Reese's Peanut Butter Cups: Delicious or Disgusting?

I used Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for my sermon illustration this last Sunday and left one pack on every table. It was my way of giving the Kiwi's a cultural taste of American candy. The only problem was i had a different reaction than expected. About half loved it, and half disliked it! For Being one of the most sold candy's during American holidays, i expected more of an addictive response than different people explaining it as having almost a salty taste or too much peanut butter or that our chocolate is just a little more potent/bitter. Oh well...

...the way i see it, that leaves more of the still limited supply of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in New Zealand for me!

They do have a bit of a salty taste, but that's one reason they're so good, ya get the sweet and salty at the same time:) I think there are still a few of us willing to search for this scrumptious chocolate over here in NZ.

First off, I'm sorry to hear you died. However, the Reese's perk is not a bad thing if you live to enjoy more! Keep telling the Kiwi's they're not good.

Did you honestly expect them to be loved by everyone? That seems like a quaint bit of cultural imperialism: try understanding that other people have different tastes and expectations before "knowing" that they will love your delicacies as much as you do.
As for me: I tried them once, and never again! Fatty, slimy consistency with poor quality chocolate, they really are just "bite sized diabetes". I have no idea what New Zealanders like to snack on, but they should give this import a miss.
