Reese’s Is Releasing a Chocolate-Free Peanut Butter Cup

Not to be outdone by Oreo’s “Chromatica” cookie collab with Lady Gaga, Reese’s has offered up a new candy to cure any snack-related fatigue.

On March 1, Reese’s announced its new Ultimate Peanut Butter Lovers Cups. The name may have tipped you off, but in case you’re still unsure: these peanut butter cups are all peanut butter, no chocolate. The candy brand already upped its peanut butter game in 2019 and 2020 with limited releases of Reese’s Peanut Butter Lovers Cups, which contained even more peanut butter than the originals, but this new launch escalates the chocolate vs. peanut war to the next level. (Though, if you’re a fan of RPBL cups, those are making a 2021 comeback as well).

“Secret’s out…Reese’s Peanut Butter Lovers has gone ULTIMATE,” the official Reese’s account tweeted. 

Basically, instead of the solid chocolate coating surrounding the famous Reese’s soft peanut butter filler, these cups feature a peanut butter-flavored candy exterior. Online responses can mostly be summed up with one word: GIMME.

“I recently became allergic to all chocolate, so hearing this make me so happy,” one user tweeted, while another was thrilled she no longer has to remove the pesky chocolate shell. “OH MY GOD!!!! This is the greatest news,” they tweeted. “I typically peel off the chocolate & only eat the PB center…Thank you.” That does sound like a lot of work when one can simply buy Reese’s brand peanut butter, but that’s neither here nor there. Ultimate Peanut Butter Lovers Cups are coming!

“While launching a Reese’s Cup with absolutely no chocolate might come as a shock, we’re giving the truest peanut butter fans something to go wild about,” Reese’s brand manager Margo McIlvaine said in a statement, per CNN

As for when you can pick up these treats, Reese’s has revealed that the candies will be hitting shelves in April and will be available in various sizes. They will only be around for a limited time, so get them while they’re hot! Well, not so hot that they melt…you know what we mean.

Kelly Marie Tran Loves That Raya And The Last Dragon Changes The Idea Of A Disney Princess

We started with Snow White, where our princess slept and had to be awakened by a prince. Fast forward to Tangled, where our princess chose to leave her tower and held the power in the film but still needed a man’s assistance. There’s nothing wrong with either of these films – I’m a huge Disney fan and love practically all of them. I was even a little sad that Moana and Elsa didn’t fall in love in their respective films. That being said, Raya is a brand new kind of princess, and here is what Kelly Marie shared with CinemaBlend about this:

Nomadland’s Michael Wolf Snyder Is Dead At 35

His father David Snyder was the first to break the news in recent days, telling those near and dear that Michael had not been heard from for a few days. So, David took a trip over to his son’s Queens, NY apartment where he found his son dead. The cause of death was suicide. David Snyder shared more about Michael Wolf Snyder’s final days on Facebook in the “hope that it could help others,” noting,

Rihanna Got Curtain Bangs, and Unsurprisingly She Looks Amazing

Rihanna is a lot of things: a singer, an actor, the founder and owner of multiple blockbuster businesses, a lingerie designer, the list goes on. Her résumé is an impressive one already, but she’s recently added one more title to the roster: magician. Earlier this week, Rihanna revealed a new campaign for her intimates brand, Savage x Fenty, featuring herself as a model with a wildly different hairstyle than what we expected. 

Although Rihanna recently got a mullet haircut—and is still rolling with it as her posts suggest—the new campaign features her with waist-length hair, soft layers, and curtain bangs that fall at her lash line. 

While we’d like to think that Rihanna possesses some kind of strange hair-growth superpower (if she had a comic book origin story, she would’ve had some strange accident at a B vitamin supplement factory), we know that’s not actually the case. There are a few possibilities as to how Rihanna could have pulled off this crazy-quick transformation, but it’s likely the work of a wig

Whatever the hairstyle, cut, or color, I’m pretty sure everyone will agree when we say that this woman always looks damn incredible.

Daisy Ridley Explains What Seeing Tom Holland’s Thoughts Looked Like On Chaos Walking’s Set

This weekend’s latest theatrical release sees Patrick Ness’ award-winning novel The Knife of Never Letting Go get the big-screen adaptation treatment with Doug Liman’s Chaos Walking. The movie, starring Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley and Spider-Man’s Tom Holland, is a high-concept science fiction story about a new settlement away from Earth, which is made up of men plagued by a mutation that puts all their thoughts on display. When Ridley’s character crash lands on the planet, she is faced with the perpetual “Noise” of unfiltered thoughts, especially from Holland’s character. But what was Ridley actually looking at when the actors were on set?

Chaos Walking Ending Explained: What Happened And How It Sets Up A Potential Sequel

What Happened At The End Of Chaos Walking

Chaos Walking’s two heroes are challenged by two villains, Mads Mikkelson’s Davis Prentiss and David Oyelowo’s Aaron, all whilst trying to send a signal to Viola’s base in space. Let’s start off off with Oyelowo’s villainous preacher character, who is driven by a god complex and the belief that women are a sin. His violent noise has driven him to insanity. After pursuing Todd and Viola throughout the movie, his evilness is made apparent when he kills off Todd’s sweet doggo, Manchee, during a river chase sequence. Aaron taunts Todd and Viola, but it’s Viola who ends up getting blood on her hands in defense of Aaron’s attack on the abandoned ship in the third act.

Sounds Like Coming 2 America’s Eddie Murphy Already Has An Idea For A Third Film

Given that Coming 2 America was over three decades in the making, it’s not surprising that Eddie Murphy revealed a somewhat lengthy timeline for the next film. So if Murphy wants to wait until he’s 75 for another sequel, then fans will just have to wait a few more years. There’s no telling where a storyline would go with this new film though, with the new characters and relationships established, there’s an infinite amount of possibilities for another film.

Why Marvel’s Frank Grillo Originally Turned Down Appearing In Avengers: Endgame

The trajectory of Crossbones took a turn and he was out of the series really quickly, right?And I was a little pissed off about it because, y’know, I signed a seven-picture deal with them. And it was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to be part of the Marvel Universe, right?’ And it didn’t happen. And so they called me and they said, ‘Look, we need you to come down for a week for Avengers,’ and I’m like, ‘For what?’ And they go, ‘Well, we can’t…’ I’m like, ‘No, I’m not doing it.’ So I hung up. I get a call back. I’m like, ‘I’m not coming. Leave me alone’ And like… who am I? Who am I, right?
