Reese’s Is Selling a Gigantic Peanut Butter Cup for Thanksgiving — And It Deserves a Spot on Your Table
With Thanksgiving just a little over a week away (where did this year go?) it’s time to start thinking about what foods will be gracing your dinner table (if you haven’t done so already!). On the dessert front, pumpkin, pecan, and apple pie are enduring staples, but Reese’s is making the case for peanut butter and chocolate.
The makers of the iconic peanut butter cup have supersized their OG creation into a 3.4-pound “pie” of solid peanut butter and chocolate. Naming it the Reese’s Thanksgiving Pie, this is the largest Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup ever made for sale and it’s only around for a limited time.
The 9-inch pie comes in a festive box adorned with leaves and includes the message “You can thank us later” on the opening flap while “Thankful yet?” can be found on the inside flap. The pie itself comes in a plastic dish that mimics the brown paper wrapping on a regular Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup and is sealed in plastic to ensure freshness. The Reese’s Thanksgiving Pie is most definitely made for sharing, and while the suggested serving size may only be 160 calories, there are about 48 servings per pie. If you can’t get through the entire pie this Thanksgiving though, don’t fret — it can be stored at room temperature and has a recommended shelf life of six months.
“When you bring together friends and family for Thanksgiving dinner, no table spread is complete without dessert,” Bo Jones, senior associate brand manager at Reese’s, said in a press release. “At Reese’s, we wanted to create a dessert that everyone wants a piece of.”
If you’re looking to try one of these pies yourself, you’re in luck because they’re available beginning today for just $44.99 (plus tax). Only 3,000 of these pies will be available for purchase on the Hershey’s site, however, so if you want one, you need to act fast.
