Reese’s is unleashing a new peanut butter cup that comes with crushed-up POTATO CHIPS inside.

A photo of them leaked online last year, so we knew they were coming.  Or, we hoped the rumors were real at least.  But now it’s official.

It sounds like they’re only doing them as a “Big Cup.”  That’s their king size version that’s bigger and thicker than a normal Reese’s.  And the chips look like generic Ruffles.

They should be rolling them out to stores nationwide soon.  So look for them in the candy aisle. This isn’t the first time they’ve done something like this.  Last year, they started selling a Big Cup Reese’s with crushed-up pretzels mixed in.

That’s fairly close to what’s in a Take 5 bar though.  So a peanut butter cup with crushed-up potato chips is a little

more revolutionary.
