Boyer Butterscotch Smoothie Peanut Butter Cups

Smoothie Peanut Butter Cups

As a peanut butter lover, I'm always on the lookout for different types of peanut butter cups. Although the Boyer brand is new to me, the wrapper had the look of an old-timey candy, right down to the play money "rebate" offer. I'm not it's worth it to buy 50 packs of cups just for a $1 rebate, not to mention the postage to mail 50 cardboard pieces of play money is probably close to $1 itself, but I got a chuckle from it.

I said the Boyer brand was new to me, but that's just because I had no idea Boyer made the more famous Mallo Cup until going to their website for this review. Boyer has been around since the Great Depression. Though the brand has been sold a few times since then, the nostalgic look of the packaging hasn't changed much.

The cups had a lumpy look to them, offering a preview of the small nut pieces I would find inside. The coating was sweet and creamy, the nutty center was dense, and I liked the slight crunch from the small peanut chunks.

I didn't notice that these were butterscotch peanut butter cups until I tasted them. The butterscotch was a bit too sweet, but the warm, buttery flavor went well with the peanut butter. The cups were salty on the finish, and while they were different from the usual peanut butter cup, I found them too sweet to want to eat often.

You're making me hungry! :)

I love peanut butter cups...I always hunt them down at import stores.

By the way I recently tried a chocolate bar called Dagoba that I bought from the US (iherb), it was Dagoba - Chai flavour and it was SO yum! I was thinking of you at the time...wondering if you have ever tried it?

Great to see you back blogging again, I missed your posts.

These might be tricky to find, but I bet you could get them online! Thanks for thinking of me and for coming back to read! I've tried Dagoba chocolate, but not that flavor - it sounds delicious, so I will see if I can find it. :)
