The Definitive 1000

We are going to be counting down the Definitive 1000 things. Why are they Definitive? Because The Friendly Friends have deemed them as such.

#980 - Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

To complete the Halloween Hat Trick I hereby enter the best candy ever made, the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, into the Definitive 1000.

Mr. Scampers, Ph.D., in heaven.

And I know, I know. Back-to-back peanut butter entries in the D-1000. I gotta call 'em like I see 'em.

I'm sitting here, alternating between handing out candy to little panhandlers and watching old Treehouse of Horrors (some of the best Simpsons episodes ever), and it occurs to me:

I'm hoping the kids don't take the PB Cups because I will have to break their hands and take them back. Or lie in wait in the bushes around the corner and steal them back.

I got the Soul-Crushing Massive Amounts of Everything Store-sized assorted Hershey product bag. There are only a few Reese's Cups in there.

Look the whole gang stopped by!

I need to do something about this. I can't deal with the idea that some ungrateful little punks will be eating my Peanut Butter Cups. That sweet, sweet Hershey's chocolate smothering that sweet yet salty peanut butter. They won't understand that you're supposed to freeze them and then bite off the chocolate edges and then eat the middle. They won't savor them the way I....uh....sorry.

Problem solved. I just put them all in the freezer. Now I just need to keep Mrs. Jewbacca away from them.

Due to their awesomeness, I hereby make Reese's Peanut Butter Cups #980 in the Definitive 1000.

These two just knocked on my door. THEY didn't even get Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

Well put! That pretty much sums up why they're so good.

That was a great Joey-esque refrence, ss.

I'd retort with a thick snake quip for you, ss but you've heard it all before and frankly I'd be bringing a knife to a gun fight.
