Whining about how terrible 2020 is turning out to be is probably the most preferred pastime of 2020. And objectively, yes, it has been pretty not so great (pandemic and all). But, but, but, not EVERYTHING is bad. Reese’s is coming in hot before the end of the year to remind us that new things can still be beautiful and great, as they release their brand new snack cake.
Food may be our only saving grace from the pandemic-stained 2020. After all, we now have Lucky Charms selling marshmallows on their own by the bag, Cinnamon Toast Crunch selling their magic Cinnadust, and Cheetos jumping into the mac and cheese game. Reese’s Snack Cake is our latest new comfort food to get us through the day.
They are billing it as the “perfect mid-morning snack” which you can simply translate to your sugar-packed breakfast by either sleeping in until mid-morning or through playing by your own rules because you are an adult and sometimes you just eat a mid-morning snack cake because you can.
It’s the same Reese’s peanut butter you know and love, topped on a soft chocolate cake, and the whole thing is covered in milk chocolate. They are selling in packs of two for $1.99 and have their sights set on chomping into the coffee cake market. Reese’s is basically saying that 2020 is crazy, so why not have cake for breakfast? And honestly, that’s a rock-solid argument. I am here for it.
“We wanted to create the perfect treat for Reese’s fans to satisfy that mid-morning sweet tooth,” said Reese’s spokesman. “We know that sometimes you just don’t want to wait until lunch.”
Not only do I not want to wait until lunch, but I also don’t want to wait until December when these will finally be in stores everywhere.
