# 93 I learned from @jstory07 ‘s post that November is Peanut Butter Lover Month. I didn’t even know that there’s a whole month dedicated for peanut butter lover, but now that I know, let this discussion be my contribution to all the peanut butter lovers out there… Who doesn’t know Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? Well, we all or at lease most of us are familiar with this American classic of creamy milk chocolate combined with peanut butter. Now Reese’s has come up with peanut butter chocolate spreads. It’s like eating Reese’s cups with a spoon out of a jar!

A friend of mine can only eat white chocolate because she is allergic to milk chocolate. She was so psyched to see white chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. It made her day.

Oh yes, I saw those too... I was going to get some for my son who doesn't like chocolate... But then I remember he doesn't like peanut butter either, so I didn't get any...

In Italy, there is the "Nutella". Do you know it? Maybe it is the same thing? I don't know.

Yes, I know Nutella... It is similar in terms of them being chocolate spreads. But of course this one has the specific taste of Reese's peanut butter...

@sishy7 I believe that what you mean, is not unfortunately for me, marketable in Italy.

@alberello75 I only found this product down here recently, I'm not sure how long it has been around in the States where it's originated.

Gosh, my husband will be trying this one! I am crazy about peanut butter, with various kinds of jelly. Chocolate isn't one of my favorite foods.

@sishy7 I eat them once in a while, a small one. I am diabetic and candy isn't important to me.

Well, that makes sense but I still like Nutella better .... I don't like peanut butter. I wish they'd make a walnut/dark chocolate spread, now that would really be tasty AND healthy

When I first saw the distinct orange Reese's brand on the shelf next to the other peanut butter jars, I knew I had to get one and try it... I wasn't disappointed with the taste at all... It's simply delicious!

@sishy7 Could be. I bought a pack, as it was on offer - it's peanutty, but a bit sweet. I'd rather have a PBJ sandwich ;) I like chocolate coated roasted peanuts - not m&ms, with their hard candy coat, but just peanuts dipped in milk chocolate - yummy and crunchy.

I spread it on bread... Although I was looking at the 'Serving suggestion' picture on the jar and wondering what it was they have it on besides bread... It looks like they have it on avocados?

i thought i would like reese peanut butter cups when i finally got to taste it. i didn't. i was shocked at how sweet it was. i love peanut butter and dark chocolate so a spread combining those would be perfect. a chocolate spread we had once a few years back that i really liked was ovomaltine.

Yes, I wish they have this is dark chocolate... Oh, I've never heard of Ovomaltine before... Sounds almost like Ovaltine, I wonder if it's also made from chocolate malt...

@sishy7 i thought it was ovaltine, too, at first glance, until i stared at the bottle while eating it (spread on bread). i loved the crunchiness.

@hereandthere Oh, is it crunchy? So it's not really smooth like Nutella? It's probably more similar to Reese's spread because it does have some crunchiness from the peanut butter, I believe...

Huge Peanut Butter fan, and Reeses fan. Especially White Chocolate, so if they have this one in a jar, this would be hard to not resist, and want to eat the whole jar in one sitting.

@tusziget I am among them, normally there is no actual peanut butter in India, and marketer perhaps marketed outdated product to Indian market which was tasteless.

! We have the supposed healthier version of Nutella with dark chocolate . . . but omg I gotta try this Reese's spread (I am quite positive the kids would help me on this one too ). So are you actually eating this with a spoon? My kids like the chocolate spread on croissants!

@sishy7 I actually bought some mini croissants yesterday, but when I came home, I discovered there was no chocolate spread left (I had no idea because the kids help themselves to snacks and I rarely eat that). Well, it's a good excuse for me to buy the Reese's now .

@much2say Have you seen them before but just didn't buy it or is this product not really available yet? I think this is new down here. I have never seen them in supermarkets before until just recently.
