QUICK REVIEW: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Dairy Whipped Topping

Reese s Peanut Butter Cup Dairy Whipped Topping

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.

Conclusion:

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.

  1. Thanks for the review! I was excited about this stuff; it’s good to know I shouldn’t bother wasting $$ on it.

  2. Much easier if you do it at home. Just whip up heavy cream and add chopped reeses in there. No brainer.

    1. @Aleksandr Rozentsvit: Of course, that can be said for all store-bought whipped cream products–you always can make them at home. But what’s the fun of that–you can’t shoot the aerosoled product directly into your mouth. 😉

    2. This is the Impulsive Buy….if your looking to share your recipes no matter how simple than I can think of many other sites where they would be better appreciated but I think most people visit this site to see new prepared and packaged snacks…but if even one person decides to try your recipe then maybe I am wrong.

  3. This is so disappointing. The 3rd picture you took looks so promising. How can a Reese’s product be bad? This could have been so blissful, but I thank you for taking the time to give us the low-down. And in such detail! What on earth could they have put in their “whipped topping” to prevent it from cooling down? Now that is something I never expected to hear. You’re good, InstaBanter. -From one of your millions of daily followers.

  4. I’m a Hershey’s fan and love peanut butter. so once I saw these products I had to try them. I decided to get the Reese’s one first and grabbed chocolate peanut butter ice cream to go with it! I was supper excited. I was shopping with my 18 yr old son and had picked up bakery chocolate chip cookies too he suggested we try the new whip topping on a cookie so we did. It tasted nothing like peanut butter and it has a funny smell, probably the aerosol. My son and I both agreed not worth wasting money on it and it didn’t get any better the next day when we tried it on the ice cream ? So very disappointed. Now Idk if I dare waste money on the Hershey’s chocolate one.

  6. I agree that the Reese’s whipped topping is a big disappointment. It tasted like PB2®? peanut butter powder to me and as you said, it comes out of the Can warm no matter HOW long it is refrigerated. Your nutrition information according to my Can is incorrect : This product does contain 1g of fat but not 3g of saturated fat.
    Thanks for the review.
