King Reese's Trees for Christmas
The trees are 2.5 inches long and 1.25 inches at their width, with a thickness of 0.75 inches. They have a very strong peanut scent with only a light milk chocolate. I also know from experience that this will be true for the taste as well but I'm OK with this since this brings back childhood memories. I always start at the top of the tree much like I start with the head of any human or animal figure in candy. This had a surprisingly salty taste I was not expecting, an almost burnt taste actually as it lingers in my mouth. The lightness of the chocolate can't fight this unpleasant taste at all.
While I know this certainly isn't the best chocolate and peanut butter combination I've ever had, Reese's is something I grew up with so I like to indulge once or twice a year. I just wish this had tasted better because over all I was disappointed this year.
