I recently had the chance to sample Sun Cups, a gluten-free, nut-free candy much like those famous commercial chocolate peanut butter cups. This is a dream come true for those who have to avoid both nuts and gluten (or even those who just have to avoid nuts).
More about Sun Cups:
In 2008, a man knocked on the door at Seth Ellis Chocolates with a jar of sunflower butter and a challenge: create a candy cup his peanut-allergic son could eat. The chocolatiers got to work, inspired by the idea of a peanut butter cup for everyone. A jar of sunflower butter, a handful of test batches and a day later, they had cracked the code. Sun Cups were born.
Being a peanut butter cup for everyone is no small task. It calls for unseen levels of nut-free, gluten-free, Certified Kosher deliciousness. And being the overachievers they are, the chocolatiers also made their creation all natural, using cacao from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms. That means the chocolate in Sun Cups comes from farms that look out for their workers and the planet. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Sun Cups are offered in four different varieties:
I had a blast sampling these cute little cups of deliciousness! I really enjoyed all four varieties, but I think the Dark Chocolate is my favorite. The Mint and Caramel Cups were a nice change of pace for this type of candy…I would definitely have them again! Sun Cups can be found in select stores across the US or ordered online.
