Reese's Dark

Were my expectations too high? Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are my very favorite go-to mass-marketed candy. I prefer dark chocolate to milk chocolate, so I had dreamed of the shift to a dark chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Cup for a lifetime. I had guessed that the dark chocolate would provide more of a contrast to the sweet peanut butter, but I just didn't taste that much of a difference. With each bite, I blamed myself for not tasting something new, something exciting, the combination I had been awaiting. I think Reese's needs to use a darker chocolate here with less sugar. I want to taste the savory notes of the peanut butter blending with all of that sugar. The Reese's Dark is still absolutely delicious but it could have been so much more.

Score (flavor): 4
