    Reese's Eggs Are Superior To Reese's Cups And It's Time Someone Said It Out Loud

    Like a plastic egg on Easter morning, I can hide my truth no longer.

    Hi, I'm Allie, and it's kind of my M.O. to care too deeply about all things. And this personality trait does, in fact, stem to candy as well.

    So, let's just cut right to the chase on this one because you've already read the title of this post and it's time someone said it: Reese's eggs are better than Reese's cups and that's just the truth.

    Now, I know what you're thinking:

    And the answer is: I'm tired of living a lie. I'm tired of pretending like just because the cup is "classic" (and, like, fine) the egg isn't something I look forward to all gosh darn year long. I'm even willing to accept my seasonal allergies because Spring is worth it for these babies.

    So for the people who have zero clue what the sweet heck I'm talking about, please allow me to elaborate: Once a year — at Easter time — Reese's releases a version of their famous peanut butter cup shaped like an egg...because Easter.

    And these candies are everything that is delicious about a Reese's cups magnified by a million and blessed by the mighty hands of the candy god herself. So simple, yet so complex.

    They are larger than the cups and contain a superior chocolate-to-peanut-butter ratio, IMO. Whatever Willy Wonka-esque mastermind at the Hershey's factory came up with their design deserves an honorary engineering degree because they're a genius.

    The egg shape is so unbelievably satisfying in your mouth, and it gets rid of the weird edges that come on the cups which are, frankly, the worst part about the cups (fight me).

    Pro-tip: Put them in the fridge or freezer for a cold and refreshing springtime treat (or to keep them good while you hoard them for the rest of the year).

    And before you even TRY ME, the other holiday shapes — the Christmas trees, the hearts, the pumpkins — are fine, but the egg...THE EGG...is the best one.

    NBC

    I'm even willing to accept that weird commercial where the chocolate bunny has sex with a jar of peanut butter because if the outcome is these eggs, who am I to judge? Love is love.

    So, in short, Reese's eggs are superior to all other Reese's products. They are the candy version of Chris Evans (who is the superior Chris, but that's another hot take for another time). Thank you for coming to my presentation, please exit through the comment section.
