Newman’s Own Peanut Butter Cups

Newmans_own_pb_cups

I picked these up at the same time that I picked up the Peppermint Cups, and while I’m not the peanut butter fan in the household — I did like these.

The chocolate appears to be the same as for the Peppermint Cups — dark, but sweet and very smooth.  The peanut butter filling was much smoother and softer here though.  I’m not a big fan of the grainy greasy peanut butter filling in Resses PB Cups and I was very happy to see that these were completely different.  They didn’t feel greasy at all — the filling was more light and smooth than anything and tasted like actual peanuts.  The one thing I would say is that it could have used a hit of salt to offset the sweetness (there is salt in these, but I wanted a touch more).

While I’m still not a huge peanut butter fan — I would recommend these and would eat them again.

    Are they roughly the same size as the Resses? If so then I’m more stokes than I already was about the 3 pack! I’ll have my eye out for these.
