Atkins Endulge Peanut Butter CupsI’ve been eager to try Atkins Endulge Peanut Butter Cups as I love, love the product that it imitates. Like you need a hint 🙂 I held off on buying it for a while because I wanted to shed the weight first. I didn’t trust myself to avoid eating more than one serving knowing my Reesesy history.

I’ve lost the weight, so I bought a box. Since Endulge products come in 1.2oz packages, I expected one normal-sized cup or two small ones like the miniatures. Surprise, surprise. Atkins Peanut Butter Cups comes with two medium cups — similar to the single servings available in some of the packages.

Just looking at the package — you know the peanut butter with be smoother than the brand we all know. That didn’t bother me. First bite. Yum! Not identical, but the chocolate sure comes close. The peanut butter oozes nutty creamy goodness and tastes something between plain peanut butter and Reese’s special mixture. I would’ve been happy either way as I rarely meet peanut butter I don’t like. (Heck, I’m addicted to PB2 and Chocolate PB2 — more on these another day.)

The strong and sweet chocolate does a great job satisfying the taste buds that I had no desire to eat more cups. It would be nice of the chocolate outsides had a thinner layer if it’d mean less fat. Then again, if they were thinner — maybe the taste buds would crave another serving since it’d highlight the peanut butter more.

Atkins Endulge Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups have 13g fat with 7g of it saturated, 2g protein and 2g net carbs. You know what? I like several other bars just as much, if not more that have fewer calories and more protein. It won’t be a problem to have the occasional peanut butter cup treat.

Many of us love our peanut butter cups that Atkins did the right thing creating an Endulge treat. After all, if you crave the cups and eat other items instead — you’ll keep eating until you taste those cups. It’s just how we are. Better to have a little something we crave than fight it.
