Dark Chocolate! Current Favorite: Justin’s

Starbucks’ breakfast containers sometimes include Justin’s brand peanut butter or almond butter packets and they are delicious. Naturally, dark chocolate peanut butter cups by the same brand immediately sparked my interest.

These peanut butter cups are delectable. The deliciousness of Justin’s creamy and wholesome organic peanut butter inside of a tasteful organic and fair trade dark chocolate cup is satisfying for sugar and salt lovers. Sea salt is balanced by bitter notes of dark chocolate and it just works. These unique peanut butter cups are great for a salty-sweet treat. Also of note is the thickness of the chocolate layers (and their strength) that gives way to a clean break/bite rather than crumbling. Note the clean-cut edges of the halves in the pictures. Basically, Justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups have good structural integrity. Good chocolate “snap,” beautiful presentation and salty-sweet goodness.

The cups are sold in United States specialty stores and are USDA Organic and use Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa. Justin’s is based in Boulder, Colorado.
