OT - Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Post by Ozchrissy » March 21st, 2013, 4:51 am

I went to Aldi today, who is a originally a German company I think, and I bought Reese's Peanut Butter Cups which is from the USA and now sitting in my lounge room in Bendigo Australia, nearly making myself sick eating them. But oh they are delicious. I may have started another addiction. :mutt:

Oh MY goodness Chrissy. nononono Enjoying chocolate and peanut butter what a way to get sick.
You know chocolate is a vegetable as it comes from a bean and beans are vegetables and we all know peanuts are good for you (unless you have an allergy) so more power to you for enjoying yourself. lmao4dx

Yep - I love the Easter one's too, I swear there is more peanut butter which to me makes them taste heavenly. The Peanut Butter Cup has been my favorite for a long, long time. I even sometimes get the peanut butter jar out and spread a little bit more peanut butter on the top of one...........HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

Alright, off to the store now. :mutt:

Oh I am glad I am not alone, I don't know how they will be with cholesterol, but I figure if you don't eat them all at once no harm can be done, and the enjoyment will outweigh any detrimental effects. :mutt:

I agree with you, I love Reese's! I like Erics comment that he sometimes even adds peanut butter on them, nothing like hiking up the calories!

Yes, never seen them anywhere before, but Aldi is good over here as they bring in stuff that is from overseas. So I do like shopping there as I can try new things, but this may be a problem as they are delicious, and there is nothing similar on the current Australian market.

They are BAD for you Chrissy. Please send all you can find to me and I will dispose of them for you. Just keeping your health in my mind. nononono

Grow up. Reeses's is simply cocaine in a chocolate form. Avoid at all costs. Stick with Peppermint Patties. Now that's a health food.

Chrissy, You also need to look for "Reese's Pieces"!
Also absolutely good for you. I wouldn't lie to you.

btw, I've never developed a taste for vegemite.

They also make mini-Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, about the size of a chocolate chip, which I have always wanted to try in a chocolate chip recipe in place of the chocolate chips. I've just never gotten around to it. Does anyone out there have a round tuit, I used to have one.
