What do you get when one of America’s favorite nostalgic snacks teams up with one of America’s favorite candies? A tasty treat sure to drive you wild (hint hint).

Still rolling on a high since the release of their line of frozen treats, Reese’s has announced a new addition to their lineup: Reese’s Dipped Animal Crackers. Lions and tigers and bears, oh yum!

Each bite-sized cracker comes covered in Reese’s peanut butter and dipped in milk chocolate for a truly delicious mash-up of flavors. They aren’t monkeying around with this one, folks — flavors like this should be ill-eagle.

Personally, I have been Team Reese’s from a very young age. Even today, with all these fancy gourmet peanut butter cups everywhere you turn, I still reach for a pack of Reese’s when the candy craving hits. I also have distinct memories of my chubby childhood hands gripping tight to the rope handle of that faux cardboard train car of animal crackers as I stumbled around the house. I could not have dreamed up a better combination of my youthful snack cravings if I tried.

This new mash-up is sure to make folks howl in delight, and it comes on the heels of a number of other edible collabs. For example, Krispy Kreme recently announced a series of limited edition donuts in partnership with Biscoff cookies and Post Cereal has teamed up with Disney for two new cereals in celebration of Disney’s 100th anniversary. Let’s all cross our fingers for more delicious friendships in the months to come!

The new Reese’s Dipped Animal Crackers are available right now nationwide and online, so quit horsin’ around and go grab yourself a bag. They’re sure to be an un-bear-ably good time for your taste buds. To be honest, I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to go back to plain animal crackers after this — they might just be a little boaring. And yes, I’m making these animal puns on porpoise.
