The original Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups have been around for almost 100 years and are now an iconic candy with fans around the world. Though they have released many products and variations, nothing has even come close to the status of the original, until now.
So, which is the best Reese’s?
Reese’s Thins are taking the internet by storm and gaining many die-hard fans, so we had to try to answer this burning question.
Could a thin version actually supersede the iconic status of Reese’s peanut butter cups?

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups: The Taste Test
Is it peanut butter in chocolate or chocolate in peanut butter? We aren’t sure, but it’s a winning combination either way.
Sweet peanut butter covered in a layer of chocolate. Yum!
These come in 3 varieties, original milk chocolate, dark, and white. Although milk chocolate is the classic, we tried all three versions of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for this.
Peanut butter is the star, shining through even the bitterness of dark chocolate.
Both peanut butter and chocolate lovers go wild for Reese’s cups, so it’s no surprise that our reviewers did too.
We wish every review could taste this good!
Reese’s Thins: The Taste Test
Reese’s Thins exceeded our expectations. These sweet, thin bites are a nice treat, especially for chocolate lovers.
They also come in dark, milk, and white chocolate varieties.
The chocoholics in our group preferred the taste of Reese’s Thins over the more peanut buttery classic Reese’s cups.
Even those that do not care for dark or milk chocolate said that the white chocolate Thins are the best of the Reese’s products we tried for this post.
The Verdict: The Best Reese’s Is…
We chose to individually pick which product we preferred for each type of chocolate and then tally the results. It was definitely a close vote.
Reese’s Thins barely edged out Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, by one vote, for the win!
While our Food Rankers crew picked Reese’s Thins, we still love the classic peanut butter cups, so you can’t go wrong either way!
