Speaking of Marmite and Vegemite, who likes Reese's Peanut Butter Cups?

http://www.freestufffinder.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Free-Reese%E2%80%99s-Peanut-Butter-Cups.jpg

You might be wondering what this has to do with Marmite or Vegemite. The answer: absolutely nothing. But this is MBFF, and sometimes it switches gears for no apparent reason.

9 Reese's Peanut Butter Cup variants you might not have known about

Big Cup w/nuts - an oversized version of the traditional cup (with nuts)

All they're missing is the Vegemite cup.

@ Marmite chicken
Mmm... it looks good, even if I still have no idea what Marmite tastes like from first hand experience. =P

@ Reese's flavors
I guess I have to pay more attention to the candy aisle... I've never seen any of these varieties before! I've seen the regular big cup without the nuts, but that's the closest I've come to any of them.

The banana creme one reminds me of Elvis Donuts...

That's what Reese's needs... a BACON flavor. =O

Yesss...!

That half-pound cup weighs more than a baseball. I like Reese's, but I don't know if I like them that much.

Banana and bacon on donuts? I would consider anyone who ate all 6 of those to be a national hero.

I'll give it 5 years.

But what Reese's really needs is a true Elvis flavor. Peanut butter, banana, and bacon. Just like the donuts you've posted, or the sandwich that I'm about to mention just below.

Banana, bacon, and peanut butter. The holy trinity itself. Just ask this "Elvis" sandwich.

The fact that the sandwich has its own Wikipedia page shows that this thing might not be as bizarre as it may seem.

Then again, haggis has its own page as well, so we can't be too quick to judge either way...

If they served that in a local restaurant, I would not mind being 50-100 pounds heavier if I got to eat that every day.

@ Fried Elvis sandwich
Whatever the Calorie count on that thing is, it can't be anywhere near that of the fool's gold loaf!

http://www.supersizedmeals.com/food/images/articles/20071031-Fools_Gold_Loaf_2.jpg

One entire jar of peanut butter, one entire jar of grape jelly, and a pound of bacon, all served on a hollowed out loaf of bread, weighs in, according to most sources, somewhere between 5,000 and 10,000 Calories... though I would lean closest to Food.com's estimate of 5,530.

One thing's for sure, though... Subway would be the subject of even more lawsuits if they added this monster to their menu!

Aren't we glad this on the right isn't a size of drink served anymore?

Whoever is buying the Double Gulp are the same people who would enjoy a fool's gold loaf.

But the Double Gulp is only 64 oz, or was before they cut it to 50. 7-11 and other convenience stores have since beaten it.

Gulps of any large variety would complement a peanut butter bacon burger quite nicely. I would hate to see the person who could fit both of those things in their stomach, but there would be a lot of that person to see.

It's food that actually looks like it's vomiting.
