Gal Gadot has undeniably accomplished some pretty awesome feats in her lifetime (just see Wonder Woman’s record-breaking stats for proof). Yet there’s one surprising thing the actress/superhero, who will be soon be returning to the big screen for the Wonder Woman sequel, has never done until now: Eat a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
While it may seem hard to believe that the 32-year-old has never before tasted one of our all-time favorite treats, as the Israeli-born actress explained, she only moved to the US with her husband and two daughters just last year, so we *guess* we can see how such a travesty might have happened.
Not only are they thrilled to partake in the ritual of dressing up this year (Gadot’s daughter wants to be a zombie), but they’re also getting prepped to try all sorts of American candy that they’ve never had before… including Reese’s.
The Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice star visited The Tonight Show on Thursday to chat about her upcoming Saturday Night Live hosting gig (airing October 7, at 11:30pm/10:30c on NBC), where host Jimmy Fallon, who caught wind of her chocolate plight, was downright giddy to find out what she thinks of the peanut butter concoction.“I feel like Willy Wonka, I’m just so excited right now,” he joked. “This is fantastic.”
While it was certainly a far cry from her favorite native candy, which she described as a chocolate bar with Pop Rocks inside called Shokolad Para, or “Chocolate Cow,” (say what!), she also pretty seemed darn impressed with what Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups had to offer. With a smile, nod, and thumbs up, she declared. “That is really good. I can’t believe I’ve never tried it,” she marveled.
Watch the hilarious take below!
