Hmmmm, this is something I've always wondered about. When they say "no sugar added" to a treat that is normally made of sugar, what does that mean? Does that mean that there's no sugar at all, or that there's sugar, but no extra sugar added beyond the regular process of making these? In other words, are these cups full of sugar, do they have any sugar, or is there actually no sugar in these at all? From what I know (looking at the package), these have been given a sugar substitute, one which I cannot pronounce, nor do I even want to try. To be honest, the addition of a sugar substitute doesn't really bother me. I don't think too much about what's added to treats that I review, or how good they are for me health wise. I'm ok with rotting my teeth and body out in the name of candy; it's what I do.
Since I’m not concerned about the health of these Reese Mini Cups, the question for me is how do they stand up in taste?
The answer is pretty simple, not bad actually. The peanut butter seems a little chewier than in regular Reese Peanut Butter Cups, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The chocolate is still smooth, as always with Reese chocolate. I'd have to say that the peanut butter is a little more bitter than usual, and I don't mean more peanuty either. It just has a slightly different taste than I’m used to with just about any kind of peanut butter. I can't really explain it. The peanut butter is a little drier too, but that could be what's giving it that chewy texture, so it might be a worthwhile trade.
All in all, these Reese Mini Cups No Sugar Added are not bad. If you can't take sugar of regular Reese Peanut Butter Cups, or don't want to, these treats might be OK.
