Taste test: These rectangular cakes looked quite nice from the outside, with smooth milk chocolate surfaces accented by some peanut butter squiggles on top.
I bit in to find that they were just like the picture on the box, a mostly chocolate cake interior with the chocolate top and bottom separated by a fairly thin peanut butter layer. They didn't claim to be Reese's bars, but rather just to contain Reese's peanut butter to go along with the Tastykake chocolate, and indeed, they were not made by Reese's at all, but by Tastykake, which just licensed the name. That's pretty much what they tasted like, not actually like Reese's, just a mix of chocolate cake and a creamy, peanut butter-like substance. It was still a good moist mix of milk chocolate and PB, pretty good, but it just wasn't really Reese's in any way as far as the taste went.

Smell test: Pretty good chocolate and peanut butter smell.
From the package: “5 individually wrapped peanut butter naturally and artificially flavored creme filled cakes” ... “Made with Reese's Peanut Butter” ... “The Reese's trademark and trade dress and Orange background are used under license.”
