REVIEW: Reese’s Stuffed with Crunchy Cookie
Alright, let’s play a game I like to call: “I’m Bored and I’m Fat.”
Here’s what I want you all to do: identify your Top 2 junk foods. Don’t think about it too much – just whatever comes to mind first. Now I want you to stuff the first thing with the second thing. Practicality doesn’t matter; just stuff it in there. What did you come up with? Please leave your creations in the comments and I will review all of them.
Continue using your imagination and imagine that 100 people have ever visited this website in our history. I’m willing to bet at least 5% of the made-up audience would have developed this exact product:
Reese’s Stuffed with Crunchy Cookie! For the second year in a row, Reese’s is stuffing something we love with something else that we love. Last year it was Pregnant Reese’s wherein a Reese’s Cup was stuffed with little Reese’s Pieces babies. Reese’s Stuffed with Pieces caused the Internet to explode harder than the Reese’s Stuffed with Pop Rocks will explode when they inevitably debut next year. But for now? We’ve got Reese’s Stuffed with Oreo crumbs. Gotta figure that creme is next in line.
Here’s how I see it all playing out:
2017: Reese’s Stuffed with Crunchy Cookie
2018: Reese’s Stuffed with Popping Candy
2019: Reese’s Stuffed with Oreo Creme
2020: Reese’s Stuffed with Ricotta & Mozzarella (Flavor of Italy)
2021: Reese’s Stuffed with Turkey & Stuffing (Thanksgiving Edition)
Reese’s Stuffed with Crunchy Cookie comes in normal size too, but I went with the Big Cup because I’m not some kind of idiot.
If you’ve already had a regular Reese’s Cup, congratulations. You’re officially a member of the human populace and you can write 90% of this review yourself. Rather than waste your time telling you how good a Reese’s Cup is, here’s a cute picture of a squirrel eating a Reese’s cup:
Hang tight, Squirrel. Reese’s Stuffed with Acorns can’t be far behind.
Reese’s Stuffed with Crunchy Cookie contains quite a bit more crunchy cookie than I was expecting, and that is a great thing for a few reasons. The most obvious improvement comes on texture. The chocolate cookie bits have a noticeable grit, different than the shards of Reese’s Pieces shell in the Reese’s Stuffed with Pieces. This crunch is particularly enjoyable in the Big Cup format to break up that glorious mountain of peanut butter.
The second improvement is more minimal, but it has to do with flavor. The crunchy cookie pieces are cocoa-based and do cut the high sugar content in the peanut butter and milk chocolate, to the maximum extent that small pieces can. I noticed that the overall bite finished slightly less sweet and slightly more chocolatey than a normal Reese’s – something my teeth and taste buds can both appreciate. Just remember that a Reese’s Cup is already plenty chocolatey from the milk chocolate exterior, so these chocolate cookie bits weren’t called upon to make a massive transformation. The new texture is what shines most.
For my money, Reese’s Stuffed with Crunchy Cookie is an improvement on Reese’s Stuffed with Pieces. I think the Reese’s Crunchy Big Cup with peanuts edges this if you love peanuts like I do, but this is about as good it gets until Reese’s Stuffed with Cocaine arrives.
