You Got Vanilla on my Peanut Butter

Vanilla is the color of my true love's chocolate?

If it Ain’t Broke, Fix it ‘Til it Is: From the Department of Not Very Good Ideas, we bring you the White Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.

Thanks for trying, Hershey’s, and let’s not make a habit of it, shall we? I’m with Paddy O’Poppycock on this one: not a good way to spend your diabetes dollar.

By the way, I’d post a better picture of the thing – but that one has already been eaten, and I have no intention of buying any more of them.

    Personally I consider white chocolate not only an oxymoron, but a crime against humanity.

    I won’t go all the way to calling it an Abomination, but I’m sympathetic to people who do think of it that way. White chocolate in its rest state is very nice, and I developed a taste for it in high school. As an ingredient? Suspect. Approach with caution.

  3. Harvey Says:

    It’s not that I mind the flavor, which is good in it’s own right. What irks me is the pretentiousness of the assumption that it is somehow an adequate substitute for chocolate. Or more specifically the insensitivity of the people who would presume to give you white chocolate as a substitute for real chocolate.

    It’s like asking for sugar and having someone hand you a saccharin packet & tell you “it’s every bit as good as sugar”.

    Some needs can’t be filled by substitutes.

    Oooo, don’t get me started.
