Yet another variation of the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups this time in the form of the 'Big Cup'.
The 'Big Cup' is simply just a big version of the original peanut butter cup and is pretty much the equivalent of two standard cups rolled into one.
Out the package it looked huge - the package says 'crammed full of peanut butter'...this is not misleading - when I split it in half the peanut smell just filled the room and I was amazed at the sheer volume of the peanut butter center.
Though im not 100% sure of the actual proportioning im pretty sure that the peanut butter to chocolate ratio is far higher in this big cup than the standards - personally I dont think this is such a bad thing. Anyones who read my reviews on Reese's products will know that I love the peanut butter in their products but I generally feel the chocolate used is bland and poor....well its a similar story here the chocolate is overly flavourless but this is more than made up for by the sheer delightful smooth nutty creamyness of the peanut butter - its a flavour to savour.
Overall I have to say I would prefer having one of these 'Big Cups' to a standard Reese's two pack. For a start its all a bit less fidly but I guess the real clincher is the vast quantity of peanut butter you get in this format - it means that the sub standard chocolate is really just less of an issue and you get more of the creamy nutty goodness. As far as im aware these are quite freely avalible so if you see one around I would reccomend you give it a try especially if your a Reese's fan.
