    Ok we all like peanut butte and we all like chocolate. That makes the Reese's peanut butter cup the greatest thing in the world.

    Now I love regular size peanut butter cups (RPBC). But I am not a big fan of the small bite size ones. I think it is due to one thing. The ratio of peanut butter to chocolate. Yes my friends the small ones taste different than the regular size ones and the big cup ones aren't as good either nor is the egg, pumpkin or any other RPBC. The RPBC is the best when it is the standard size that comes in a 2 or 4 back. This my friends is directly related to the proportions of the peanut butter to chocolate, the best over all ratio is the regular size RPBC. With the small ones you don't get enough PB to chocolate and with the eggs and other larges ones you get to much pb to chocolate.

    Am I wrong in my thinking on this one or am I spot on? I think I am spot on.

    I would like to see the chunky RPBC brought back because I love chunky PB.

    I just want to see Reese come out with an eight-ounce version.

    Put two in a package, and that'd be a whole pound of chocolate-covered goodness.

    And it's good for you too, because chocolate, sugar and peanuts are all natural organic products, thus making them health foods.

    I agree on all counts except when it comes to the "Big Cup".

    The big cup is proportionately identical to the standard cup, just scaled up.

    If Andre the Giant were around to enjoy the big cup, he would have the same experience that you and I share with the standard cup.

    Where the f**k are my coconut M&Ms?:mad:

    They do a full size bar, it's not bad, but it has none of the RPBC qualitys to it. It tastes like something else altogether.

    They're one of my favorite snacks. I wasn't previously aware of the healthy food benefits. :D

    I agree that it's all about the PB to chocolate ratio, which is greatly reduced when you go to anything other than a standard-size cup. This has bothered me for a long time.

    Might I suggest that you do a demonstration video on YouTube and send it to the good folks at Reese's? I know you can present a very compelling argument. You're the right one to represent us, I'm sure all the others will agree. You've got my support.

    Now, the "Nutrageous" is incredible. Not a cup, but it will stand the test of time as being one of the best candy bars of all time.

    WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT.

    Reese's PBC are the perfect food (Says that as stuffing 4 mini's in to mouth like cookie monster).

    I no longer have a sweet tooth, but when I did, the one thing I always craved was peanut butter and chocolate together. Either the aforementioned cup or the Twix peanut butter bar.

    You are 100% correct Tango. I believe the ratio is preserved in the mini's but with the giant cup, you are getting too much PB and not enough chocolate.

    I would support Tango telling Reese's what they are doing wrong.

    I'm JD and I approve of this snack!!

    These are the greatest thing ever. At a 2 to 1 ratio with an Almond M&M, paradise.

    If you can find them.

    Do you have a local Walgreens drug store? They are really pushing them hard in my neck of the woods, almost to the point of giving them away. :eek:

    Sacrilege!!

    The peanut butter jelly M&Ms are the foulest thing ever, the coconut is the Yin to the PBJ's Yang.

    Going to Walgreens now. Thx.

    That sounds just awful. Here you are talking about Reese's PB cups with such reverence and you do a complete 180. I feel like I don't even know you any more.

    That is another one that is real good. That one is good because of the salt on the pretzel and the sweet of everything else.
