Peanut Butter Pumpkins

Of all the pumpkin things that appear in stores this time of year, my favorite has to be the Reese’s peanut butter pumpkin. I prefer the Starbuck’s Christmas Eggnog latte to the #PSL pumpkin spice cult that has developed in fall. While I can have a Saranac Pumpkin beer and not dislike it, I would never pick up a six pack. I don’t love pumpkin bread, muffins, or pancakes. But when I see a peanut butter pumpkin by the register as I am checking out, I just can’t resist.

I feel the same way about all of the seasonal Reese’s: the trees, the eggs. I watched a “How Its Made” episode about it once, and the reason these seasonal treats are so much more delicious than the regular cups is a more favorable (in my opinion) peanut butter to chocolate ratio. The pumpkins are packed with PB, with only a light chocolate coating instead of the ridged edges of the cup. Good thing they start putting Halloween candy out in September!
