In the past, Reese’s peanut butter cups made in the shape of say, “Christmas trees” or “hearts,” kinda looked more like regular round Reese’s gone awry. Case in point:
But as the saying goes, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. And try again Reese’s is with bat-shaped peanut butter cups. And despite previous disappointments, I don’t think I’m alone in saying that I’m really pulling for Reese’s to have a bat-shaped win, because the potential cuteness + deliciousness is scary high for these Halloween treats. (“Scary high”… see what I did there?) I can already see them as cupcake toppers, pressed into brownie icing, or as a the “cherry” on top of a spooky ice cream sundae.
Bat-shaped Reese’s will be joining the seasonal treat ranks with Reese’s Pumpkins, but you’ll only be able to find them at Target ($3.59 a bag), so get there on the double. Fingers crossed for some convincingly frightening sweets! But if they just end up looking like poorly executed circles again, it all tastes the same, right?
