NEWSFLASH! Costco has released Kirkland Signature Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter cups! I knew when I saw these we would be bringing them home. Chocolate peanut butter is probably Sean’s favorite. I like it but not as much as he does. We have a lot of chocolate peanut butter going on in our house. Ice cream, cookies, chocolates, protein bars, protein powder.
These Costco Kirkland Signature chocolate peanut butter cups look very visually appealing in their red foil and red plastic container. Very festive!
Conveniently sealed in a big plastic reusable container keeps these tasting fresh and also prevents them from getting beat up or squished. I also like how they’re individually wrapped because you can scatter a few on your holiday cookie plate to make it look a little more festive or you can also add some to gift baskets or cookie baskets you’re giving as gifts. As a nurse I love individually wrapped chocolates, I’m not a fan of unwashed hands dipping into a container of unwrapped chocolates, reminds me of the time we all got Norovirus for Christmas 2016. It was probably the easiest way I’ve ever shed the few pounds I put on from Christmas Eve to Boxing Day but it was not pleasant.
So you’re probably thinking..Natalie, how are these any different than the leading brand of peanut butter cups? Well, in my opinion these are definitely creamier, less artificial tasting and possibly a tad less sweet with higher quality tasting chocolate. They’re bigger with a higher peanut butter to chocolate ratio. In my opinion the leading brand of peanut butter cups peanut butter is kind of pasty and dry. These are a moist, smooth, thinner peanut butter filling. Basically like you scooped a teaspoon of peanut butter into a chocolate shell.
Nutritionally, let’s just not even go there. These are a treat, a very scrumptious treat and they’re best consumed in moderation.
They’re not exactly cheap but not overly expensive either, $11.99 Canadian per container. I would consider these priced reasonably, they’re more expensive than the brand bought at the local convenience store but I feel they’re also quite different than your average peanut butter cup. The price is also cheaper than a lot specialty chocolate shops although they’re of similar quality to peanut butter cups that would come from a chocolate
These are for you chocolate peanut butter lovers, go pick some up and dive right into the calories and peanut buttery goodness. T'is the season!
Would you rather have milk or dark chocolate peanut butter cups?
