    from what i remember of the things they were peanut butter and chocolate flavored like a reeses peanut butter cup but they were shaped like a pringles pottato chip.

    truth be told at the time i saw them on the market i developed a rather insatiable sweettooth for the stuff.

    i remember seeing the things at the local gas station bout a year or so back but since then i havn't seen the little buggers since.

    anybody got the inside story as to what happened?

    ...timeout, I thought you meant a Chocolate/Peanut Butter Dinobot Swoop there for a second with melt in your hand action... (I quadruple dog dare somebody to make one!)

    Well, Wikipedia lists all the flavors ever, then gives you a link to the Swoops site. Which according to Hershey's doesn't exist anymore...

    Yeah, I thought this was a misplaced, mispelled thread about KO Swoop also.

    I have no idea what these are or what happened to them. Sorry.

    I'm wondering what happened to the "Bites" too. My wife loved the Reese's Bites, but they just don't seem to exist anymore.

    You all must try the new Reeses Whips. Squishy heaveness. Only Wal Mart here in town carries them.

    I LOVED Reeses Swoops. They're gone now, though...

    I suspect the Swoops and Bites probably didn't travel or store all that well. Too easy to squish the Bites that's for sure...and the Swoops probably melted into lumps pretty easily.

    I didn't like 'em, because I kept expecting them to taste like a tater chip.
