The Guilty Pleasure: Peanut Butter Cup Oreos
Where to Get It: Grocery stores, Target, Walmart, anywhere cookies are sold
Price: $3 (roughly, varies by store)
What it Really Costs: An intervention after becoming addicted to a cookie/candy combination that actually works
Have you ever been eating a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and thought "Man, this would be so much better if there was some crunchy chocolate cookie on each side of it"?
Maybe you've even gone as far as making a sandwich out of a pair of chocolate wafers and a Reese's or licking the creme out of an Oreo and sliding the Reese's into the middle of it.
Well, now you don't have to look like a weirdo in front of your friends. Your days of removing the creme from Oreos to make Reese's sandwiches are over, as Nabisco has decided to do the work for you.
The Peanut Butter Cup Oreos taste exactly like they should, like a creamy Reese's sandwiched between two Oreo cookies.
Does it taste like chocolate and peanut butter? Yes — but it tastes like Reese's chocolate and peanut butter, not like the previous attempts at chocolate creme and peanut butter creme Oreos.

And if you ask us, that's a good thing (because Reese's are delicious), and it'd probably be a disappointment if Nabisco put the Reese's logo on the front of the package and didn't deliver a similar-tasting product.
Basically, if you like Reese's (see: you have tastebuds) and you like Oreos (once again, see: you have tastebuds), you're going to enjoy the Peanut Butter Cup Oreos. Add in some milk, as they'll definitely make you thirsty, and the creamy Reese's taste between the crunch of the Oreo cookies makes for a fairly addictive snack.
You may want to consider buying two packages, as we went through an entire row the first time we sat down to try them. They're allegedly limited edition, which is probably a good thing for America's ever-expanding waistline.
