Another ratter here, in a busy day rush, so this will be short. I was very lucky to get to taste these.
I must say that these are some great candies. Once or twice a year I get a craving for some reese's peanut butter cups or reese's pieces. I eat fresh ground peanut butter much more often. I could easily develop a frequent craving for these Salted Peanut Butter Cups.
Other than form, they did not remind me of reese's cups at all. However, my girlfriend and I both did think the filling had a slight similarity in flavor to reese's pieces.
These candies conjured a flood of memories from my early child hood. I've been taken back to the 1980's when my 90 year old aunt was still making candy from scratch in her southern kitchen using the simplest of raw ingredients. Of the many kinds she made, one of those was a peanut butter fudge of course. I'm sure i've had many fudges since then, but my great aunt's and these from Candy Basket surpass them all.
I'm buying some for my grandmother for christmas.
