Peanut Butter Cups

Friends of Dannation know our feelings about the marriage of chocolate and peanut butter. (Hint: Mmmm.) Naturally, for Hallowe'en I handed out Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - the regular-sized ones. I may have checked a few for quality assurance. Today, I realized the packaging changed. While the deliciousness remains in the familiar brown cup, the packaging has changed. Gone is the white cardboard square and the sealed wrapper, in favor of the tear-on-the-side plastic. (I had to eat several to notice the change.)

It is a good change because there is less waste, but the experience of opening a Reese's has changed. Part of enjoying a Reese's was peeling the wrapper of the bottom, akin to opening a package. Oh, the anticipation. Imagine the experience of a Tootsie Roll with out untwisting the wrapper? Or a Dum-Dum lollipop without a stick?

I need something to comfort me as I recover from the shock. I think I'll have another Reese's.

Amen Brother! Though it's been a while, I hear you on the packaging change. Miss the old style. But it's Peanut Butter Pumpkin season, so I won't worry about it too much!
