Reese’s Giant Peanut Butter Egg: More PB, More Chocolate, More Yay!

I don’t remember the exact year that giant Reese’s Eggs hatched on candy shelves across America, I just imagine that the day someone, somewhere, at some time came up with idea for them, magical things likely happened the world ‘round. Unicorns took flight over candy-colored rainbows; cats and dogs became best friends for a few short, amazing minutes. And, even if those magical things didn’t happen, something amazing did happen nonetheless. An idea became a candy reality, and that candy reality is just one more reason to love Reese’s.

Weighing in at a sizable 6 ounces, Giant PB Eggs have a slightly thicker chocolate shell than the normal Reese’s Cup. This does throw off the chocolate to peanut butter ratio bite-for-bite, so they are ‘different’ than Peanut Butter Cups in more ways than shape and size alone. For routine enjoyment, I prefer the chocolate to peanut butter ratio of normal PB Cups. However, I also greatly enjoy the slightly different flavor and eating experience that the giant eggs offer. There’s something a bit more decadent about them that makes eating one feel special.

If you’d like to get your hands on a Reese’s Giant Peanut Butter Egg or 2, the options online actually appear to be fairly limited! I was surprised by how few of my usual candy haunts don’t appear to be carrying them. However – I did find 3 great resources! Additionally, I haven’t had much trouble finding these in stores, so it is worth checking next time you’re out and about. I’d keep my candy eyes peeled at Target, Walmart, Dollar General, Kmart, grocery stores, or any place near you that typically stocks a nice amount of holiday candies. As for those 3 places online – here they are…
