Mallo cups are good, but I've never had these. I imagine it's sort of a rip off.

For me it seemed like the first one wasn't very good, but the second one was way better.

Overall, I'll stick to the classics

For Reese to so drastically tweak what is one of the most classic snack tastes in North America, they really needed to be certain that they were doing it properly. Since the mixed reviews of Reese's white chocolate and inside-out variations, the Peanut Butter cup community has been increasingly wary of any new developments. And it is with that trepidation as background that I attempted this new bold variation of the classic peanut butter cup. However, it was clear with the first bite that something had gone horribly wrong.

The first bite of a normal PBC always yields a really satisfying collapse of the rigid outer edge of the cup. This bite is, for me, the real payoff of the snack. Because of the layer of gooey marshmallow in this variation, the collapse never happened. Rather than splitting off into crisp fragments, the cup dissolved into a gelatinous mess. This opening salvo of disappointment was not a good sign.

Although I am a fan of the texture and taste of milk chocolate, peanut butter and marshmallow individually, Reese has managed to combine them in such a way to destroy the best parts of all three. The classic chocolate/peanut butter combination is convoluted by the overpowering thick texture of the marshmallow; the natural sweetness of marshmallow is cut by the tang of the peanut butter, and the melt-in-your-mouth beauty of the PBC is counteracted by the overall feeling of chewy gooeyness.

With a smaller amount of marshmallow, or perhaps a structural redesign, this snack may have been a worthwhile addition to the shelves, but as it stands now, the Limited Edition Reese Peanut Butter Cup with Marshmallow is a disastrous and disgusting sideroad off of the Road to Delicious. Don't walk away from this monstrously awful
