UPSIDE: These make great conversation starters.
Paddy, what do ya' got there?"
Paddy: "Not good! Not good at all."
What's with the recent white chocolate craze in the snack industry? Is there a white chocolate cartel putting pressure on the big candy makers to push more white chocolate product? Because, sister, it ain't working. I have yet to try a white chocolate version of a popular milk chocolate candy bar that has even remotely made me consider trying it again. (For a prime example, see Pina Colada Almond Joy.) And I'm a white chocolate fan.
In the case of White Chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, the so-so sweet white chocolate combined with the super-sweet fake peanut butter just doesn't work. Not only does the peanut butter dominate, the white chocolate causes the peanut butter to almost have a slight acid taste that lingers in your mouth long after the cups do.
Milk chocolate is sweeter and therefore balances the peanut butter - the two go together like the Captain & Tennille. White chocolate and peanut butter, on the other hand, go together like Jessica Simpson and Long Division.

Nicely done. The image above shows the wrapper cleanly (thanks to Mike from Mike's Candy Bar Wrapper Page) - the familiar Reese's italic logo and "2 Peanut Butter Cups" copy in the center of a peanut butter cup profile, milky swirls surrounding the familiar orange oval that protects the Reese's logo from the milk (like a logo lifeboat in a sea of milky goodness). And, of course, the the white chocolate peanut butter cup with a small nibble taken out of it. Likely, because the person who bit into it abandoned the rest of the candy for a large refreshing glass of turpentine.
DO YOU RECOMMEND THIS SNACK? (YES/NO - EXPLAIN):
Not really. I love white chocolate and I didn't like this product at all. However, I do see a segment of our population enjoying this snack. So if you're a prison inmate or someone with a badly burnt tongue, enjoy!
ONE DAY WHEN YOU RUN YOUR OWN CANDY COMPANY, WILL YOU MAKE WHITE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CUPS?
ANY ADVICE FOR THE YOUNG PEOPLE OF AMERICA?
