Theo Peanut Butter Cups come in Four Vegan, Soy-Free Flavors

0

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, this chocolatier was compassionate enough to make a dairy-free, soy-free, dark chocolate version. In fact, since we first posted about Theo Peanut Butter Cups, they’ve expanded their vegan line to include four varieties! Three with peanut butter, and one with almond butter. For that, we are oh-so very grateful.

Theo Peanut Butter Cups come in a Few Vegan, Soy-Free Flavors

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.

I’ve updated this post to include details for all four vegan varieties here. Be sure to leave your own rating and review below if you try any of them!

I would think about buying these again when on sale, but might still hesitate. The chocolate is just a little too thick and the middle was quite dry. If they upped the filling and worked on the moisture, I would be sold. I bought the dark peanut butter variety.
