Reese’s® Creamy Peanut Butter.
I bought this item as a Valentine’s Day present for my mother, whose favorite candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Today the package arrived and upon tasting it, I discovered it tastes nothing like the candy. Now I’m stuck with a case of this stuff when Jiff is tons better. Bottom line is if you are buying this because you think it’ll taste like Reese’s, don’t. It’s average peanut butter with the Reese’s name stamped on it. No wonder why they don’t sell it in stores.
I was told that Reeses Creamy Peanut Butter tasted like the filling of a peanut butter cup. Delightful, I thought, but not something that I’d want to use every day. I finally decided to acquire a jar of the stuff, however, as a good treat to add to ice cream.
This peanut butter is nothing like the filling of a Reeses peanut butter cup. It is, in fact, regular peanut butter. It isn’t bad. It is quite good. But so are many other brands of peanut butter. I don’t taste any difference between this and store brand. So given the price difference, I say just skip it.
When I bought this product I was hoping that it would actually taste like the peanut butter filling inside the actual candy but this peanut butter tastes just like a plain peanut butter, nothing that special. It is a nice peanut butter but not really something I would buy again. I much prefer the natural peanut butters as they have more of a peanut taste to them. I think it is just because I have gotten so use to real peanut butter that my taste buds just dont get a thrill from this PB. So dont expect this to be like the candy bar, because in no way does it come close to that, still its an ok PB. I am glad that I tried it, but I am going to stick to the natural PB’s and save this for the customers who actually love this stuff.
I’ve always wondered why Reese’s didn’t have a peanut butter and well, now they do! You can open a jar of this stuff, put it next to every other brand and NONE of them can compare to color, freshness, etc. I’ve used this stuff for years and won’t use anything else for my gourmet peanut butter fudge. It makes such a HUGE difference in the taste, that I actually tossed out a batch of my famous fudge when I substituted another brand and the results were terrible! It is so amazing to me how one brand can make that much difference in how a recipe can turn out, or not, as in this case. Can’t recommend this stuff enough – it’s loved in this house. Highly, highly recommend!
We love Reeses peanut butter (though we loved the crunchy even more, but it was discontinued a few years ago) However it’s really hard to find in Manhattan for some reason, every supermarket and bodega around me doesn’t carry it, and we’ve tried countless other brands but none of them were salty, sweet and creamy enough, (and Reeses is never oily!) So I was thriled to buy this 6 pack from Amazon – we can get our fix and not get anxious as the jar empties… there’s another one waiting in the cupboard! Arrived very quickly and we’ll definitely order again!
We ordered this again in March 2011 and it came quickly and reliably.
I was so thrilled that I could get Reese’s creamy peanut butter. I live in Utah and no stores close to me sell. When I first moved here 9 years ago I found it at Wal Mart but they no longer carry it. This is the best peanut butter. So keep up the good work, so I am able to order it again and again. Thanks again. Mary Grace Bussian
Since I’ve been having no luck at the grocery stores (I’ve checked in 3 states!) and my family’s addicted to this delicious peanut butter, I’m so glad to find it on line. We’re loving our first 6-pack and will likely order more so we never run out. According to the mftr it’s still being made, but I’ve not been able to find or order it through my grocers (tho they’ve tried). Great product, great taste!
I love Reese’s Peanut Butter. I had to resort to ordering a half-case online because local stores no longer carry this product.

The only thing related to Reese’s cup in this jar, is the name. Its your plane old, everyday boring Peanut butter. I really wish I could have gotten my money back from the grocery store, but I gave it to my pet racoons
Oh how I love Reese’s seasonal pumpkins, trees, hearts, eggs (am I missing any?) so I became overly excited when I found that they offer peanut butter in jars. I read the reviews and knew not to expect it to taste just the middle part of their candy, but I was hoping for something…more…better… The taste is okay. It didn’t taste very fresh and it seemed waxy, or maybe they used cheap oil or something. I am a huge fan of Skippy Natural, and Reese’s didn’t even come close. I am almost embarrassed that I gave some of the jars away to friends and family. Needless to say, I will never buy this product again. However, I ADORE, love, and am completely addicted to their seasonal candy.
I got hooked on Reese’s peanut butter a couple of years ago, but it seems to be harder and harder to find in the regular stores. I was very glad to find it on line, but I do think this was a scalper’s price. That doesn’t mean I won’t buy it again, but I just wanted you to know I think it is too expensive.
When Hershey’s First Came Out With An Actual Reese’s Creamy Peanut Butter in A Jar (“Crunchy” Too), I, Like MANY Others, Felt It Was Just Another Exploitative Marketing Tie-In, That Would Quickly Go The Way Of The Reese’s P.B. Cookie Cups;How WRONG I WAS!!
