Speaking of which: every year for the last three holiday seasons, I have seen at Target GIANT novelty Reese's peanut butter cups. The first year, I marveled but did not buy, and later I rued it. So the second year, I determined to try some, so I put them on my wish list and I hinted to Paul, but he did not buy them for me. So the third year, I was definitely going to buy some for myself, but they were $10/package and I knew they'd go on sale for $8/package, so I waited---and they sold out before they went on sale, and I rued again.
This year I saw them at Target and they were already on sale for $8, so a pack came home with me.
|I'm not sure this fully communicates the vast novelty size.|
Our family consensus was that the proportion of peanut butter to chocolate was done very well (though it requires careful bite-strategies to make sure it STAYS right), and that this was a very fun novelty sort of thing. I can imagine starting a tradition of buying one package each year---maybe having it on the Friday after Thanksgiving, to kick off the Christmas season.
