Sure, there's peanut butter, there's Nutella, but now there's a new sweet-n-salty spread in town, and it's from the king of mixing PB and chocolate, Reese's. But how does it taste? Our team couldn't resist digging in to the Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate spread. Parent company Hershey's boasts that the spread tastes great with bacon, banana chips, fruit, pita chips, pretzels and vanilla wafers — we even sampled it by the spoonful.

After dipping and scooping, these were our verdicts:

LOVED IT
"This spread tastes like you’re connecting with a higher level of peanut-butter-and-chocolate-induced existence that will help your subconscious uncover where you left your keys, your true purpose in life or whether Kim Kardashian is pregnant. But on a very literal level, this spread tastes like the melted Reese’s you ate that time you left a bag of them in your car." — Elizabeth Murray

"It’s delish! I’d eat it with pretzels (with salt? yum!) or bread (like Nutella), but honestly I’m fine eating it in bulk by the spoonful." — Lauren Sullivan

"It tastes like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. I don’t see how anyone could not think that it’s delicious." — Amy Eley

"It tastes like if I were to blend a Reese’s Cup and put the contents in a jar and eat it. Essentially, it has the taste and consistency of a blended Reese’s Cup in one spoonful." — Rachel Becker

"It tastes exactly like what you would expect from the Reese's brand. A perfect ratio of chocolate and peanut butter, just as a spread instead of a cup. The company has some stiff competition from Hershey's and Nutella, but I couldn't be happier with the flavor. Only one real question remains — what do I spread it on? It tastes amazing. If you like Reese's, you'll like this spread." — Brandon Goodwin

“It tastes like melted-down Reese’s Puffs, and really, there’s no higher compliment than that. If you like Reese’s, you’ll like this.” — Matt Murray

"The Reese’s spread was delicious. It tastes like the milk left over in the bowl after eating Reese’s Puffs cereal. It didn’t have much of an aftertaste, like Nutella does, and could have been creamier. But I would definitely have it again, on a sugar cookie or a piece of toast! " — Rachel Ungarino

"It tastes like melted Reese's, but I don't taste the peanut butter in there. Maybe just a hint... Really good on the Nilla Wafer. I would buy it for my kids." — Jane Weaver

MEH
"It's OK." — Kyle Michael Miller

LOVED IT, BUT WITH A WARNING
"It’s what I imagine you would get if you put Reese’s Pieces in a blender with some Nutella. Pretty tasty in a junky way, and a nice combo with something salty. BUT: The ingredient list is a bit horrifying though — first ingredient: sugar! And there is hydrogenated vegetable oil (read: trans fat)." — Megan Steintrager
