Taste test: It seemed like the Take 5 brand was quite a success as a Hershey's product, eventually dropping the Hershey's part of the branding to stand on its own, but for whatever reason, it has now been rebranded as Reese's Take 5. We reviewed Chocolate Cookie, Marshmallow and White Chocolate versions of Take 5, all of which included peanuts and peanut butter, but this Reese's one seemed to match the original one from 2005, with pretzels, caramel, peanut butter and peanuts, plus a milk chocolate coating.
The package included three separate, smallish bars, each fairly thick and rectangular-ish, with rounded corners, irregular sides and some bumps on the otherwise smooth chocolate top. I bit in to find a strong crunch from the pretzels, with every one of the elements quite obviously noticeable. It was somewhat like a Reese's, but the caramel and the salt from the pretzels definitely gave it an overall taste quite distinct from Reese's. The caramel made the experience a bit like some of the Turtle clusters, but with a more regular shape.

Smell test: A lot like a Reese's cup, but some caramel in there too.
