Oh Boy!

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 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 but it turns out they were quite a hit. After that, I pretended not to be home. In hindsight, I probably shouldn’t have given them out with all the allergies these days. Hopefully none of them had a peanut allergy. Luckily for me, nothing came of it that year (at least that I know of). It’s not often we get kids knocking on the door though so this was unexpected.

Since then, I’ve found you can buy Reese Cups from various speciality shops 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 Post Office to see if my package had arrived.

It had!

I was careful not to read the customs declaration as Cool wanted to see my reaction when I opened it.

Reese cups

2 Half Pound Cups!

Holy Crap, 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 the Twinkies have a weird aftertaste.

Now, if only my package to Cool would arrive already…

  2. Reese’s cups are a WONDERFUL thing! If you can find the Reese’s Miniatures do so. They are a bag of individually wrapped baby Reese’s cups and are so much more yummier when kept in the freezer. OM NOM NOM!! :)

  4. I had to stop buying those to give out at Halloween because I ate them all before the kids ever got there, lol. Never thought about the peanut thing though, good idea. So I better just keep eating them all!

  5. Mmmm! I didn’t know they came that large, either!

    My favorites are the dark chocolate covered mini ones :P

    • Cool – That’s a pretty bold assumption :P

      Slice – Well, I’ll be sure to enjoy it while it lasts :)

      Thel – Yep, they are the ones my Uncle had. You can generally buy the twin pack here at our local milkbar. Just not this size :P

      Lyss – Haha, hope your can find them.

      Tome – Yeah, I kept thinking I’m going to get an angry knock at the door from an irate parent.

      Kam – Ooh, maybe I can try those one day.

  6. Oh man, I lived in the States for a while when I was a kid and Reese’s Cups were a staple. Massive nostalgia seeing them again! Although I had no idea they made them so huge. x.x
