A Ranking Of Which Reese's Products Have The Most Peanut Butter Bang For Your Buck

Mo' peanut butter, mo' better.

If there's one thing that Reese's does well, it's knowing how to combine peanut butter and chocolate just right. It's the reason the company went from a basement operation to a billion dollar industry more than 50 years ago.

There was a time when only one Reese's product existed, and therefore there was only one peanut butter-to-chocolate ratio, but today with the Big Cups, Miniatures, Eggs and Hearts, the options are vast and varied. And so too is our beloved ratio -- even if not many of us realize it.

Redittor Rustid did notice this fact and decided to figure out just how much peanut butter comes with each Reese's. Rustid removed the peanut butter from select Reese's -- listed below -- measured and weighed them and then put together a chart with the findings. The results may surprise you.

These are the Reese's put to the test:

  • Large Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Hearts
  • Reese’s Pumpkin
  • Reese’s King Size
  • Reese’s Snack Size
  • Reese’s Small Heart
  • Reese’s Miniature
  • Reese’s Mini

Here's what was discovered: the large Reese's heart that's sold during the Valentine's holiday has the most peanut butter-to-chocolate ratio (a whole 60 percent) while the small Reese's heart contains the least amount of peanut butter, only a little over 19 percent. Take a look at where everything else ranked.

Will this affect the kind of Reese's you buy?
