The idea of these cups is really sound in my mind. In fact, I've been to a few fancy chocolate shops where they have peanut butter cups in many different styles with many different chocolates. I've tried dark cups before and for the most part it's an interesting change over the more common milk chocolate peanut butter cup. These however really didn't cut the mustard for me at all.
I think the quality of the chocolate had to be the first problem with these Dark Peanut Butter Cups. With a flavour as strong as peanut butter you really need to have a strong dark chocolate to balance things out. If it's just a slightly stronger milk chocolate pretending to be dark chocolate, it's not going to work at all. It ends up just tasting like its milk chocolate brothers.
So, I guess my problem is not that I don't like these, I mean they taste pretty much like regular Reese Peanut Butter Cups. My problem is the fact that they don't taste different, or anything like dark chocolate at all. So, this is a hard one for me. I guess I'd suggest them to anybody who likes Reese Peanut Butter Cups, but if you’re into dark chocolate, you’ll be very disappointed in these.
