Unwrapped and Over-waxed

A Bag of Unwrapped Reese's MinisI love chocolate and peanut butter, especially together. So naturally, I’m a huge fan of Reese’s cups. But the normal ones have too much peanut butter in the middle, and so in the middle of each cup, you get these bites of candy that just aren’t chocolatey enough. But the Mini cups are perfect — they’re smaller, so you eat them all at once, giving an excellent blend of chocolate to peanut butter.

The other day, I tried Reese’s Minis “Unwrapped”. They’re like a small version of the mini cups, except that they’re, well, not wrapped! They look like an awesome product — it’s still the right ratio of chocolate to peanut butter, and they’re WAY easier to eat. Sounds great, right?

Nope. They’re terrible. Hershey’s puts some kind of wax on the outside of each cup, and there’s enough of it so that all you taste is wax. It pretty much destroys the flavor of the whole thing. Until they find a better way to keep the cups fresh without a wrapper, I don’t recommend them.
