Introducing Reese’s spread, more peanutty and more buttery than Nutella

By WiseTechie

 Reese - Peanut butter chocolate spread

Reese has a new spread in town, and it tastes different from Nutella or Hershey’s spread. Influenster recently sent us a Voxbox with the delicious chocolate and peanut butter treat and my family seems to adore it.

The product has a premium feel and taste to it, tastes almost like nutella minus the hazelnut and plus the peanut butter and amazingly has no HFCS. Personally I have had it as a spread and as a dip for veggies. It tastes nice as a spread on bread and muffins, so +1 there. I also tried to mix it with milk, that experiment I am sad to report did not go that well , basically it was yuck 🙂

In terms of health, not the healthiest option, a 37g modest serving has 190 calories with a good 100 coming from fat. However considering that most of the fat should be from peanut butter, your dietician wouldn’t throw a fit. The dextrose and hydrogenated fats suck though.

Overall for taste I would give it a 4/5 and for health 3/5.
