I personally do not like Reese's much. I think the peanut butter and chocolate ratio is way off. However, if they decide to make one with maple (syrup) I may buy it. Have you try maple peanuts? It is heavenly... Any good ideas on other combinations for your fav. chocolate?

      I have always thought that chocolate and raspberry jam are wonderful together.

        I do have a soft spot for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Goes back to my childhood. I thought they were the greatest candy. Especially good right out of the fridge when the chocolate get's brittle.

          Speaking of PB cups, some years back in San Francisco, I enjoyed the greatest PB cup of all (IMO) at the Ghirardelli store in Ghirardelli Square. I have no idea who actually made it but it must have weighed in at 8 ounces at least. We split it between us...GREAT!

            I love Reese's, but I prefer them in the miniatures. They're great frozen as well.

            I like the new spicy chocolates that are out now. I also tried an excellent chocolate caramel that had banana in it at Chuao Chocolatier ... that was heavenly.

              My favorite candy bar is a Maple Nut Bun. They are kinda hard to find, not many places stock them. As a kid, I always got a big Maple Nut Easter egg (instead of the usual chocolate bunny)so I guess that's where the Maple and chocolate obsession started. Nowadays you can't find any Maple nut eggs. Too bad, but I do have fond memories.

                Chocolate and raspberry~~YUMMY!!!

                I prefer the Reese's sticks with the wafer-like cookie layered with the PB. Butterfinger is better.

                I love opera cream covered in chocolate. My mom hated me at Easter time!!

                  I like the small bite sized Reese's. They remind me of halloween from childhood. But, I prefer Mallo cups.

                    I love the miniature reeses cups, especially refrigerated.Its funny, though, I do not care for anything else Reeses flavored-no Reeses p.b.cheesecake or cookies or bars-just plain old little cups for me!

                        I totally agree with this, these things are better the colder they get.

                        Melt them, and they're gross, this candy needs to chill.

                          Delicious are rasberry or huckleberry with chocolate, like a bon bon or jelly center wrapped around good chocolate.

                            AndreaB you took the words right out of my mouth-Mallo Cups! They are the greatest. I love Reese's peanut butter cups, no matter what the size, but Mallo Cups are awesome. There is nothing better than a coconut chocolate cup with gooey marshmallow cream in the middle. I wish Wal-mart would make mini Mallo Cups the way they do the peanut butter cups and caramel cups, they would be sold out in our area if it were up to me.

                              Chocolate-covered orange rinds, wherever better chocolates are sold.

                                I love dark chocolate and orange! We used to get this orange sherbet with small pieces of dark chocolate in it...yummmmmmmmmmmm

                                There is a company called Vosges that makes unusual chocolates. The "Black Pearl" is dark chocolate with ginger, wasabi, and sesame seeds.
                                The "Oaxaca" is dark chocolate with guajillo & pasilla chilies and pumpkin seeds.
                                The "Absinthe" is dark chocolate with star anise, fennel, and anisette liqueur.
                                The "Red Fire" is dark chocolate with ancho chili powder and cinnamon.
                                The "Rooster" is Italian taleggio cheese, organic walnuts, Tahitian vanilla beans, and bittersweet dark chocolate.
                                The "Balsamico" is balsamic vinegar, dark chocoate, and hazelnuts.
                                The "Sale del mare" is the Sicilian sea salt, milk chocolate, caramel, and pine nuts.
                                The "Finocchio" is Tuscan fennel pollen, dark chocolate, and anise.
                                The "Viola" is milk chocolate with candied violet.

                                No, I'm not trying to advertise them - they are expensive (for me, right now) and I am trying to achieve some sensual pleasure by describing them since I cannot buy and eat them right now!
                                Maybe as a holiday gift to myself...sigh...yes, I think that come December/January, I may need to splurge...
