I can not understand why General Mills would pay so much money to promote Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs with such stupid commercials. Are they directed to individuals with an IQ of 10? What is funny or realistic about someone trying to eat cereal by jamming it through their foreheads or with their tongue stuck to a pole. They are getting too far away from just being a good, enjoyable product, liked by everyone.

When this first came out I liked it, but I thought it was kind of laced or chased by a chemical substrata. Got a box today... excellent! No chemicals, just smooth chocolate flavor and delectable peanut butter just like the 2nd best PB cups out there. (Try a Boyer's PB Cup and You'll understand. ;-) Another Pennsylvania treat!)

This is the cereal that General Mills stole idea from me and my daughter that we sent to them in Feb. 1992. After forging my signature on a release they announced it in Feb. 1994. We campaign against all their products now!

I love Reese's Puff Cereal. It's the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter - who knew it would taste this freakin' good! :)

I bought a box and it was stale. I spend almost 4 dollars on the box and had to throw it in the garbage. My daughter does like the cereal but now I don't want to waste my money buying cereal that's no good and Hannafords says it is all the company's fault. Well, I should get my money back or free cereal.

This was my favorite cereal for the longest time and, strangely, I forgot about until I stumbled on this page. Thanks for the cereal memories!

In my cereal experience, this has to be the King/Prince or Queen/Princess of the cereals meant to be Identical to something else edible. They were so insistent and eger to convince people that it was really Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in a bowl that they actually distanced those people at first.

I remember many conversations where someone would ask about the cereal, the Reese's fanatic would reject it as their Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and within an hour have their hands on "the real Reese's Cups", because " I gotta have my Reese's". Luckily the die hard fans rejected cereal would fall into the hands of another in the household. This is where most people I knew to fall in love with the Cereal came from. People who were not Reese's target consumers but who loved the taste. Even though it failed to be a clone of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, it did have a very unique taste at the time.. and it has gained enough popularity to still be available today.

Fans of Cocoa Puffs seemed to also find themselves interested in Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs,.. some times dropping the "Peanut Butter" before the name change. Another odd thing I noticed is this curiosity in what Reese's Chocolate and Reese's Peanut Butter would taste like alone, this may be because the Chocolate and the Peanut Butter was represented as seperate Puffs. The curiosity about Reese's Peanut Butter did make some stores where I lived begin to carry Reese's Peanut Butter ( after failing to convince customers Reese's didn't make Peanut Butter) and people in my life did start using Reese's Peanut Butter preferably for deserts. There also were a wave of people trying to recreate brand name foods with Reese's Peanut Butter.

I would describe "Reese's Puffs" as a weak sweetness with a chocolate taste that is distinctive and a peanut butter taste that is distinctive. There is not a strong sugar or strong chocolate in them. Easily the Chocolate Puffs will have a hint of Peanut Butter to their taste and the Peanut Butter Puffs with have a hint of Chocolate to their taste. But anyone with good taste buds can tell you the puffs are flavored differently. Both puffs already taste like they have been weakened by milk BEFORE and even WITHOUT milk ever touching them. You can certainly find treats with peanut butter mixed with milk and treats that are milk chocolate to get some idea of this. The Puffs seem weaker or softer then Cocoa Puffs (this is what people like to compare them to) but stronger then and more sphere shaped then Corn Pops, so you might think of them as larger Kix. They some times take longer to turn soggy then Cocoa Puffs but are still tastey when turned soggy by milk and may still be solid in areas.

In all the great Cereal battles, Mascots have seemed a very important ally.. especially with children always being made the goal. This cereal did/does not seem to have a perky Cartoon Character with it's face splattered across the box. Instead, it's had a baking cup lurking in it's images and advertisements. Not exactly the most animated eye catch to pulling in children. Advertisements try hard to convince people to think of it as Reese's check out chocolates, but that hasn't worked out taste wise. Instead, this cereal has actually become popular through word of mouth and rejection. So even though some points should bump down it's rating, I give it a 5 out of 5 because it's purely the cereal that's made it popular.

They can even drop the
Person one: " I'm eatting Reese's.. mmm.."
Person two: " What? Your's having Reese's chocolate // Reese's Peanut Butter cups for breakfast!?!"
Person one: " No, silly. I'm having Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs Cereal."
.. bit and change the.. oh wait, they did change the name.
