I never realized the impact a nut allergy could have on someone until I actually met someone who had one. There are so many things she cannot have or even be close to. One of the things I think I’d miss most if I had a nut or gluten allergy would be peanut butter cups. I’m not even a huge fan of peanut butter but who can resist a peanut butter cup? They are one of the best things and I’d be sad if I was no longer able to indulge.
Sun Cups recently sent me some of their nut free & gluten free candy cups for review. The inside of each cup is made from sunflower butter, something I’d never heard of until now. There are several varieties of Sun Cups and they most likely have something that appeals to everyone. The flavors include:
- Dark Chocolate Sun Cups
- Milk Chocolate Sun Cups
- Dark Chocolate Mint Cups
- Milk Chocolate Caramel Cups
Outside of the package Sun Cups look like other candy cups I’ve had in the past but the inside is where I really noticed the difference. Like I said, these are made with sunflower butter instead of peanut butter or other fillings. The sunflower butter gives the inside a very creamy and delicious consistency. Its melt in your mouth good! The Dark Chocolate Mint Sun Cups are definitely my favorite. It’s great that there are now tasty candy alternatives for those that cannot have nuts or gluten. Sun Cups are good for anyone though, they taste great, come in convenient packages with 2 cups each, and will surely satisfy your sweet tooth!
