Taste test: Butterfinger meets Reese's? We've tried many variations of Butterfinger but we can't think of any that created as much excitement and anticipation as this. We opened the wrapper and immediately were stuck by two major changes from Reese's (and their various imitators): 1) The cups were not round, but instead were squares, with rounded corners. 2) There was no wax paper cup enclosing each one.
We bit in to find a soft feel from the smooth milk chocolate exterior, with some light crunchiness from the Butterfinger center. The crunch was far less solid than a Butterfinger bar, but it did still have that "essence of Butterfinger" feeling. The taste was a bit different than a Butterfinger bar, but it was still similar, and it tasted nothing remotely like Reese's. It was very milk chocolatey, reasonably peanut buttery/Butterfingery and quite good. And if you've ever avoided eating a Butterfinger because you were worried about bits of Butterfinger flying all over the place and getting lodged in your teeth, you need not worry about that here; it was not messy to eat at all. Ease of eating was enhanced too: The lack of a cup around each one saved the effort of peeling it off, and the cups still didn't stick together or to do the outside wrapper. We hope they keep this one around and don't make it just a limited-time product.
