Todays review again comes courtesy of the team at CandyPirate who yet again provided me with another offering from the extensive Reese's range.
The Reese's Peanut Butter Fudge Egg came in a 34.0g one piece serving. Despite its thickness the egg did seem relatively small in size - I feel like it could have been made a little bigger. Despite its smaller size it still looked and smelt dreamy once cross sectioned...no second guesses what it smelt like...a deep roasted nut smell just literally left my mouth watering. The packaging was nicely presented and included a cardboard sleeve to ensure extra protection..what was lacking was the paper cup that you find with the standard Reese's range...of course this wasnt even really an issue but personally I just feel like its a nice touch.
Now anyone whos read any of my Reese's reviews before will be aware of my constant disappointment at the quality of the chocolate used in the range - in all honestly it really wasnt that much better here with the added fudge element. The chocolate as you can see above was proportioned pretty thickly, despite this though it still lacked a real standout flavour. The fudge taste wasnt all that evident apart from adding a slightly longer more sugary aftertaste, the chocolate still simply didnt do enough for me...its texture wasnt bad and it had a relatively smooth texture...its just its flavour was still little more than I can describe as milky tasting...it just lacked real flavour depth.
Overall as with every Reese's product its the same old story. The chocolate was largely disappointing - and here the fudge element was all but lost but for a slightly sugary fudge noted aftertaste...luckily the peanut butter element was as ever just delicious. It smelt divine, its texture combined both smooth and rough superbly and its taste was just absolutely sublime. Its rich, creamy , buttery, nutty goodness all round...and I just couldnt get enough of it...unfortunately I really didnt due to its rather small size lol! If you love the Reese's range this is another product you will get on with...no doubt there are better Reese's products out there but this is worth trying at least once.
