Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Peanut Butter Theme Week.
Today's Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups were manufactured by Niagara Chocolates (Cheektowaga, New York). The company was founded in Buffalo, New York in 1956 and offers a variety of chocolate bars, cups and confections.
Aroma notes for these peanut butter cups included: chocolate green, nut (peanut), and warm floral spice (vanilla).
Texture: Creamy, buttery milk chocolate with a smooth peanut butter filling.
The milk chocolate cup/shell had a confection level sweetness, while the smooth, uniform peanut butter filling was not overly sweet--the opposite of a dark (less sweet) chocolate shell with a sugary peanut butter interior. The nutty, peanut butter core helped balance the sweeter chocolate exterior to create a tasty overall treat.
Ingredients: Milk chocolate (sugar, cocoa butter*, skim milk powder, chocolate*, butterfat (milk), soy lecithin, natural flavor), peanut butter (dry roasted peanuts, sucrose, palm oil and sea salt), sugar, palm kernel oil, cocoa powder*, whey powder (milk), nonfat milk powder, soy lecithin, vanilla.
Allergen-related information: Contains milk, soy, peanut. May contain: egg, wheat, tree nuts.
