This is the second of the two Unreal candies I bought to review for the blog. I really loved the Candy Coated Chocolates that I reviewed last time, so imagine my anticipation when I prepared for their Peanut Butter Cups. I was very much looking forward to it!
The wrapper for these Peanut Butter Cups follows the same logic as the Candy Coated Chocolates did. A black background with the “Unreal” logo on the front in a bright color. There’s pretty photos of the Peanut Butter Cups included, which makes the candy even more enticing. It’s a really nice, simple design.
I feel it is always hard to review peanut butter cups, since everyone wants to know what they’re like compared to a Reese’s. Since, you know, Reese’s is the king of peanut butter cups right now.
I excitedly open the wrapper to finally give them as taste. They are packaged similar to most other peanut butter cups. They sit in a protective hard paper tray to keep them from sliding around too much. The cups smell of peanut butter, sweet and roasted. You can also get notes of chocolate mixed in with the strong, nutty aroma. It’s extremely enticing.
The flavor is excellent. The peanut butter is smooth and creamy, and has an excellent roasted, nutty, salty flavor. The chocolate is smooth with a nice milky sweetness to it. The combination of the chocolate and the peanut butter is a beautiful combination, and these peanut butter cups are no exception. So, question of the article: how do they compare to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? Well, it’s a complicated answer. The chocolate in Unreal’s peanut butter cup is much taster I think. The peanut butter in Unreal’s cup is not as salty or crispy like a Reese’s. So really, it depends on your tastes.
I am a big fan of that Unreal is doing with their candy. They have a bunch of other candies to try besides their peanut butter cups and their candy coated chocolate. I am going to make sure I get to the others soon! In the meantime, I really recommend that you check them out, as so bar both candies I’ve had have been stellar. If you’re a peanut butter fan at all, you should be giving these a try.
