Recently, we ranked American candy bars in order, from worst to best. You all, as ever, had some thoughts on our selections. Aside from insisting that many English candy bars should have been on the list (which is why we stipulated American since English candy bars beat American candy bars by a million taste points), the main source of complaint was that we didn't include Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Reese's are a beloved candy around here, and the reason they weren't included is simple. They are not candy bars. They are cups. They live in a class of their own and as such, deserve their own list. Since Reese's never met a brand extension they didn't feel like exploring, we decided to pit this marvel of modern candy-making against its brethren. Here, you'll find some of Reese's most well-known candies, ranked from worst to best.
