Reese's pieces w/ nuts

Dispensing right up front w/ the inherent weaknesses in this "new" product: 1. was first intro’d a YEAR ago (can you see the orange clearance price sticker? "was .49, now .34") 2. might seem similar to other Reesey* items covered here previously. To #1, the pipeline lag time is often long. #2, even if not brand new, these are still cool cuz they’re like a PB version of M&M peanuts. Good for those who feel like a nut & for health nuts who view a peanut in candy as some sort of nutritional salvation. A more recent, related product is the mega-M&M line, covered by other foodie blogs.

*Reeses Peanut Butter Cups named for man who created them in 1928

Yippee, I'm first! Err, I mean, isn't this just an excuse to sell the broken pieces?

I don't waer birkenstocks but I do understand the idea of a peanut in the candy making it seem good for you. Or maybe I just like M&M peanuts? Plain M&Ms are boring.

I'm not really a fan of nuts in general. Unless of course they are served with drinks, you know, like smokey almonds, or wasabi peas (which technically aren't nuts). I don't like them in my salads, or in my pizzas, or in my chocolate.

But they do at Fireside. Blasted Pine Nuts!

Speaking of Pizza, how far along is that "Red Brick Pizza" down on Beltline next to Freebirds? I trust you'll be the first one to report on it, TG?

Peanuts technically are not nuts, either. They, like peas, are a legume.

Wondered if you'd get around to doing this one, TG. Good work, even if you're a little late coming to the party.

[shaking head], so predictable.

Unfortunately, Mr. Cruise was -- yet again -- a day early with his nuts...

I, myself, prefer Smarties. And I eat the red ones last.

And, before you ask, I mean these Smarties

...not these Smarties

Mmmm, smarties. I think the orange ones taste orangy.

I do believe my nuts inspired this posting, as is often the case.

sorry to change the subject, but candy and csnned beverages are not passons of mine. interesting to me however: today someone very close to me brought home a package of frozen dwight yoakum chicken fingers. have in the past found george jones cat food at fiesta (with his photo on the bag) ... have several cookbooks by singers and other "celebrity cookbooks" in which singers (including that one who had an affair with burt reynolds)and musicians ar contributors. tg: yo're a music expert: do they have extasensitive palates?

They have lots of money and financial advisors with no sense at all.

music and food being two "pleasure centers", there seems to be lotsa crossover. aerosmith guitarist joe perry has a hot sauce. jimmy dean's sausage. dave matthews' (Blenheim Vineyards) wine. sammy hagar's tequila. jimmy buffet's margaritaville restaurant. kenny rogers' fast-food chicken chain! and conversely, chefs with a yen to be rock stars. ms.ery, surely you've read the fawning stories of dean fearing's rock band, made up entirely of chefs! i believe they got a Food Arts cover story a couple yrs ago. Dwight's "people" sent a whole box of his stuff to the News when i still worked there. i kept the dwight yoakum biscuits for a while in the freezer but never got around to eating them

ms.ery, i do hope you will provide a "review". which flavor did you get: Original, Sweet Barbecue, or Chili Cheese?

Don't forget my mixed nuts!

Tom Cruise won't let anyone stop thinking about his lousy nuts for even 15 seconds.

With such an obvious obsessive compulsive disorder, it is very clear that Tom would benefit from taking SSRI antidepressants.

It is quite obvious to me, as I am an expert in such matters, that you people need to come off your medications and chew on my supersalty premium nuts instead.

All proceeds benefit the L. Ron. Hubbard Orphanage, which consists of a small group of alien children displaced by hurricane Katrina. Katie and I keep them in our basement in a protective womb of magnetic protoplasm.
