As much as I enjoy Easter candy, even the newer ones don’t really surprise me like they used to when I was a kid. Perhaps I’ve just become a bit jaded, as the “limited edition” this and “New!!!” that don’t seem nearly as special or new as they should. I will admit that I was surprised, however, when I first bit into one of the Reeses Pieces Eggs in my basket of Easter goodies this morning.
The candy eggs were smooth and shiny, with a thicker “shell” than some of the other candy-coated eggs out there. I expected to find chocolate and peanut butter inside, as the eggs were fairly large and seemed to have room for more than one filling. The surprising part was that they only contained peanut butter.
The crunchy shell and the melt-in-your-mouth filling contrasted well, but these tasted especially good when I paired them with a small piece of plain chocolate, rather than just eating them on their own. I don’t think that I would have gone out of my way before Easter to pick these up, but that being said, I would certainly think about picking up a package if they’re out at a post-Easter sale.
