Dave!As I write this, it's 8:11pm on April 19th, 2011. Thanks to events in Terminator 2, Skynet has just become self-aware and we're all doomed. I, for one, welcome our machine overlords.


You know how when you go to eat a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup how you have to go through all the hassle of removing that stupid brown paper cup? What a horrible waste of time! Who wants to mess with that crap? I buy Reese's Peanut Butter Cups because I want to eat them... not because I want to play around with stupid paper!

Well, the people at Hershey must have felt my pain and frustration, because they've released NEW Reese's Minis. Tiny little peanut butter cups that are UNWRAPPED, just like God intended...

Reese' s Minis!

So now there's no time blown on futzing with that stupid paper cup. You can just tear off the top and pour them into your mouth directly...

DAVETOON Bad Monkey Pours a Bag of Mini Reese's into Lil' Dave's Mouth

Now THAT'S how I eat a Reese's!

Annnnnnnd... SHIT! My entire website is down. Either Media Temple is dicking around with things AGAIN, or Skynet really has become self-aware, and I will never be able to post this entry!

Looks like Blogography has been terminated.   :-(

UPDATE: Annnnnnnd... we're back.

    I saw them advertised the other day and I thought I died and went to Hersey Heaven! Best candy idea ever!

  2. The only problem I am seeing with your timing about SkyNet is that Judgement Day was August 29, 1997. Clearly, Skynet had to be self aware before then in order to attack…from what I recall it was August 4th, 1997. (I’ve seen the movie like oh, 150 times?) Remember Sarah’s flip out on the psych ward doc? “On August 29th 1997 it’s going to feel pretty fucking real to you too. ANYBODY not wearing two million sun block is gonna to have a real bad day, get it?!”

    Dunno where you got April 19th, 2011, unless it was from T3 or the last one with Christian Bale in it…

      From the Terminator Wiki…

      As a result of temporal interference by Sarah Connor, her son John, Miles Dyson, and the T-800 destroyingCyberdyne headquarters and all backups of the research in 1995, the date for Judgment Day is moved to two days after activation on April 21, 2011.


  3. Sarah says:

    Yum! Reese’s!

    • Dave2 says:

      But BETTER. The small size provides a lot of corners and textures in your mouth as you chew them. I can’t describe it, but it “feels” more delicious.

  4. Michelle M. says:

    Damn. That little piece of paper is the only thing standing between me and morbid obesity.

  5. Barnmaven says:

    Why would they make the bag resealable? Its not like there are going to be any left after the first five minutes.

  6. the muskrat says:

    I’m going to put in my request to the Easter Bunny asap.

  7. I am right with you on the stupid wrappers slowing me down and annoying me. This seems like a great idea but maybe a dangerous one since it will be so easy now.

  8. kilax says:

    I saw a commercial for those last night. Is the inside all covered in chocolate? Or it is not very messy?

  9. Uh….. We had the mini Reese’s down here for about 4 months now. Did they JUST get around to sending them up your way?? That’s criminal!! Someone should be flogged!!!!

  10. Ren says:

    I’ve been aware of these new Reese’s for a while now, but I keep not seeing them at the store when I’m in the mood to buy them. I think I may have seen them one time when I had the willpower to resist. I’m shocked it took them this long to come up with the idea, unless they had to figure out some special formulation of chocolate to keep the ridges in the package.

  11. john says:

    I’m not worried about Skynet. The printers in my office have paper jams all the time. What is going to happen when a machine has to reload a machine gun?

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new Reese’s Minis! I won’t allow myself to buy them anymore. They go down way too easy.

  12. Sybil Law says:

    I am so glad you weren’t terminated!

  13. bobo says:

    Somehow as a kid I was unaware of the paper wrappers and ingested probably half a dozen or so (possibly even in one sitting) before someone pointed it out and made fun of me.

    There’s also the possibility that this event was a dream, because I really can’t see how I’d have eaten paper, especially seeing as how my babysitter taught us that eating paper turned you into a tree and I was incredibly stressed about this also about how the trees in our front yard couldn’t even answer me re whether they used to be little boys or girls.

  14. flufficat says:

    I have to try those Reese’s minis. I am something of a Reese’s connoisseur and I find that I prefer the ratio of chocolate to peanut butter of the minis to the regulars. I am also enjoying the egg shaped minis ratio as well. I agree that the whole unwrapping is annoying but it also makes me aware of how many I am eating which is probably a good thing.

  15. usedtobeme says:

    I have purchased|consumed|repurchased the new Reeses Minis. Greatest. Invention. EVER. EV.ER.

    Just sayin…

  16. martymankins says:

    They gave away bags of those Reese’s minis at CES this year. I got at least 4 (my wife took one of the bags that I know of). Tasty little morsels.

  17. sizzle says:

    It is very, very dangerous for me to know those Reese’s minis exist.

  18. I think Ty-man would sell his body for a case of those. Hmmm, might have to go buy some for him. 😉

  19. Invader_Stu says:

    Skynet goes live on the same day that GLaSOD gets re-activated. Coincidence? I think not.

  20. Avitable says:

    They’re terrible for me because I can eat soooo many soooo quickly!
