  1. I tried one once but the original Reese’s is a perfect product so to me it seemed like a waste of a Reese’s, you can’t improve on perfection.

    1. I remember getting these while trick or treating as a child. Aaaand of course I didn’t chocolate and peanut butter so I’d trade them for rolos. I regret that so much now and I want nothing more than to see them again.

    2. The crunchy cookie cup is the one your referring to and yes I sure as hell remember that reeses and it was one of my all time favorite candy.

    3. @ Breezey. I remember those! And I miss them so much. They were my favorite oreo. Sometimes I randomly want one and since they no longer make them anymore, I have to deal without them. 🙁 I hope that one day they bring them back.

  2. Seriously? These are back while Reese’s Crunchy Cookie Cups, Strawberried Peanut Butter M&Ms, Cookies and Crème Twix, Triple Chocolate Twix, Java Twix and plenty of others remain missing? I tried Reese’s Crunchy Cups once and that was enough. They weren’t anything special. I wish Hershey’s and Mars would bring back some true fan favorites!

  3. I will be trying these 🙂
    I wish they would bring back the inside out peanut butter cups. They were by far my favorite.. We used to buy them by the box.

    1. The Inside Out Cups were great! I just wish the whole outside would have been peanut butter flavored instead of just the top. If I remember correctly, the bottom had a thin layer of regular chocolate along with the chocolate filling. That peanut butter coating was good stuff!

  4. Let us have a moment of silence for the peanut-butter banana cups, an LTO shortly before the recession… cold, those were amazing.

  5. Remember when Reeses went crazy and released like 6 different kinds all at the same time. I remember there being White Chocolate,Carmel,Inside Out “Peanut butter flavored shell, with chocolate flavored peanut butter” Double Peanut butter “Peanut butter flavored outside and regular peanut butter inside” and Dark Chocolate Reeses. They also brought out reeses pieces with peanuts in them. But nothing can compare to the crunch cookie cup reeses. Those were my go to candy in the mid 90’s.
