Nothing says Halloween quite like a peanut butter cup! These organic peanut butter cups are unlike any you’ve tasted before. They’re crafted with organic ingredients and contain no hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup or artificial ingredients.
I received a package of these peanut butter cups in my October Knoshbox.
I brewed a cup of steaming hot chai to go with my peanut butter cups, and one of my favorite chai blends is this Witches’ Brew Chai from 52Teas! It’s spicy, a little bit smoky, and a whole lot of WOW! It made for a compelling accompaniment for these rich, delicious confections from Justin’s.
What I Think:
Before I begin on this review, I think I should make mention of the fact that when I visited the Knoshbox website to get the information on this product, it would seem that Knoshbox has changed their name to Knoshy! As long as they keep up with the amazing boxes … I don’t really care what they choose to call themselves! Just please don’t do something like sell out to a company and then disappear on us. I need you, Knoshbox or Knoshy! You can change your name but don’t go changing what you’re about, please!
Anyway, back to these treats! I’ve tried a few different “gourmet” peanut butter cups, and while those that I’ve tried have been superior to the best known peanut butter cup (you know which one I’m talking about, right?) I have yet to find one that compares to Justin’s. I guess the same is true for their peanut butter too.
These peanut butter cups look just like the “better known” peanut butter cup that you can find in any convenience store candy aisle (you know the one I’m talking about, right?) In fact, if you put just the peanut butter cups up next to each other, side by side, you’d probably have a hard time determining which was which based on appearance alone. They’re both about the same size, they’re both about the same shape with the same ridges around the edges, and they’re both lined with the wax paper cups. They’re both made of chocolate and they both have peanut butter inside them.
But that’s where the similarities end. They might look the same, but the certainly don’t taste the same. Sure … the milk chocolate is sweet and creamy, and the peanut butter is smooth and and deliciously peanut-y. But with these Justin’s peanut butter cups, everything just tastes of better quality, you know? The chocolate is better, the peanut butter is better … and this just creates a better tasting product.
My Final Thoughts:
Everything that I’ve tried from Justin’s has just simply been YUM. Their nut butters, their peanut butter cups … just … yummy. Sure, the products cost a bit more than the commercially processed competition, but give Justin’s a try and you’ll find that when it comes to taste there simply is NO competition. Justin’s is just better. Period.
