If you’re having visions of endless candy aisles and colorful piles of chocolate bars, we’re right there with you.

Ignore your dentist and repeat after us: Candy is comforting and we’ve got word on all the newest comforts coming soon to a candy aisle near you.
Get that economy-sized package of toothbrushes from Costco ready, because we’re heading full force into 2021, ivory chompers ready and willing. Creative twists on classics, brand new flavors, and imaginatively innovative candy fillings are imminent. These massive drops are going to take us from zero to sugar rush heroes quicker than it takes to say “ahh.” Your dentist is gonna have his work cut out for him, but hey, that’s his job, right?
These are the new candy flavors coming out in 2021 that will blow you away.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with Pretzels Miniatures
All hail Harry Burnett Reese, the genius Hershey employee who invented Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups way back in the 1920s. Yes, folks, life has been pretty good since Mr. Reese came up with that winning combination of smooth peanut butter encased in everyone’s favorite addiction, chocolate. This mix of salty and sweet all in one precious disc of deliciousness has endured the test of time and remains one of our favorite candies today.
Some say you can’t improve on perfection, but Hershey, undaunted, has continued to offer up variations on the classic that leave us wanting more every time. Some exciting takes in the past have been Reese’s Take 5s, Reese’s with Potato Chips, Reese’s White Chocolate, Reese’s Thins, and Reese’s Dipped Pretzels. And soon, Hershey’s is dropping another flavor attack on us with Reese’s Big Cups with Pretzels in November 2020, with a miniature version to follow in January.
That’s right, you salty-sweet lovers out there. Reese’s isn’t gonna stop at peanut butter and potato chips. Salty, crunchy pretzels mixed into your peanut butter cups may just be the next-level sweet treat you can look forward to in 2021. Your taste buds will be so delightfully confused, you’ll have to reach for another and then another to get your senses back on track. And who could blame you? They’re miniatures, which means eating less than three is a crime against candy and we just can’t allow that kind of behavior around here.
Snickers Peanut Brownie
Is it even legal for Snickers to keep making more products? Already everyone’s favorite trick-or-treat haul during Halloween, a true token of love on Valentine’s Day, and the self-proclaimed hunger-satisfying candy bar for the ages, Snickers has had a viselike grip on our sugar addictions for who knows how long. What else screams “winning combo” more than sticky caramel and crunchy peanuts on a layer of nougat enrobed in milk chocolate? Something about that creamy, crunchy, chocolatey first bite just takes you from worst to first in less than 60 seconds.
Well, hold on to your hard hats, because this next sugar rush is about to take you through the roof. Are you ready? Three words: Snickers. Peanut. Brownie. We couldn’t believe it was true until we stared at the promo picture for another full minute. Oops, drool puddle. It looks like the creamy nougat is being replaced by a layer of brownie. No big deal or anything. Just the world’s best dessert inserting itself into the candy bar of our waking dreams.
Launching nationwide in January 2021, there’s even a countdown to when these lethal sugar bombs become available. Get your champagne glasses and sparkly pants ready, guys. We can’t wait to kiss our loves when the clock hits zero. Pucker up, Snickers Peanut Brownie, we’re ready for ya!
