Reese’s: First a PB cup, Now a Spread

Reese's: First a PB Cup, now a spread

Move over Nutella, there’s a new player in town.

Reese's: First a PB Cup, now a spread

Reese’s has been rocking the peanut butter and chocolate world for almost a century. They then expanded into the cereal world, candy bar world, candy pieces world, ice cream, merchandise. All pretty successful, though admittedly, peanut butter and chocolate is something you just can’t go wrong with.

Now they’re expanding into the spreads market, in direct competition with Nutella and peanut butter. And at 95 calories per tablespoon, it’s a full 5 calories lighter than both.

“Reese’s Spreads offer an authentic Reese’s experience to fans who are looking for delicious snack options throughout the day,” says Daren Russ of The Hershey Company. “Since 1928, we have been delivering the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter. With the launch of Reese’s Spreads, we are honouring our great heritage and bringing consumers a new, but still perfect, way to enjoy the Reese’s brand.”

With the invent of this spread, that means you can have Reese’s on your toast. With jam. With your apples. In your smores. With a spoon. In your baking! The possibilities are endless. It could basically go wherever peanut butter or that hazelnut stuff would.

On November 5, 2014, Hershey’s let a bomb drop: They were releasing a spread for Reese’s. A short two days afterwards, they did just that. As of yesterday, Reese’s peanut butter and chocolate spread has hit stores in the U.S.A. So if you’re American, yes, this means you can get your hands on a jar of this too (sorry Canada + world).

The texture of the spread is familiarly grainy, just like the filling in a regular Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. In fact, people who have tried it say that it’s quite exactly like eating the chocolate. It’s now fully acceptable to eat a chocolate bar for breakfast. Thanks Hershey’s.
