Review: Nestle - Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups

Nestle's new Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups seek to topple great King Reese's and sit atop the peanut butter cup throne (or at least grab a sizable piece of the pie). It's a milk chocolate-covered peanut butter cup with bits of Butterfinger crisps inside.

I bought a 1.5-ounce package for 89 cents.

The most noticeable thing out of the package is that these sport a rounded square shape rather than a circle like Reese's. Also, they don't come in cup liners but instead just sit on the paper tray. They melt pretty fast in your hand so you have to eat them pretty quickly or use the tray or wrapper to hold them.

The chocolate seems just a slight bit more creamy than what's found on a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup but the most striking difference is what's found inside.

The chocolate cup is filled with a Butterfinger-orange smooth peanut butter (as opposed to Reese's dried peanut butter) with occasional crispy bits of Butterfingers. There's a definite Butterfinger flavor to it but it's not as heavy as the actual candy bar and doesn't get stuck in your teeth. I'm not so sure about the orange color though.

Overall, Nestle's Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups are really good. The smoothness of the chocolate matches that of the peanut butter and there's that added signature Butterfinger flavor to give it an extra dimension.
