Candy Fiend Figures Out Which Reese's Has the Most Peanut Butter

While most of us waste our free time wondering why Snow never got another hit, Imgur user rust3d is spending his/hers on very important work. This noble phantom recently dedicated precious time and effort to figuring out which Reese's product contains the most peanut butter -- and apparently, the seasonal stuff is where it's at.

For this experiment, rust3d gathered Reese's in several shapes (egg, heart, pumpkin, cup) and sizes (large, snack, miniature, mini). Our scientists then cut each candy in half, measured it, and harvested its innards for peanut butter. The peanut butter was also weighed separately. After all the data was gathered, rust3d determined the percentage of PB per product. While the egg came very close to taking the title, the heart beat it by a hair (less than 1%). We've included shots of the champion below, but you've gotta see the whole photo set to appreciate this great undertaking.
