foods with high fat content (like peanut butter) DO actually have a potential to get rancid. That being said, there is generally a LARGE window of time they are fine still. I rarely look at BB or eat by dates, unless I am eating something I know is out of date and then it’s morbid curiosity!
@chienfou@courteousblock@sdencar I go with the sniff test. Yes. I’m aware that’s not always definitive. And yes aware of fats going rancid. But I store those things pretty well. Until the seal is broken fat can’t go rancid as there is no oxygen to react with.
I had some milk dated 12/14 I just hadn’t opened and it’s completely fine.
Mmmm: INULIN… TWICE. Pure fart fuel, if you’re lucky. For the initiated, inulin is a type of sugar that’s more or less undigestable so it shows up in “diet” foods. However just because the human stomach can’t adequately break it down doesn’t mean OTHER things can’t break it down, so it tends to ferment by the time it makes it into the lower intestines leading to noxious fumes (at least) and occasionally a fart-carbonated fecal liquid tsunami, like cracking a shaken can of devil’s beer. Add in that it’s already delivered in a chocolatey load from the top end… Straight shartnado. This oughtta be classified as a munition.
Edit: In for two. Valentine’s is gonna be a blast!
I’ve had these and their coconut bars. In order to cut back on straight sugar and overall sweetness. The inulin in them is very little. For me, no farts, no Tsunassmi of brown etc. If you are actually looking for a snack that reasonably approximates the brand name PBcups, this is fairly good. If you like full up sugar, you are going to meh, bleh, yuck these as they are way less sweet.
The quinoa gives a crunch without overpowering the PBcup. For those trying to get off/reduce sugar, decent sub.
The price compared to current on the shelf is great, in for a few orders!
Do Not Want. I like peanut butter, and I like dark chocolate, but I detest the combination of the two. It’s not as vile and awful as the combination of milk chocolate and peanut butter, but I will still leave all of this for others to eat. And that’s without even taking the presence of agave syrup into account.
I’ve picked up the mounds version of these at Costco and they are really tasty. They really help when a sugar craving hits though I have found different bags have different textured coconut so I’m imagining these will be a bit more consistent bag to bag.
I have yet to find a commercial peanut butter cup that I like better than just a square of semi-sweet dark chocolate, a smear of peanut butter and a small sprinkle of salt. The packaged ones are all too sweet for my tastes.
Arrived today in fine condition. Actually pleased to see that there were six 8-packs of the described peanut butter ones, and six 6-packs of non-quinoa almond butter cups. So 12 fewer cups but hey, variety!
Just got them today. 4 boxes of peanut butter. I think I had these years ago, but never got them since because they were too expensive. Couldn’t pass these up. They far exceeded my expectations, especially considering the expiration date, which I’m not really worried about. They are definitely dark and creamy with a slight not-too-much crunch.
I’m aware of the inulin thing, so I’m purposefully avoiding eating too many at once until I’m sure. But I’m fairly sure I’ve had it before and haven’t had an issue.
If all continues to go well, my only regret will be not getting more.
I got two of the peanut butter cases. The chocolate is dark and tasty, but the quinoa adds an odd, slightly chemical flavor. I assume it is just a remnant of the crisping process. The real disappointment is the peanut butter. There isn’t much of it and what is there barely has any flavor. I wish they had skipped the quinoa and added more flavorful peanut butter. We’ll eat them, but it certainly wasn’t what I was expecting.
Just received mine yesterday. They definitely fill the need for a chocolate/PB fix and they are smaller, which is actually a good thing for me.
I’m also pleasantly surprised at the taste factor - they aren’t Reese’s cups but they also don’t have the overbearing greasiness that those have. Also I don’t find them as addictive as the Trader Joe’s dark PB cups - I am fine eating one or two of these, rather than the downward spiral of choco-coma that ensues when I crack open the TJ brand.
I worked with support on this and they really do a great job taking care of their customers. This is the 2nd time I’ve had to use support since Meh debuted and both experiences were amazing! This is a great company to do business with.
