Reese's Bat Stuff

"You got Batman in my peanut butter! You got peanut butter in my Batman!" Sounds a lot worse than it actually is. Reese's comes to the Dark Knight party a little late with both the Special Edition Reese's Pieces and the Special Edition Reese's Peanut Butter Bat.

To be fair these have probably been out for a while but a Sunday trip to the Dollar Store almost always leads to blog fodder. The Peanut Butter Bat is the clear winner here as it makes the extra effort of actually taking the shape of a bat...or a bat shaped object...ok, maybe it's not perfect but it certainly edges out the Reese's Pieces.

Apparently making the colors black and blue somehow make it related to Batman. They're still good but they don't exactly scream, "Batman!"

While I'm on the topic of Gotham, we at the Comic Book Literacy Documentary are planning a trip to New York City this summer to shoot interviews for the documentary. We're putting the word out that we will be looking for New York based comic book professionals and educators to interview for the film. Interested? Contact us.
