When you think of “peanut butter cups”, what word comes to mind? If that word is “Reese’s”, that’s only because you’ve never tried Choceur Peanut Butter Cups, available at Aldi.
These are everything the national brand isn’t, and I mean that in a GOOD way. You know how the peanut butter in the national brand tends to be a little…manufactured? How sometimes the chocolate can be a little…flakey? How it all becomes one jumbled mess in your mouth? I mean, let’s be honest here…national brand peanut butter cups taste good, but it’s clearly evident we’re not working with world-class ingredients here. Well Choceur’s product surprisingly doesn’t run into those problems. For starters, the milk chocolate is ridiculously smooth, and melts in your mouth the way you wish the national brand cups did. Like most products carrying the “Choceur” branding, it’s got a delicious milk chocolate taste that perfectly combines with the peanut butter.
And oh, the peanut butter. You know how it’s just a peanut butter mass in most mass-market peanut butter cups? How it kind of tastes like peanut butter, but doesn’t really look like peanut butter? Well this is clearly peanut butter. Just like the milk chocolate, it’s smooth, and it’s rich, and it tantalizingly swirls out of the cup with every bite, as if daring you to stop eating them.
If you like the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, this is something that you must try. The only downside, which isn’t really much of a downside, is that Choceur’s peanut butter cups are about a third of the size of the “king size” national brand cups. But that can also be a good thing, as those with incredibly strong willpower can eat a couple to cover a chocolate craving, without taking in a lot of calories. In other words, these aren’t just worth the $2.49 asking price, these would even be worth an asking price of $5…and that would even be better, because then I’d be less tempted to buy them every time I walk past them.
Overall: 10/10. Forget the national brand–Choceur’s Peanut Butter Cups are infinitely superior in every single aspect. The milk chocolate is creamy, smooth, and melts in your mouth. The peanut butter isn’t a mass of something resembling peanut butter, like it is in the popular version of these cups–this is straight up rich, fall-out-of-the-cup peanut butter that tastes like it’s fresh out of a jar. And at $2.49 for a 12 oz. container, they are worth every single penny, and then some. If you have even a passing interest in the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, you simply have to check these out.
