Food debates can spark extreme loyalty. One person may prefer to go thirsty than pick that blue cola can over the red one. Although no one should ever be sorry for picking a favorite flavor, it does not mean that they cannot listen to the other side. In the heated Reese’s food debate, will it be Team Crunchy or Team Creamy who will reign supreme in this ultimate candy decision?

A Reese’s Peanut Butter cup might be one of the most iconic candies on the shelf. It might be the perfect ratio of chocolate to peanut butter or the number of bites to eat an entire cup. Even if that classic candy has changed shapes, adapted other flavors, evolved in various ways, one concept continues to divide fans. Should the inside of that cup have creamy peanut butter or crunchy peanut butter?

According to Chris Fenton, Reese’s brand manager, “While you might think you know your peanut butter preference, you need to try them both in a Reese’s Cup – the best way to enjoy peanut butter. With these new Cups, peanut butter lovers will have a delicious way to sound off on one of the most contested disputes. Let the debate begin!”

While the classic candy has a similar flavor, it is the contrast in textures that have people picking a preference. The crunchy option has chunks of peanuts studding the peanut butter filling. While the creamy one is all about the smoothness that makes a luscious bite.

Even though both candies have their merits, one option is preferred over the other and fans must make their vote. Now through May 17, everyone can voice their opinion on and the totals will be updated in real time.
