    Let's Be Honest, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Are The Most Perfect Candy Ever Made

    Why would you eat trash candy corn when you could eat a chocolate that tastes like heaven?!

    So it's that time of year when the air starts to get crisp, the leaves start to change color, and, of course, stores start stocking an array of candies in anticipation of Halloween.

    But true connoisseurs of the finer things in life know that there is only ONE candy that stands above them all...

    ...that's right, Reese's mother-effing peanut butter cups!!!

    First and foremost, these delicious treats are the most perfect combination of sweetness and saltiness.

    It's like the buttery yet slightly flaky peanut butter and smooth milk chocolate were designed to only EVER be eaten with each other!

    And as all RPBC lovers know, they make them in various sizes to fit whatever mood you're in. From extra-large Big Cups... bite-size Miniatures (or probably better put, several-at-once-size).

    And regardless of what size you get, one fact remains the same: It's hard to eat just one.

    But the fun of RPBC doesn't end with just the different sizes! You can also enjoy them in a variety of delicious ways, like sandwiched in between an Oreo cookie...

    Fuck the bread and the meal, just bring me a whole cheesecake!

    ...or in cereal form! That's right, CEREAL.


    What other candy can you think of that makes a good cereal?!

    RPBC are also perfect for experimenting with — like using them instead of a chocolate bar to take your s'mores to a whole other level.

    Once you try this, you'll never go back to a basic AF Hershey bar.

    You can use them as a tasty garnish for a chocolate milkshake...

    TBH, this might be the rare case when the garnish tastes better the actual drink.

    ...or to ~fancy~ up a delicate and pretty dessert.

    Hell, you can even make them the main feature of your dessert.

    Both tasty and pretty!

    And if all of that isn't enough, it has a color scheme that screams, "HALLOWEEN FUN TIME. EAT CANDY!"

    Basically, we’re all this guy when it comes to Reese’s peanut butter cups:
