in search of reese’s peanut butter cups

A few years ago my sister went to the States. When she came back, she got me some Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups which I thought was the greatest thing, EVAR!

Then I found out that such a great thing like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are unfortunately not available in Malaysia.

THE TRAGEDYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh well, I got over it, I mean it’d been more than 6 or more years. Besides I don’t really crave for chocolate… much.

Then KY went and blogged about it, memories returned and I craved for the damn thing for a few days, and finally decided to take matters into my own hands.

I decided to make a trip to Singapore.

After all, it was the Raya holidays, I have one week off, so why not? Singapore has a large expat community, they are jolly good friends with the USA, surely they would stock the best-selling candy in the States in abundance! No-brainer, right?

Well… allow me to save you time, money and effort by telling you that you won’t have such luck at Singapore’s Marketplace (both Paragon and City Hall), Cold Storage (Takashimaya), Vivo Mart and Candy Empire (Vivo City).

I was about to give up in despair when my Pinky nudged me to have a quick browse at The Cocoa Trees at Suntec City.

The Cocoa Trees candy shop

Browse browse browse… and lo and behold!!!

Reese's peanut butter cup at last

Sure, it’s only the miniatures, sure it’s S$6.30 per 85g pack… but when you find something that defines the purpose of life, you shouldn’t be picky at all.

I was of course, ecstatic πŸ˜€

Even Rich, a non-chocolate lover, loved it πŸ˜€

Well I am happy, for now. But my happiness will not last very long (when my limited supply runs out πŸ™ ) So if any of you would like to donate to keep this blog OWNER running, please consider sending me lots and lots of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, especially if you are in the States. For contact details, please e-mail me πŸ˜€

  3. oi shareee

  4. Adoi! The trip for the love of Reese’s..

  5. AND YOU DIDN’T BUY ME ANY?????

    HOW COULD YOU?????

  6. Sugar free, must taste like poop?

  7. hmm… looks nice… should try it out.. πŸ˜‰

  8. sugar free???????? apa lah……americans cant make good chocolates……it taste like some industrial gooey stuff with choc coloring and flavoring……and some more sugar free…..

  9. What good is globalization when you can’t even get candy that we hand out by the fistfuls to all the little kiddies on Halloween. E-mail me your address and I’ll ship you some. And not the sgar-free kind.

  10. Those are tiny – we call them “Reese Miniatures” over here. However, I’ll bet they’re damn good – Reese PBCs are one of my vices as well!

    The greatest thing EVAH – “Reese Bites” (http://www.hersheys.com/products/details/bites.asp). [drool] I’m hooked!

    Cheers,

    Ted

  11. ok. no more beer for you for next’s years budget.

    peanut butter cups?

  12. A friend from KL mentioned that they have it in KLCC from time to time, should be at the supermarket. Why don’t you check it out?

    I always have some in my fridge, replenished weekly!

    Best Wishes!

  13. Another Reese lover, eh? =)

    Min is right, they have it at KLCC but it gets sold out pretty fast. The stall is at the concourse level near Rotiboy/the LRT entrance-exit.

  14. U sure they have it in KLCC? I used to work in KLCC but never came across Reesers.

    Wahai Saudari Suanie,

    Harap saudari dapat menguatkan iman agar boleh terus berusaha untuk menguruskan diri mu. Akan tetapi sempena bulan Syawal yg mulia ini telah menjelma, izinkan abang Bond menunjukan saudari Suanie jalan untuk mendapat coklat Reese’s yg TERAMAT lazat itu dengan sewenang-wenangnye…

    Berikut adalah langkahΓƒβ€šΓ‚Β² yg perlu dilakukan :-
    1. Get your seefat to 1U Old Wing.
    2. Proceed to the underground/LG level.
    3. Sprint to the tunnel that link to the new Wing.
    4. There should be only 1 chocolate specialty shop on your left and it is on the same row with Roti Boy, Osim, Lo Hong Ka etc. If you’ve reach the Pets Wonderland, you’ve gone too far.
    5. Once you enter the shop, make an immediate left and stop once you reach the second shelf.
    6. Voila.
    7. Selamat Hari Raya.

    p/s: Maaf bebanyak pasal gua lupa nama kedai tu. Dah mula nyanyuk la katakan. =)

    Salam,
    Aku adalah Jamil Bond.

  16. Very yummy

  17. babeeeh.

  20. Shadowfox: on-going ar πŸ˜€ just lack of updates

    Pinky: of course!

    reta: tak nak! πŸ˜›

    Suertes: haha an excuse only lah

    KY: I just did πŸ˜€

    ST: nah, was good πŸ™‚

    sotong: steal from ky lah

    RonT: ar? nah it was good πŸ˜‰

    mad: YAYYYYY YOU ROCKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!1111111111111

    Ted: they are great!

    ahseng: har? don’t la liddat…. πŸ˜›

    Min: it’s a bit of an odd thing, come to think of it. when you are in KL, you can’t be bothered to look for it that much, always assuming that it’s not avaialble in kl, partly because you have no time to search for it. but in another country, you have all the time in the world and do this kind of things. i guess that’s why lor πŸ˜€

    sooyin: i *think* i know where that is, thanks πŸ˜€

    iblogtogod: now you see it now you don’t lor

    Jamil Bond: Oo thanks for the tip πŸ˜€

    James: Indeed

    Vagus: ok, will haunt you πŸ˜‰

    stupe: did u search the whole building? πŸ˜€

    The Snark: kekeke jelesnyer πŸ˜›

  21. Are you sure you want many people donating to this wonderfully addictive 100 calorie a bite habit??
    πŸ™‚

  22. I sure can send you loads of it. Hahahaha. Just gimme your add.

  23. suan – i search from below, starting from LRT exit until 4th floor kina book store…kenot find…

  24. J: why not πŸ˜‰

    Niki: oO thankss

    stupe: hahahha damn kesian

  25. You can get the Reese Miniatures (Sugar Free) at the KLIA Choc n Shop (right before baggage claims) for RM11.90. Just got some myself on the way back.

  26. Giant Sotong says:

    It’s confirmed – 1U’s Cocoa Trees does sell them (one small bag = RM14.90). However, the salesgirl did say that stock replenishment was uncertain.

  27. Stumbled across your website, can’t remember why or how.

    But check out my latest post on my blog. You won’t regret it. Or you might.

    I’m evil >:)

  28. You can find Reeses cups at Ampang Grocers most of the time. Be careful, some of the bags haven’t been stored well so they have melted and then re-solidified, which makes the chocolate go all waxy and gross. Just feel it, and if the cups inside the bag don’t feel like they’re shaped properly, they’ve probably been melted at one point during shipping or storage.

    Ampang Grocers is a small shop in Persiaran Ampang (near Ampang point, but on the town side of MRR2). Despite its size, when it comes to foreign treats (particularly American), it makes all the other shops in KL (I’m talking to YOU, Mister Hock Choon) look like roadside maruku vendors. Biggest and best breakfast cereal collection this side of Seinfeld.

  29. Hi!

  2. […] We then went to the city centre to begin an exhaustive search for Reese’s peanut butter cups. Gave up, had a break at Starbucks, then Pinky had to tend to a prior engagement. I asked my cousin who is studying in Singapore if she wanted to meet up. She said yes, and we had dinner at Bugis. […]
