Reese’s Dark Cups

2 06 2010

I visited Hershey Park over the weekend with some friends and caught chocolate fever. After taking a ride through “Chocolate World”, I bought a ton of Hershey candy in the huge gift shop. Given the occasion, it seemed like a great time to post the first candy review on JCR.

Reese’s Dark Cup

Reese’s cups have always been one of my favorite candies. I also prefer dark chocolate to milk chocolate, which makes Reese’s Dark Cups a natural selection for me. Hershey’s chocolate is mass produced and not of the highest quality, but it is cheap and accessible. If you read this blog for just a minute or two, with all the value menus and fast food joints, you will know how much I value “cheap and accessible”.

After biting into this cup, I immediately noticed that the chocolate is more soft and chewy than Reese’s milk chocolate cup. I was hoping for a more solid and brittle texture. Nevertheless, the dark chocolate is very rich and buttery, slowly melting in your mouth if you manage to not swallow each morsel right away. This is a very rich candy – I could not handle more than two cups at a time.

One word of advice to those who want to try the Dark Cups – try putting them in the fridge first. They taste better cold, have a slightly firmer texture, and they don’t melt all over your hands.

Reese’s Dark Cups were good, but the low quality dark chocolate used here makes them inferior to the classic taste of the milk chocolate cup. Keep an eye out for more candy reviews coming soon!
