Bacon Peanut Butter Cups Review

Tuesday, August 16, 2011 Review by Andrew

Ed: We recently sent the Madison Chocolatier West Bacon Peanut Butter Cups to our expert reviewers in the Portland Oregon region. Here is their unbiased review:

Sarah and I sampled a Madison Chocolatiers West Peanut Butter Cup last night (I invited her to share in the experience because (1) her sense of taste is more heightened than mine, and (2) she was looking awfully forlorn when I pulled out the first cup and began the tasting pre-ritual), and we were left with very similar reflections.

First of all, the immediate rush of chocolate is powerful, rich and dominating. Their recipe and craftsmanship for making chocolate takes a second place to no one. The outer layer is thick, luscious, and addictive–a perfect shell of protection guarding the mysteries of the bacon infused peanut butter lying within. We both loved the strong intensity provided by the crunchy bacon bits blended within the peanut butter spread, but Sarah felt that her experience would have been over the top had the peanut butter itself been a bit sweeter. It tasted and felt fine to me, but I’ve learned to pay attention to her eye for detail in these sorts of matter. Upon reflection I agree that the filling would have rounded out the total taste experience with a sweeter peanut butter spread.

All in all, though, there is no comparison between this delightful chocolate and bacon infused peanut butter cup and the hack globs of bovine manure turned out hourly by the Reese family of confections. Truly a denigration of the bounty of Mother Earth, Georgia peanut farmers and cocoa bean plantations of South America, and cows everywhere. By any other name, swill in a fluted waxed paper cup!

 

Ed: Suffice to say, BaconScotch APPROVED product.  We love all the goodies that Madison Chocolatiers West has generously provided. They create beautiful handmade confections that are consistently delicious. Hit the product link below for more information.
