Isn’t that a nice change?
A little while ago (Ok, I think it may have been October. That’s not that long is it?), while grocery shopping, I bought a bag of Reese’s Pieces.
Before that purchase I don’t think I had a Piece of Reese’s in years. Several years. And you know what I discovered? Reese’s Pieces are delicious. Really, really delicious. So delicious, in fact, that I decided that Reese’s Pieces are the world’s most underrated candy. They’re fantastic, small, easy to transport and pop right into your mouth (which may be a problem depending on the way you look at it) and did I mention that they’re really, really delicious? And they never get their due. M&M’s get plenty of attention because they’re chocolate, and there are all those variations (peanut, almost, peanut butter…) and … I’m not sure why. Sure, they’re good but they’re no Reese’s pieces. And then you have Skittles which are fruity and therefore fall into a completely different candy category. However both of those candies get plenty of attention, but the Pieces, well, when was the last time you had a Piece? When was the last time you even thought about Reese’s Pieces? If they stopped making them would you even notice?
Now, don’t mistake me, I’m not saying that Reese’s Pieces are the best candies. There’s plenty of candy out there that’s better (those Lindt balls that they have at the checkout at my Smith’s (in hazelnut) are a thing of wonder (and only 25 (or is it 33?) cents)) but everyone knows how amazing those candies are, you just don’t think about Reese’s Pieces. And you really should.
What it all comes down to is that for my money (and Sean’s since he’s been good enough to keep me continually stocked since my October purchase), it’s Reese’s Pieces every time.
So how about you? What’s the most underrated candy in your world?
