Product Review: Rite-Aid Peanut Butter Cups

I know, I know--what did I expect? Well what I expected is a nice, smooth store brand peanut butter cup like Walmart used to make. (I can't believe I just plugged Walmart. *hangs head in shame*) Sometimes I want a peanut butter cup with smooth filling instead of crunchy.

For $5 ($7 when not on sale) I thought it would at least be tasty. And it is, if you enjoy eating chocolate candles.

The "chocolate" is actually a light brown waxy substance that would be unidentifiable if eaten blindfolded. The filling did have a faint peanut butter flavor and a nice texture, but certainly not worth the calories.

At least the brand had the smarts to call the product what it is, without making up a sad new name for the item to compete with its hipper, more popular cousin (the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup). I can't say the same for the "chocolate lentils" in the same aisle, which were actually a generic form of M&Ms.

Verdict: Buy a candle instead. You'll enjoy it more.

  1. I had bought them on sale and you are right, they are a waxy texture and certainly not worth the fat content.
