Taste Test: Reese's Spread

Taste Test: Reese's Spread

As an Influenster, I received a bottle of Reese's Spread. I was so excited to try this product. I love Nutella and was eager to see how it compared. I must say Reese's aren't my favorite candy, but every now and then will crave that sweet and savory taste. Upon receiving the sample, I made some toast and use the Reese's Spread. I really enjoyed the combination of the chocolate and peanut butter. It wasn't like a melted Reeses' Peanut Butter Cup. It had a great consistency and wasn't too rich. We also made crepes this past week and I prefer Reese's Spread as a dessert spread and would use it more likely to enhance my desserts. My family loved the taste, I was surprised at how quickly it was consumed. A major down fall is the ingredients. Sugar is number one followed by peanuts. There are a total of 19 grams of sugar per 2 tablespoons. However, comparing it to a similar product, like Nutella (my favorite), which contains 21 grams of sugar per 2 tablespoons. Nutella also has sugar as its main ingredient.

I would definitely purchase Reese's Spread again, it's not too sweet, but satisfying and also is versatile in its various uses (fruit, bread, ice cream, crepes, etc).

  1. mmmm, I've always seen it in stores but have never bought it. I think it may be too dangerous to keep around :)

    1. I can totally understand. I go through periods of time where chocolate is all I want, but right now I've been craving Mike and Ikes. Errr. :) Thanks for stopping by.
