This Snack review has Mallow-Top Marshmallow Creme Reese’s, Sweetos Cheetos Cinnamon Sugar Puffs, Banana Caramel KitKats, and Reese’s Creamy & Crunchy. The most interesting to me were the Banana Caramel KitKats because of how crazy and accurate the flavor was. My favorite however, were the Marshmallow Reese’s because as a huge fan of Reese’s already, I actually thought these were better than their original counterparts!
Reese’s Mallow-Top Marshmallow Creme
Score: 9 / 10
Just like regular Reese’s but definitely not as sweet as they are mellowed out by the marshmallow flavored tops. My personal opinion though is that these are even better than the originals! Such a great, almost s’mores-like peanuty combination!
Released several years ago, these have come back every year around the Easter season.
Cheetos Sweetos Cinnamon Sugar Puffs
Score: 6 / 10
I expected a lot more cinnamon and sugar as Cheetos generally have a stronger flavor but these were fairly mild. They were still good but could have been so much better. Texture is crunchy and a lot like Cheetos but slightly more puffy.
Released in early 2015 as Cheetos’ first ever sweet snack for the Easter season, these have an extensive history.
Reese’s Puffs Cereal Popcorn
Score: 3 / 10
I LOVE Reese’s but this ain’t it. Not only do they barely smell like Reese’s, the flavor just isn’t there. It needs more… everything! More of that chocolate and peanuty Reese’s flavor. Until then, these will remain pretty plain, although, the texture was pretty firm, crunchy, and nice.
Released some time in late 2021 / early 2022. Found at Stop & Shop.
Banana Caramel KitKats
Score: 8 / 10
I wish US KitKat made these wild flavors. These Japanese KitKats were exactly as advertised and not at all too sweet. The banana, caramel, and chocolate were all present, nothing overwhelming the other. A very enjoyable KitKat flavor!
Found in my Tokyo Treat 2023 box.
Reese’s Creamy and Crunchy Cups
Score: 8 / 10
Both were good and on opposite ends of the spectrum with the original Reese’s in the middle. Unlike the semi-gritty texture of the originals, the Creamy had a super smooth peanut butter middle and the Crunchy were as stated, having bits of crunchy peanuts in the center. My personal pick is the Reese’s Creamy!
Released in April 2023 for a limited time until May 17th. This a competition between the two, with Hershey hosting a vote on their website. As of May 7th, Creamy is winning by nearly 100% across the US (see image below). On May 18th, Reese’s will reveal the winner.
