I read that Hershey's is going to start selling a new version of their Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in March that will be 40 percent thinner than the current ones.  Less chocolate, less peanut butter and 40 percent few calories.  No thank you!  Why does Hershey's hate me so much?

I know that we need to be a healthier society.  We need to eat smaller portions, get more diet and exercise, more sleep, and reduce stress.  What we DON'T need is 'diet' Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  I realize I have a problem, Reese's.  You don't need to remind me.

The truth, is once I dig into a pack of your peanut butter cups (or a bag of the mini's) there's no stopping this train. Hershey's started this mess, and now they're trying to fix it. It's simply too late and it won't work.

I'm way past the point of no return. The peanut butter cup, with it's salty creamy delicious peanut butter has acted as a sort of gateway for me. I pretty much melt peanut butter on everything now and carry a jar in my work bag with a spoon (that I may or may not have washed in weeks) so I can dive in at any moment.  I want Reese's PB cups on my cookies, in my ice cream, and mixed into my cheesecake.  Little tin foil wrappers with the logo on it can be found in my house and on the floor of my Jeep.

Recently I became hooked on their dark chocolate peanut butter cups. I've since opted to go from wearing jeans to sweatpants, form fitting shirts to hoodies.  I've altered my lifestyle because of your PB cups.  And now you're telling me that I need to cut back?
So to all my friends at Hershey's, keep your 40% smaller, less calories, less chocolate, and less fat version in the bag.  For the same reason I didn't buy into the Halo Top craze, when it comes to Reese's Peanut Butter cups I'm 100 % all in.
I guess I'll just be sitting here with my fat Reese's Peanut Butter Cups waiting for someone to tell me I'm pretty.