This Is Absolutely THE BEST, Creamy Peanut I’ve EVER Tasted!!
While I’m Glad That It’s At Least STILL Available Online (If NOW DC’d From Grocery Store Distribution), It’s A Shame That It Wasn’t Given The Fair Chance It Deserved; But How Was Anyone Supposed To Know, That This Was The REAL Deal!

I’m down to my last 1/2 jar of Reese’s Creamy Peanut Butter. When I lived in my home state of NH, I could find this peanut butter in my local market. They no longer sell it and I can’t find anywhere that does. I now live in western PA (but no matter where I live, northern NH will still be home!). On a trip to Hershey, PA last year (Hershey makes this peanut butter), I looked in a couple of markets and couldn’t even find it there ): . . . . I also enjoyed the crunchy kind and was sad to learn it’s no longer manufactured. I brought another brand of peanut butter on my recent trip to NH–the stuff didn’t compare; gross and tasteless. I did look for Reeses again in the markets I frequented in NH, but still did not find it. I’m tired of looking in the stores anymore. I signed up for an e-mail to receive a notice when this product is available again.
I am a Reese’s addict during Halloween and Easter and I always stock up I just love there peanut butter but this was not what I wanted, it is nothing like the candy filling and is nothing more than plain old peanut butter in there packaging. Actually I can’t even claim that because well another reviewer was right it has a sort of waxy texture too it that I just can’t put my finger on and I am very sure it has to do with the oil that is used also……
I am a die hard Peter Pan Peanut Butter fan and I will not waste my money on this gimmick again, you have been warned !
After 55 years, I can easily say Peanut Butter is and always has been my favorite food. Having tried many different brands, I’ll have to say that Reese’s is the best. Pretty hard to find now that local stores no longer carry the brand. Hope it stays a staple product from Reese’s.
I love Reese’s Peanut Butter and it’s become impossible to find in my area now, so I decided to order a case of it from Amazon. It’s great having some of this product again, but the price I ended up paying was WAYYYY too high.
I find it sad I cannot find Reese’s peanut butter in the stores were I live. It makes the best cookies and other foods. Peanut butter sandwiches are not the same without it.
I know they had discontinued this item, but every time I would go to the supermarket my bf would look for this, because he lovvvves this stuff. So i did some homework and was glad to find this! Now my bf can rest easy because he has his Reese’s peanut butter…at least for a little while.
If you like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, you will love this peanut butter. It is smooth and creamy. It taste great on toast! Of course, it makes the best peanut butter sandwich in the world. Not to mention the wonderful peanut butter cookie you can make. Amazon is a great place to find anything that is no longer found on your local grocery shelves!!
My husband loves Reese’s peanut butter. Since it is no longer sold in any store in our area I always try to find some for his birthday, Christmas, valentine’s day or whenever. I buy at least two cases and he eats it every night on soda crackers before retiring.
This is real good peanut butter dont get me wrong but dont expect it to taste like the peanut butter you get out of a Reeses cup thats all I’m sayin. I am a “Reese cup freak” people (especially the holiday cups because the peanut butter to chocolate ratio is increased) The Big Cups are awesome too but the chocolate is too thick for me in spots(i know..just how I am)and I love “jar” peanut butter and Reeses in a jar is good but if Reeses was to make the same peanut butter that they make in their cups they would slit their own throat. They sell it because of the name… Resees peanut butter cups are the #1 candybar sold in the world by “almost double” over all other candybars. Their peanut butter filling is a highly guarded secret but it can be duplicated pretty damn close by adding powdered sugar and salt..you gotta experiment with it, give it a few good tries..there ya go people!!
This is, by far, the best peanut butter ever! I happened upon it when grocery shopping. I had no idea Reeses made peanut butter until I found it on the shelf. Next thing I knew, it was gone! I was relieved to find that I could order it on line.
I was looking through some food tasting reviews on a “foodies” website, and noticed the praises of Reese’s Peanut Butter. Having looked at several area stores (and not finding any) I finally made this purchase on Amazon.
After tasting this PB, all I can say is “WOW!” This stuff is very, very tasty. It isn’t really sweet like the PB mixture used in the peanut butter cups – it’s just a really nice, creamy and flavorful PB. Creamy is the only version I’ve found, though I’d like to see a crunchy variety someday. Nice fresh peanutty flavor, and velvety consistency. Very nice!
We have ordered this peanut butter before. We use to be able to buy this peanut butter at our area store but for some reason, it is no longer available and when I contacted the company, I was advised that I could buy it on line. It is so much better than any other peanut butter on the market!
The family likes this peanut butter the best. Yes, we know it is not the same peanut butter in the peanut butter cups. However, it is better than any other we have tried. It is creamy and full of peanut taste. The family now forces me to hunt this type down.
