Not much beats the combination of peanut butter and chocolate in a Reese’s peanut butter cup, but Hershey continues to come up with new ways to make the classic combo even better.

The latest? Reese’s Crunchy Peanut Bar, the peanut butter and chocolate combo you already know, now with peanuts and peanut butter creme for a crunchy and creamy twist on the beloved treat.

The new candy bar is a permanent addition to Reese’s lineup. It is rolling out to retailers nationwide this month in 3.2-ounce king bars for $1.89 each.


The new offering joins a handful of other new Reese’s treats, like white chocolate peanut butter cup thins, peanut butter cups made with no chocolate, Reese’s Big Cups with pretzels and the brand’s first-ever snack cake.

The Reese’s Snack Cakes are made with soft-baked chocolate cake, topped with Reese’s peanut butter cream, then covered in smooth milk chocolate. You can find them in a two-cake pack for around $1.99 at convenience stores nationwide.


Snickers also just revealed a new treat for chocolate lovers: Snickers almond brownie candy bar. Hitting shelves in August, the almond brownie bar will feature a chewy brownie filling mixed with chopped almonds and topped with a layer of caramel, all coated in dark chocolate.

It follows the release of Snickers peanut brownie and Snickers peanut brownie ice cream bar, which are both available in stores nationwide. The peanut brownie features a chewy peanut-brownie filling, a layer of caramel and a classic Snickers chocolate coating, while the ice cream is brownie-flavored with chewy brownie bits, topped with a thin layer of caramel and peanuts and covered in a milk chocolate coating.
