Justin’s Super Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Yes, please!

For the longest time, the only conventional candy I’d touch would be those peanut butter cups covered in bright orange wrappers. Not anymore. I think their formula changed a few years back. I now find the peanut butter flavorless, and the chocolate flat tasting and greasy. Not to mention this brand is full of suspect ingredients.

But I didn’t want to forego my peanut butter and chocolate addiction. I mean, is there a better combination out there?!

Enter Justin’s Super Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Gluten Free, and USDA Organic with Rainforest Alliance Cocoa, one bag contains six individually wrapped cups (each cup is .7 oz). A treat without the guilt, one cup has just 5 grams total sugar.

The formulation of these makes a chocolate and peanut butter lover like myself proud. The peanut butter filling was smooth, creamy, and not too sweet with the perfect touch of salt. The 80 percent cacao chocolate shell has an unexpected but welcomed hint of bitterness.

Justin’s was the first organic peanut butter cup out there. They’re avid supporters of the creatures that make our world special. Normally, I avoid products with conventional palm oil. Justin’s uses an organic, orangutan-friendly version. The company also supports friendly pollinators like honeybees. These essential creatures are responsible for one out of every three bites we eat! Justin’s works with local, state, and national organizations to protect and conserve them.

Justin’s Super Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are satisfying, high-quality candies. You can share them with your kids, but I’d save them for yourself!
