Review: Good Humor Reese's Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cup Eggs

I've gotten free food offers at random several times in the history of this blog.  One thing I've never gotten is an offer of free products in that correlate with a calendar event.  With that said, it's time for an Limited Edition Easter themed review with this first review of a Good Humor product with this box of Good Humor Reese's Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cup Eggs.  Each box has six egg-shaped bars and each bar is three fluid ounces and 240 calories.  Basically, it's the same thing as the typical bar that Good Humor produces, with the exception that they've re-shaped this one to celebrate the season.

When I broke this open (actually took a bite) and saw the interior of this, I saw that there's not a lot to describe here than to just basically take the description directly from the front of the box and re-type it here, so that's what I'll do.  Each egg was "Peanut Butter Ice Cream With A Reese's Peanut Butter Swirl Dipped In A Milk Chocolate Flavored Coating."  After taking a look myself and also taking a look at the picture above, you can definitely see that's what it is, although the swirl is slightly hidden and not truly reveal itself until I was deeper into the bar.  Outside of the physical appearance, it's aromatic appearance carried that familiar Reese's Peanut Butter Cup smell, so if you are a big fan of those, you'll be licking your lips before eating this.

Obviously this product carries the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup branding, so that's the flavor it was going for and it did succeed, albeit in a slightly different format.  In the candy itself, the chocolate to peanut butter amounts are very close.  In this ice cream bar, the peanut butter portion was clearly the leader in the clubhouse.  The chocolate component was only present in the strong and sweet, yet brittle, external chocolate layer.  That brittle chocolate layer added a bit of crunch texture to each bite and made it kind of fun.  As for the peanut butter flavored ice cream and swirl, the peanut butter flavor was definitely strong and carried that typical Reese's sweetness along with it.  The ice cream made it a bit softer and easier to chew than the actual candy, but it was essentially the same.

Buy It or Fly By It?  There's nothing wrong with this and this is basically just a regurgitation of the candy in a slightly different presentation and it's done in a successful way.  Since I like the candy itself, anything that does a reasonable job re-creating that gets a BUY IT rating from me.  Outside of the Easter season, these are available from Good Humor in the non-egg shape form, so you can pick them up all year if you are looking for that Reese's candy in a slightly different and somewhat fun presentation.
