When it comes to satisfying a sweet tooth, the combination of chocolate and peanut butter may very well be at the top of a lot of people’s lists.

That includes the popular Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.

But, news about a thinner version of the candy is making some people sour.

Last week during an earnings call, Hershey (the company that makes the sweet treat) said in 2019, it will start selling Reese’s Thins.

According to Business Insider, the candy will be 40% thinner than the regular peanut butter cup.

“It appeals to those consumers who want something sweet with more permissibility,” Michele Buck, Hershey North America’s president, reportedly said during the call. 

Buck said Reese’s Thins will be available in both milk and dark chocolate.

Well, some people — at least on Twitter — aren’t too happy about this latest version of the peanut butter and chocolate combo.
