2010/029: Giant Peanutbutter Cup

Couldn’t go all the way to Indiana without making a trip (or two) to Albanese Candy Factory!! One of the many delicious things we bought, were these giant peanut butter cups. They’re so big, they could almost be a whole meal (well, calorie-wise anyway 😉 )
When we were at the store, we sampled a few things, and Melissa was all sad because she really liked the gummy bears last summer, and she can’t have them since she got her braces. One of the sales people overheard us and said that their gummies are the only ones known not to stick to braces! I let Melissa have a sample, and sure enough, they didn’t stick! Of course we bought them a bag full and the kids were happy little campers. Sadly, though, they didn’t have the Figaros (small chocolate squares with a hazelnutty taste), that we bought last summer.

    wow, that thing is huge!! I prefer a thin
    cup, not so much peanut butter. I’m glad Mel got to in on the fun!

  2. These are good, but not quite as good as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

  4. I saw big Reese’s ones like these at the Hershey Factory store last summer. I don’t eat much dark chocolate but they also had white chocolate versions which I “sampled”. 🙂 Yeah, sample is a good word.

  6. Scott, I prefer milk chocolate myself (and these pb cups were milk chocolate). I have yet to try the white chocolate ones.

  7. White chocolate is…not chocolate. OK, I know this could get very controversial but it is…some sort of homogenized milk cocoa thing. I agree it tastes good but in the world of highly refined chocolate addiction (a world I PROUDLY live within) it is only the brown chocolates that matter.
    Oh, this photo makes me hungry.

  8. You’re absolutely right, white “chocolate” is only the cocoa butter and milk solids… and very rarely is white chocolate ever really good! (Unless it’s Godiva, or Lindt chocolate with coconut, or white KitKats.)
