Reese’s Whipps January 26, 2008

Reese's WhippsHave you tried Reese’s Whipps yet? They’re like 3 Musketeers, but with a peanut butter-flavored whip in the center. Separating the whip from a milk chocolate exterior is a thin layer of peanut butter candy. The overall peanut butter flavor isn’t as pronounced as in a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, but it’s noticeable nonetheless.

Reese’s Whipps are also similar to 3 Musketeers in that they have “40% less fat than the leading chocolate candy. ” (Mars claims 3 Musketeers have “45% less fat than [the] average of the leading chocolate brands.”) To make up for the fat, Hershey’s apparently decided to increase the sugar content, as Reese’s Whipps are awfully sweet.

Personally, I think I’d go for a 3 Musketeers if I was in the mood for whipped chocolate, and a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or ReeseSticks if I was in the mood for peanut butter and chocolate. If you really want both, though, perhaps Reese’s Whipps will work for you.

    yeah this candy bar is less than satisfying it tastes something the cat dragged in. It is not sweet enough and the bum by the pay phone said it was awful too. Do yourself a favor and don’t buy this catastrophe of a candy bar.

    Sincerely Joey Holmes
