Accidentally Vegan: Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups!
Oh yes… all the rich yummy peanut butter, all the deep chocolately goodness… and Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are vegan and organic too!
Whether we are discussing vegan candy or not, these vegan peanut butter cups are amazing! I’ve seen them at Whole Foods. But If you don’t have a Whole Foods near you, you can get them online at Amazon.
These organic dark chocolate peanut butter cups have the perfect amount of sweetness (they’re not too sweet!), and they are made with fair-trade certified vegan chocolate. They are SO amazingly yummy, I was thrilled to find them. I’m also amazed at Justin’s commitment to sustainability through their packaging and manufacturing. They use fair-trade cacao and their headquarters is even solar powered!
Note: only the dark chocolate peanut butter cups are vegan. The milk chocolate ones contain dairy. I’ve also seen the white chocolate peanut butter cups, and I believe those also contain dairy. Always check the label to be sure, since ingredients can change at any time. Justin’s also came out with dark chocolate cashew butter and almond butter – yum!
I met Justin several years ago and he’s a super nice guy! He’s from my area and I ran into him at the airport when we were both flying to Pittsburgh. Here’s my interview with Justin from Justin’s Nut Butter.
