Quinoa Goes Unreal with Chocolate and Peanut Butter

While not an official fun food holiday, a few years back, a petition was circulating online and through Change.org to declare May 14th National Quinoa Day. Back around Halloween we tested out a Milk Chocolate Crispy Quinoa Peanut Butter Cup from Unreal Candy but I saved the focused review today in honor of the quinoa lovers attempt to get a fun food holiday started. Maybe this will post will help them out. As you can see the bag these come in is a bright green one, one of my favorite colors, but that doesn't mean I'll automatically love the treats,  you'll have to keep reading to find out. I did receive this bag of treats to test out, share, and write about from Unreal via the Tryazon program, no other form of compensation was received for this honest review.

These cups come individually wrapped in silver with the "UNREAL" label in matching green so you cannot confuse them if you happen to mix several varieties together but kept them wrapped. The cup is 1.5 inches across and 0.25 inches thick and looks a lot like the Halloween version of Unreal's Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter cups did. There is no external sign of any crispy anything inside so we'll need to take a bite to find out. The cup has a light chocolate and sweet fragrance to it. The chocolate itself makes no noise when I take a bite but the inside makes a very loud crunch when I chew. However even though the inside makes noise it is thick and creamy, tasting almost entirely like a sweet yet roasted peanut butter. The flavors blend very well in this cup and I like it though not as much as I have Unreal's dark chocolate treats in the past. Each cup is 80 calories made of some organic ingredients with over 30% of these certified fair trade products. This is milk chocolate so it has dairy but also sunflower, quinoa, and coconut derived ingredients in case any of those are an allergy problem for you.

Leave me a comment and let me know if you have tried these out and what you thought of them, please. If you haven't tried them, is this a variety of peanut butter cup you've be willing to give a chance?
