Do you know the history of the Reese's® Peanut Butter Cup? It sounds strange, and maybe it's not true, but I found the story (a story) here. Here's the summary...
Reese Witherspoon was walking down some stairs eating a chocolate bar, and some guy named HB Reese was eating peanut butter straight from the jar. The chocolate slipped out of Reese Witherspoon's hands and landed in the peanut butter jar.
Then those famous words were muttered, "You got your chocolate in my peanut butter!" along with "You got your peanut butter on my chocolate!"
HB Reese tried and tried to market this delicious coincidence, but kept failing. He sold his idea to Hershey for $8, yes only $8.
Hershey went on to make what we know today as the Reese's® Peanut Butter Cups.
So, back to my question. How do you eat a Reese's® Peanut Butter Cup?
I like to keep them in the freezer. I take them out of the freezer a couple of minutes before I'm going to eat them. I then eat all the chocolate around the peanut butter first, followed by the top and then the bottom. I then eat the peanut butter and let it crumble in my mouth. YUMMY!!
I bought Halloween candy a couple of days ago and opened the Reese's® Peanut Butter Cups today. I probably won't be giving those out as I love them. I'll give out the icky skittles I bought. I like to hand out things I don't like so I'm not tempted to eat the leftovers. Is that selfish? Nah, most people love Skittles! It's not like I'm giving out that old Grandma, nasty candy with the pink and blue wrappers.
