On Postmodernism and Peanut Butter Cups

Monday, March 21st, 2005 • 4 Comments on On Postmodernism and Peanut Butter Cups

I’m taking a break from my (all day, ongoing) reading on postmodernism theory to ask a very important question:

Why do Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs taste better than Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups?  Is it the shape?  Is it some sort of Easter miracle?  Really, I want to know.

I’m also trying to define the history of the “self.”  Any postmodernist scholars out there?

I have questions, people.  Give me answers.

  • What, are you crazy woman?  The Peanut Butter Egg is way too peanut butter heavy.  They got the distribution all wrong.  The Cup is the perfect blend of choco and PB!!!

    You don’t agree because you know the sybolic meaning behind the egg and Easter.  When Christ rose from the dead, He left behind a PB egg.  His possy didn’t know what to do with it, so they dipped it in chocolate.  And they were happy.

    I think it is because they are fresher-est. Same thing with the Xmas PB trees. Could also be because they are bigger.

    My only problem was when Hershey discontinued the dark chocolate ones.

    Hmm.  As a chocolate lover, I should agree with you.  And yet, I don’t.  I wonder why?
