Made to love in cute heart shapes, these chocolate cups are a cut above the rest with purely organic, fair trade ingredients. Overall, they're delicious - I mean, chocolate and peanut butter, what's not too love? But for perfection, a little more rich, creamy, peanut goodness would be on our wish list.

Whoever thought to make Theo peanut butter cups heart-shaped was pure genius. They are almost too adorable to eat … almost.

And though they do have a milk chocolate variety, the chocolatiers were compassionate enough to make a non-dairy, soy-free, dark chocolate version of Theo peanut butter cups (vegan almond butter cups reportedly arriving soon!). For that, we are also very grateful.

Tasting Notes for Theo Peanut Butter Cups

I picked up a package of these Theo peanut butter cups on sale for an impossible to resist price. Whether I’d struck gold or just found a satisfying sugar fix, the value was still there.

Upon first bite, I was surprised by the thickness of the chocolate layers. They were much more substantial than other brands, with a nice smooth, semi-sweet taste, much like everyday chocolate chips. But while I love dense, sweet cacao, that hefty amount nearly drown the peanut-y middle, which was a coarse, slightly dry filling, rather than smooth and creamy as I had been expecting. That said, it was quite good overall with the right sweet and salty balance. I just longed for a little more peanut butter oomph.
