Reese's Introduced A Cute New Peanut Butter Cup

Reese's is well-known for celebrating the popular combination of chocolate and peanut butter. 

Over the years, the candy company has gotten more creative with its offerings, releasing chocolate peanut butter treats in shapes such as pumpkins, Christmas trees, and Easter eggs.

Reese's is innovating again by releasing another candy shape. Food Instagram @markie_devo reported that Reese's recently made its peanut butter cup a peanut. 

The Instagrammer reported that Facebook user Your Snack Dealer saw the candy near Walmart's checkout area and shared the news.

The peanut-shaped Reese's comes in regular and "king" sizes, including a two-pack. According to Allrecipes, these peanut butter cups are "currently available in select stores for a limited time."

Reese's fans were excited about the news, with some preferring their "shapes" to round peanut butter cups on social media.

"Every shape beats the regular cup," one Instagram user told @markie_devo. Another said, "Shapes have the perfect ratio of chocolate coating to peanut butter!"

The product label calls the image a "decorating suggestion." Your Snack Dealer commented on Facebook with a photo of the new candy without the peanut's lines.

A Florida woman sued Hershey last week for "misleading" Halloween-themed Reese's peanut butter cups advertisement.

The complaint claims the candy company misled customers by promising "explicit carved-out artistic designs."

The first Reese's Caramel Big Cup debuted in November, followed by the peanut-shaped product. 

This new peanut butter cup combines chocolate and peanut butter with gooey caramel in standard and king-sized packages.
