Taste test: When I spotted this bar at my local pharmacy, I did a double-take just to make sure I wasn't misremembering the name of the Reese's Nutrageous bar. But it was indeed a new bar, and the idea seemed to be to take the elements of a Nutrageous — caramel, chocolate and peanuts — and replace the peanuts with Reese's Pieces.
This follows a trend that Hershey's has been incorporating Reese's Pieces into many of their products, including Hershey bars, Mini Reese's cups with Pieces inside and regular-size Reese's cups with Pieces inside.
The bar had a lumpy exterior, but the bumps resulting from Reese's Pieces inside seemed to give it a more patterned, less random appearance than Nutrageous. I bit in to find that the core was made of a peanut butter/caramel mixture, wrapped in brown, yellow and orange mini-Reese's Pieces, then coated in milk chocolate. I could taste all of those things, but the Reese's Pieces dominated. A sweet bar overall, probably too sweet if I hadn't had it with some cold milk. Pretty good, but if you don't like Reese's Pieces, I wouldn't go there.
