Move Over Reese’s—There’s Now A New Grown-Up Peanut Butter Egg

Who says Easter candy is just for kids?

Kid or not, one of the sweetest things about Easter is—and has been since 1966—the annual return of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg. There is just something about the thick, peanuty goodness that tastes better than a normal peanut butter cup—not that those aren’t amazing, too.

Now, there’s a new egg in town though—and this one is for adults. No, it’s not spiked with alcohol, but it is packaged up in a fancier, less kid-friendly wrapper.

Ethel M Chocolates has introduced a Peanut Butter Egg Collection. That’s right, a collection—meaning more than one egg comes in this elegant Easter present. There are eight eggs to be exact—four are milk chocolate, four are dark chocolate. (We won’t tell if you count the box as one giant egg, though.)

The secret to their peanut butter eggs is that they grind their peanut butter fresh, in-house daily. Then, they coat the eggs in chocolate. According to the product details, “The Peanut Butter Egg Collection is the perfect treat for those who like eating peanut butter straight out of the jar.” Count us in!

The eggs are preservative free, shipped in insulated coolers and ice for peak freshness and always shipped via express shipping. Ethel M Chocolates also says they are powered by the sun, meaning these eggs are made with solar energy.

 

If peanut butter’s not your thing, Ethel M also offers fruit eggs. These eggs are the same as the peanut butter ones, but are infused with strawberry and raspberry filling instead.

The eight-egg box (peanut butter or fruit) costs $24.99, with estimated shipping around $9.99. You can register on their website to receive discounts.

If that’s a bit out of your Easter budget price range, there are plenty of homemade peanut butter egg recipes online. Or, of course, the good ‘ol standby Reese’s egg is still available through Easter.
