Reese Cups are one of those things I’ve tried a few times over the years. I was first introduced to them through my Uncle (many years ago) during a visit from The States – that’s probably 20 or so years ago now. Later that year, we happened to have some trick-or-treaters but having no real sweets to give away, I spotted the bag of Reese Cups in the cupboard. I handed one to each kid and off they went. After they left, I looked out the window to see if I should expect any more kids and spotted the three I had just spoken to, talking to another small group of children pointing at my house.
I’m not sure if they were even available in Australia at the time so it turns out they were quite a hit. After that, I pretended not to be home. In hindsight, I shouldn’t have given them out with all the allergies these days, who knows if one of those kids had a peanut allergy. Luckily for me, nothing came of it that year (at least that I know of). We don’t always have kids knocking on the door during Halloween – in fact, I remember it only happening over two years but that was a long time ago now.
Since then, I’ve found you can buy Reese Cups here from various places but I’ve never seen them this friggin’ huge before. Cool said that he was sending me something for Christmas but his only clues were “it’s big but in a small package” and “It’s light but pretty fragile.” OK?
This afternoon, I headed to the PO to see if my package had arrived.
I was careful not to read the customs declaration as Cool wanted to see my reaction when I opened it.
Holy Crap, just look at the size of those things… they’re bigger than the palm of my hand! LOL
Makes me wonder how long they’ll last… :P
I’ll have to add these to the list of things Cool’s sent in the past like the S’mores Pack and Twinkies I hadn’t tried before. The S’mores were pretty good but I must say that Twinkies have a weird aftertaste.
Now if only my package to Cool would arrive already…
