Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Honey Theme Week.

It's fair to say that Reese's is a brand name that looms large when it comes to peanut butter and chocolate in the U.S. 

Over the years, The Hershey Company (Hershey, PA) has developed seasonal and other variations on their classic Reese's peanut butter cup, such as today's Flavor of Georgia Honey Roasted Peanut Butter Cups.

Earlier this year the company began offering a "Flavors of America" collection, with versions of traditional candy bars, e.g. the (Texas) BBQ PayDay bar, (California) Strawberry KitKat bar and today's Georgia-themed Honey Roasted Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, that were designed to capture experiences that one might have had with summer foods in six U.S. states.

These milk chocolate peanut butter cups tasted like classic Reese's peanut butter cups, although perhaps a smidge sweeter.* They had the same addictive, peanut butter filling, and smooth, almost silky milk chocolate coating— the stuff of childhood memories.

*Sadly, the ingredients list included lactose, sugar, dextrose and natural flavors, but no real honey.
