Reese's Elvis Cups Limited Edition Peanut Butter and Banana Creme
My dream came to fruition when my friend Dan turned up with not just one but twenty-four packages of the limited edition Reese's Elvis Cups flaunting a layer of Banana Creme! And these don't disappoint! Though the "Creme" lacks the ooze I had envisioned, the flavor blends beautifully with the peanut butter and chocolate. Surprisingly, this is not the blantantly synthetic banana flavor favored in candies like Laffy Taffy. Instead, it's a subtle and realistic banana, which can easily be lost under the more strident peanut butter. These are delicious and so worth a try if you can track one down. When it comes down to it, though, you really can't improve on the classic and if I had to choose I would always take the original version, subtle banana or no.
