Right now, I'm thinking pizza, but that would just look retarted.

I've never been a fan of mixing chocolate with peanut/peanut butter. Peanut butter should be just ground peanuts with no sugar at all.
My headstone should be a Hershey's Kiss.

clairevoyant: have you tried my dark chocolate peanut butter cups? (and you know, profits from their sales go to a good cause.)

Paul,
after my first experience with a reese's cup, the thought of mixing choc & PB together seems worse than eating 50 hard boiled eggs at one time. (but you'd know all about that)

well, it is really very hard for someone so well-eaten as me to choose just one food, but i think i would have to go with some varietal meat such as sweetbreads, because i have always encouraged people to be more adventurous in their dining choices. (and beverages, too; i mean you shouldn't get stuck on just one coffee!)

does anyone remember the chocolate cups that were filled with a semi-marshmellow creme filling? valomilk or something like that; haven't seen one is years, but i really liked them when i was a kid. you would bite into one side, then you could suck out all the filling.

how about mexican mole sauce? it has both nuts and chocolate in it.

good try, smores, but mallomars are those cookies with the graham cracker base topped by marshmallow and coated in chocolate.

however, your response did prod me into doing what i should have done before posting the item. i went to google and valomilk was indeed the name of the chocolate cups. there is a web site, valomilk.com. they are made by a small kansas company and don't get shelf space in stores, but the site says you can find them at cracker barrel restaurants (which i have never visited).

Jess, how are mallomars different from Moonpies (or as I still call them "Wagon Wheels")?

Dean, they're from See's, the single-best argument for why american chocolate has the potential to be FAR superior to that oily euro-UK crap (that includes cadbury's, so shush). unfortunately the closest store is in houston. however, once thanksgiving arrives, see's sets up holiday kiosks at most of the major malls incl. galleria, northpark etc. i highly recommend!

TG: Have you tried see's Red Hot Swamp Goo?

 
At August 29, 2005 12:41 PM, Blogger Cybele said...

Jess, as Valomilks can be so hard to find, you also might want to try a Cup-O-Gold which isn't quite the same but I find equally good.

TG - I'm a huge fan of See's scotchmallow, it's really the only marshmallow I like. I think it's the touch of honey that sells it for me.

Oh, if you're looking for the Reese's Pieces with Peanuts - I found them at both 7-11 (in a little bag) and at Target (in a movie-sized box). I prefer them to the regular Reese's Pieces and I wonder what took them so long to come up with them.

I'm still looking for the Hershey Mocha Almond though... anyone have any luck on that one?

If you want anything from See's I can send it to you at cost, plus $50 for shipping and handling.

But I was happy to see only ms.ery noticed the links and liked them. Just shows the rest of the group has taste. Everyone got on intelligent themes, like peanut butter, chocolate, and grave stones.

ON topic, cocolate and peanut butter go mahvelously together. And if I see these in a store I might just buy a gross. The fudge ones aren't that good. In fact none of them are but the original, but this one sounds yummy.
