Reese’s Nutcracker Shapes Are the New Reese’s Egg

A bag of Reese's Nutcracker candies.

Some holidays are marked by specific foods. For example, an argument can be made that Reese’s Eggs are the unofficial candy of Easter (sorry Peeps). Now, Reese’s Nutcrackers are here to take over Christmas.

Just like its original peanut butter cup, Reese’s new nutcrackers are made of a sugary peanut-butter inside and milk-chocolate-coated outside. So, there’s nothing new here, but some have claimed the seasonal Reese’s are better than your average cup.

The Nutcrackers aren’t that big, though. They’re roughly the same size as the brand’s famous trees. They’ll be available individually wrapped nationwide for just $5.99, according to Hershey’s website.

Reese’s and Hershey have even more on the way, though. They’ll soon be launching a donut baking kit, an advent calendar, and, of course, those red-, green-, and gold-wrapped mini peanut butter cups.

If you’re looking for the perfect holiday candy, Reese’s and Hershey have you covered.
