Remember Buncha Crunch? Buncha Crunch was one of the best things Ol' Man Nestlé ever did. Clearly this is Reese’s take on Buncha Crunch: mini peanut butter chips, rice puffs, and peanuts all covered in milk chocolate. Sounds great, but like in the Snack Mix, we’re dealing with some bad peanuts, and not enough puffed rice. The success in Buncha Crunch lies in the crunchiness of the rice, and Reese’s Cruncher just don’t give me enough of the crunch that I desire.
36. White Trees
A white chocolate product so much higher than the others? That’s right. When I first tried one of these little dudes, I was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t taste any of that nursty white chocolate flavor that I so strongly dislike, so I took to the package. Turns out these White Trees are not technically white chocolate at all, but rather white “crème”. It makes a world of difference, and though they aren’t as tasty as the classic chocolate and peanut butter duo, White Trees are not bad at all.
35. White Crème Hearts
Like trees. White trees. You're probably seeing a trend here.
34. 8-ounce Hearts
No, you didn’t misread that. Reese’s really makes an 8-ounce candy. Now look, I eat lots of garbage. As you can see, I literally do it for a living. That said, I really don’t know who this is for. A mound of chocolate and peanut butter bigger than your palm is no small undertaking. There’s probably a very small percentage of people that could actually take this thing down. So does that mean it’s for splitting? If so, it would take a minimum of two people to eat, but mostly likely three or four. Furthermore, if it is meant for splitting, there’s no easy way to do it. It’s not perforated or sectioned off, so you’ll need to grab a knife (because unless you’re Chuck Norris you’re not going to pull this apart with your hands) and slice it up, which creates a whirlwind of chocolate flakes and a cracked exterior.
None of this really matters as much as the other glaring problem, though, which is the ratio. This thing is absolutely overwhelmed by chocolate. The peanut butter is there in the middle, but only makes up about 30% of the flavor profile. At the end of the day, this thing is a gigantic chocolate heart with some peanut butter in the middle. Get it for the novelty if you must.
33. 5oz Hearts
The 5 ounce-ers are much more manageable than the 8 ounce-ers, that’s for sure. The ratio is a lot better too, with a much bigger portion of peanut butter: In fact they almost seemed to have used the exact same amount for both sizes, which goes to show how hard the 8 ounce is skimping. The issue, unfortunately, is that this is still way too big of a portion for any reasonable person. You may be able to finish this on your own, but you’re not going to be happy about it later.
32. Dark Miniature Cups
Here’s something I expected to love. I love dark chocolate. I love Reese’s Miniatures. However, this dark chocolate is a snoozefest. It’s very boring. The dark chocolate just doesn’t work the way milk chocolate does to create the magical alchemy demanded by Reese's finest.
31. Dark Peanut Butter Cups
More dark chocolate helps a bit, but it still can’t help the dark stuff rise to the top. The chocolate itself seems to ride a weird supernatural line between being boring yet far too rich. How did they achieve that? Even as I’m writing it, it doesn’t make sense.
This one’s for the chocolate lovers. Bells sort of taste like a Miniature Cup that had a bunch more chocolate packed around it to form the shape of a bell. As a result, we’re dealing with a chocolate overload and not nearly enough peanut butter.
