Taste test: From the outside, these looked just like regular Reese's, but after reading the warning on the label about a possible "laxative effect" from the "sugar alcohols" contained inside, I decided to only eat only enough of one cup to judge the taste.
The taste upon biting in was good, but the filling looked entirely different than a regular Reese's, quite pale in color, with a chalk-like texture and with none of the rough peanut butter texture that makes Reese's so good. The chocolate wasn't melty at all, but it did taste good. I ate about half of one of the two cups. It was definitely not the same experience as eating a real Reese's, but if you need to avoid sugar and your body can tolerate the sugar alcohols, there was nothing bad about how these tasted.
