Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Minis

Health food? Naaaah. But a smaller, Honey-I-Shrunk-The-Kidsesque version of a food everyone loves might be a good step. If you hadn't already guessed, they're a petite version of the classic candy, the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Six of these little minis make up one big peanut butter cup.These are pretty tasty, not too far from the regular Reese's. They come unwrapped in a bag that reminds our cat of her treat bags. Every time we opened the bag, she would come over, expecting a treat. The bag is clearly so recognizable that even pets know what it reminds them of, and leads us to believe if the designers wanted this bag to be like "pet treats for humans." The chocolate to peanut butter ratio is a bit higher and I found myself missing that sticky mouthfeel that I get from the regular ones. The chocolate melts quickly and recedes to a nutty, creamy peanut butter. Not salty. Nothing complex here. Just tasty and snackable.My main problem with these was that they were deceptively small and with such a size, it's hard to realize how many you can ingest, in veritable handfuls, before having eaten the equivalent of one or two packages of Reese's. They do provide more long-term satisfaction as you can ration them out over the course of a film or an afternoon, but overall, don't really provide the same amount of hunger quelling that I wanted them to. I find them tastier and crumblier than the Trader Joe's cups. They had much more peanut butter.
