Add Some Darkness to Your Reese's Peanut Butter Cup

Tomorrow is National Peanut Butter Day and so to mark that I want to share a review of a product from Reese's -- their Reese's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup. The company sent me a coupon for a free product of theirs in the single serving variety without expectation for a review but hey, freebie equals possible review so here you all go! Of all of the various types of Reese's products in the check line of my local grocery store, I picked the dark one because, as you may know, I love darker chocolate.

The dark chocolate here doesn't make these two cups healthy, I wouldn't even say healthier, just different. The chocolate ingredients include cocoa butter and semisweet chocolate (the image on the right comes from Hershey's own site so you can see the information yourself). These look darker than the regular peanut butter cups but primarily have a very peanut butter scent with just a hint of the chocolate. The chocolate coating covers the roasted peanut butter inside and the chocolate melts in my fingertips as soon as I pick it up. The semi-sweet chocolate is very strong and it is the principle lingering flavor but the peanut butter blends very well with it. This is more roasted peanut butter not as sweet as I recall the cups being in the past. Perhaps they've cut back on the sugar?

I really love this variation of the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. If you like semi-sweet chocolate and roasted peanut butter, give this a try. If you have tried them, what did you think of them?

I know, I know. Why not a Valentine's specific review? I did some of those earlier to give you a better chance of checking them out. Also companies want to see COMMENTS from readers to know you are engaged. The more you comment, the more great (or not so great) chocolate I'll be able to tell you about.

Well, if it is national PB cup day, I better have one. Or two, maybe.

Well, National Peanut Butter Day so you don't need these, you could have peanut butter in all sort of ways though I do recommend with chocolate.

I LOVE Reese's Peanut Butter cups and given the choice, I always choose the dark ones. Wish I had seen this before Rich left for the store; I would have added this to his list.

Hi, Reddocent! I've seen them from time to time in the shops but not very often.

Yup! You are correct and I have never been able to associate them with any special Holiday. Sometimes the white ones are around at Easter but I'm not sure that there is any rhyme or reason to when Reese's has the white or dark available.
