Branching out from the peanut butter cups Hershey’s has stepped foot into new realms with Reese’s Rounds. I have seen mixed feelings about these but that isn’t going to stop me from trying them myself.
I found this 8 pack of chocolate covered biscuits in Waitrose for an okay price of £1.50. The biscuits sat in a segregated black tray which certainly reduced the risk of any unnecessary breakages. Huzzah.
Crunchy biscuits with a peanut butter filling and covered in milk chocolate. Per biscuit: 96 kcal, 3.2g sat fat, 5.2g sugar, 2g protein.
These were certainly thick round biscuits. The biscuit itself was quite short, dry and crumbly with not a lot of taste. The peanut butter filling was the spread rather than the filling we love in the cups, which wasn’t a bad thing by any means, but there just wasn’t enough of it to compete with the biscuit underneath. Despite the need for more filling the subtle synthetic peanut butter flavour came through and balanced with the thin coating of milk chocolate which seemed slightly bitter in comparison to the usual chocolate used.
Let’s not write these Reese’s Rounds off because overall they aren’t horrendous. They aren’t a patch on the PB cups for the pure fact the filling just doest seem right and there isn’t enough of it. My bug-bear of the spread is that it tastes chemically synthetic and doesnt have that peanutty texture or taste, and this is a big no no. Nonetheless one to try if you happen to be offered one but not one to rush out and buy.

These look a little like the Peanut Butter Patty Girl Scout Cookies. Nice review! its good to know what kind of peanut butter it is – creamy or the denser “Reeses” style. Been seeing biscuits – or cookies here in the US! : ) – pop up in a lot of candy lately. Hershey’s just launched a line of “cookie chocolate bars”. This looks to be in line with that trend. Thanks again for the review. I’m going to heed your advice – if offered, I’ll glady try it. But I’ll save my $$ and calories for a sure thing!
