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.

Redhead Riter, I know that this is going to be hard for you to believe, but I have never eaten a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in my life and I have no intentions of eating one now – no matter how hard you try to tempt me! I just don’t have a sweet tooth! :)

But just out of curiosity, is it better than sex? ;)

Now if you had posted a picture of an egg salad sandwich piled high with mayonnaise on rye bread with romaine lettuce and a bag of potato chips I would be salivating like Pavlov’s dogs! :)

You wouldn’t have even had to post the picture of an egg salad sandwich to tempt me – just the jar of mayonnaise would have been enough to get me salivating! :)

No. As a matter of fact, Alyssa hates peanut butter. That means she hasn’t ever liked Reeses’s Peanut Butter Cups, peanut butter cookies or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Obviously, this will help you understand even more why I had to cook great meals since I couldn’t just slap together a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for her and call it a meal.

BUBBLE BURST on the way… sorry!! Reeses cups are not grain free!! Look up dextrose – it’s usually made from corn or rice both grains! My super sensitive tummy tells me this is true – I cannot eat them HUGE sad face!! :-(( http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_dextrose

Reply

Sherry Riter October 10, 2012 at 10:53 pm

OH NO!!!! Going to look it up…

— a monosaccharide, d-glucose monohydrate; used chiefly as a fluid and nutrient replenisher, and also as a diuretic and for various other clinical purposes. Known as d-glucose in biochemistry and physiology.

—The dextrorotatory form of glucose found naturally in animal and plant tissue and derived synthetically from starch. (Not looking good. They just said “plant” and now I’m worried.)

—glucose available in various solutions for IV administration (Does this mean that I can’t get glucose in the hospital if I need it?)

—Dextrose is a refined sweetener made from plant starch, usually corn or rice starch. Sometimes this is tapioca based. Depending on the labeling laws in your country they may state whether it is corn/maize/rice or tapioca, but not always.

OH NO!!!! I ATE IT!!!!! DANG IT!!!! Why do they sneak in the grain!!!!?

Sheesh, now I can’t eat the rest of the Reeses Peanut Butter Cups! In all honesty, I only ate one, but thank goodness now that I know it has grain in it!

Thank you, Colleen for pointing it out to me! {{{hugsss}}}
