Everywhere you look around in the world of technology, things are getting smaller and more powerful! Smaller can truly be better and, as such, Reese Peanut Butter Cups have taken on the “smaller is better” philosophy in the launch of the Reese Minis!

I was intrigued by the idea of Reese Minis because I wanted to see if a smaller version of Reese Peanut Butter Cups (which I LOVE!) would truly be as good! And, because I am trying to lose weight, I wanted to see if the Reese Minis would allow me to savour the flavour of a Reese Peanut Cup while still trying to watch my diet!
When the Reese Minis, arrived, I was amazed by their tiny size! They are the smallest version of Reese Peanut Butter Cups and are only slightly bigger than a dime! I toyed with the idea of baking with them (I thought the idea of a Reese Mini brownie was amazing!) but I really am a purist at heart so I decided to eat them on their own.
I was really surprised when I tried the Reese Minis. I was sure that I was going to have to eat the whole bag in order to get the same feeling of chocolate and peanut butter goodness that I receive when I eat Reese Peanut Butter Cups. I learned, however, that these Minis are packed with flavour! When the craving for chocolate and peanut butter hits, I can eat 2 or 3 Minis and I feel like I’ve eaten a trio of Peanut Butter Cups! I was really impressed by the fact that there is so much peanut butter in the Minis but there is still the great chocolate and peanut butter balance that I adore!
I’m thrilled to say that Reese Minis exceeded by expectations and that they are one of my new favourite snacks! I know I can eat just a few, get the flavours that I love and then keep them until the next craving hits! I’m excited that I can enjoy a treat that I love and still stay true to my diet. Thank you Hershey Canada!!!
