How To Eat A Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup

by Sherry Riter in Fun

One of my most favorite sweet candy treats to eat are Hershey’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I wouldn’t even be able to venture a guess as to how many I’ve eaten in my lifetime, but it would be quite a big number. I mean, I never do anything halfway. I’m an all or nothing kind of woman.

There is a special technique that goes with eating a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup and by following the procedure, I can obtain the greatest satisfaction in this sweet confection. Because I’m so nice and want you to also be able to enjoy the maximum benefit of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup flavor, I’m going to share my secret.

How To Eat A Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup

Behold a wrapped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup that is begging to be opened and eaten. More specifically, the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup is begging me to open it and eat it, so I am going to oblige.

First thing I had to do was make sure that it didn’t have any GRAIN in it. Guess what? No grain in a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.

Next step was to check the nutrition information. Nothing was necessary to read except that it has 2 grams of protein. Yep! It is a healthy snack! ;) You gotta humor me folks.

Very gently, I opened the wrapper to reveal an absolutely gorgeous Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup with beautiful ridges and a smooth round surface.

In order to gain the most satisfaction, I peeled the paper surrounding the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup off the edges and brought it together underneath making sure that it stayed connected to the center of the bottom of the candy.

Can you see that it is still connected?

Next, I take a tiny bite of the edge.

Then I turn the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup a little bit clockwise and take another tiny bite of the edge and another bite and another bite.

It actually takes seven or eight tiny bites of the edge of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in order to consume all the chocolate on the edge.

Then it is time to eat the center of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. It melted in my mouth because the warmth from my fingers on the bottom slight warmed the peanut butter. There was also a small bit of chocolate and peanut butter left on the center of the wrapper.

So I had to do the only thing that made any sense…I licked it all off.

One down and eight to go. The question isn’t really “can” I eat more, but “will” I give into the urge to eat another Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup?

You’ll just have to wonder about that question because I’m not telling you. I mean, really, a girl has got to have some secrets.
