Context

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups had the great idea of combining or putting together chocolate and peanut butter. When Reese’s combined or joined the two, they created a taste just about everybody loves. I wonder what Reese’s will combine or mix together next—maybe marshmallow and chocolate? I sure hope that they combine or join together two other flavors soon, for it will be a lot of fun to try it out!
