Fast Break

Reese's FastBreak It’s not every day a new candy bar comes along. The last memory I have of a new major candy debuting is from the Portland Starlight Parade circa 1981 when people were passing out promotional Twix bars to the crowd. Caramel and cookie covered in chocolate? Oh my. (Do they still do the Oreo version? Now that’s just over the top.) It makes more sense for a nine year old to get excited over new candy than a 29 year old, but some things never change. I’m not even sure if the FastBreak counts as a major invention. It’s not from scratch new, just a variation on the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup theme with added nougat and in stick form. But at four for a dollar at Rite Aid, who’s to argue?
