Review: Reese's Snack Cakes

Reese's Snack Cakes feature a "soft baked chocolate cake topped with Reese's peanut butter creme covered in smooth real milk chocolate."

I paid $1.33 for a 2.75-oz pack of two snack cakes.

The cake portion felt less like a soft-baked chocolate cake and more like a dense, slightly hardened, slightly crumbly brownie. There was a chocolaty flavor to it that echoed the creamy, richer notes of the milk chocolate coating.

The milk chocolate coating is the same as you'd get on a regular Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. It's smooth, fairly thick, and quite a bit meltier than the chocolaty (but not actually chocolate) coating you find on most snack cakes, which is to say it tasted better but was also messier.

The peanut butter creme offered a similar flavor as Reese's peanut butter but was milder with a more smooth and even texture.

Overall, Reese's Snack Cakes looked and felt more like candy bars than snack cakes, although the chocolate cake/brownie might be the strongest element as it's at least twice the size of the peanut butter creme layer. It turned out nicely enough for a candy bar but I was expecting something more snack cake-like.
