What is it?
Reese’s-flavored “Dairy Whipped Topping,” because “whipped cream” wasn’t enough of a mouthful.
How is it?
On paper, this is a great idea. The can is inviting. The image of peanut butter cream surrounded by a rainstorm of Reese’s cups only elicits happy feelings, so why is this so bad?
It’s an aerosol-style can with a nozzle, so I hit it from the source first. That’s where all the fun lies.
It’s “dairy whipped topping” so you can imagine the texture, although this is even airier than I expected. The flavor hints at it, but at no point did I feel like I was ingesting a Reese’s product.
I normally complain when something like this is too sweet, but it’s barely sweet at all. There is a light lingering peanuty flavor. Not only that, the cream basically remains at room temperature no matter how long it’s been refrigerated. I had it in the fridge all day, and it was still lukewarm at best.
If you like unappetizing peanut-flavored foam, I guess this is for you.
Is there anything else I need to know?
I could instantly tell there was no way this would hold its flavor when used as an actual topping. To test the theory, I went with chocolate pudding. The already faint cream flavor was dwarfed immediately. It did nothing to enhance the pudding.
I imagine any ice cream would easily wash out the “Reese’s” flavor.
I like the thought, but Hershey dropped the ball. They need to ramp up the sweetness if they want this to be a viable topping choice.
After taking a few more rips from the can, I had a flashback to my days chugging little white half and half cups off diner tables. While I laughed at my younger, dumber self, it made me sick to my stomach.
Just sprinkle some other Reese’s product on your ice cream and forget about this.
