Health benefits of dark chocolate and peanut butter
When it comes to choosing snack foods, it’s important to make the most out of each serving to cut down on empty calories and also stay fuller for longer between meals. The combination of healthful ingredients in Justin’s Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups have several beneficial properties that turn a regular snack into a super snack.
- Dark chocolate is full of essential nutrients. It has a surprising amount of fiber, an essential nutrient which should make up a good part of a daily diet as it promotes digestive health and regularity. Chocolate is also a good source of many other essential nutrients including iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, and selenium.
- Dark chocolate is a great source of antioxidants. An antioxidant’s main job is to fight the formation of free radicals in the body caused by environmental and physical stressors. Free radicals are destructive molecules that can lead to cell and tissue damage, which can cause signs of early aging and even increase the risk for a number of diseases. Dark chocolate, however, is a rich source of antioxidants including polyphenols, flavanols, and catechins that work to neutralize free radicals before they do their dirty work.
- Dark chocolate may be good for your heart. Your blood contains two types of cholesterol: HDL and LDL. The “bad” LDL type tends to clump together, clogging arterial walls and leading to heart attacks and strokes. The “good” HDL type scavenges the body, looking to remove LDL from the bloodstream. Which makes it all the better that there have been studies linking the consumption of dark chocolate to an increase in HDL and decrease in LDL cholesterol.
- Dark chocolate may help you manage your weight. As mentioned, dark chocolate is rich in fiber and protein, both of which produce a feeling of satisfaction upon eating them. When you satisfy your cravings with a little dark chocolate, it’s actually a great way to prevent yourself from binging on other, more unhealthy snacks.
- Peanut butter reduces unnecessary hunger. As a valuable source of protein, peanut butter is an excellent choice for keeping the stomach feeling fuller for longer. This can help to prevent further cravings and cut down on calories, which is important for managing and even losing weight. The protein in peanut butter also contributes to recovery after exercise because it’s essential in repairing muscles and building strength. Just one serving of Justin’s Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups has five grams of protein!
Justin’s is a manufacturer that believes in the quality of cooking in smaller batches, and it shows in the unrivaled taste of their products. Plus, the handy size of this package makes treats like the Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups a great choice for a busy, on-the-go lifestyle and anytime you have to travel. These tiny morsels of sweet goodness prove that there can be a balance of taste and nutrition even when it comes to the foods that traditionally carry more calories, and they are a great option for giving kids “candy” that is actually good for them.
More about Justin’s
The company was founded in 2004 right in Justin Gold’s kitchen, and soon expanded to farmer’s markets and national distribution a few short years later. At the start, twenty-something Justin had just moved to Boulder, Colorado, and wanted a powerful protein snack like peanut butter that could sustain him on long-distance bike rides. But, of course, it had to taste good. He started experimenting with more nut butters in his kitchen and soon branched out with a number of different flavors.
Today, there are seven varieties (in both jars and single serve squeeze packs)—they include classic almond butter, maple almond butter, honey almond butter, vanilla almond butter, chocolate hazelnut butter, classic peanut butter, and honey peanut butter. As well, Justin’s has expanded to now offer a line of tasty nut butter cups and snack packs with pretzels that provide a convenient snack on the go. The “Justin My Kitchen” cookbook was also recently released with more than 50 creative recipes that use the many nut butter products.

Based on 39 Reviews
These are my little treat everyday. (I stash them in the freezer- so good cold). Love that they are individually wrapped for portion control.
I usually don't like Reesie's but these are amazing!!!!! Must try if you like peanut butter!
These are my FAVORITE treat...unfortunately one can easily turn into eating the whole bag though...they're that good! :)
Delicious but Pricey
These are really fantastic.. However, the quantity is so small that it just feels to expensive. If they offered a larger bag at a better price I would buy them again. Compared to organic chocolate these are way more expensive than they need to be...But they are great!
way better than Reese's!
Loved that they were individually wrapped. Super delicious, without all of the guilt!
Not too sweet but just sweet enough and super rich.
Loved the richness of the dark chocolate
I cannot stop eating these, they are so good! Individually wrapped and the perfect size for just that little sweet tooth. The chocolate is so rich that it perfectly compliments the nutty peanut butter.
oh so good
It's hard to eat just one.. If you like the pair peanut butter and chocolate you will be in for a treat. Nothing compared to the cheap version you find at the checkout isle of grocery stores.
Better than a Reese's
I fell in love with these guys a couple months ago & haven't been able to stay away since! I do love the regular size better bc of the peanut butter ratio, but these are such a tastey treat.
These have become my favorite indulgence. They taste wonderful and best of all, they have all natural ingredients.
I didn't see crack listed in the ingredients, but I'm pretty sure they're lying. I am addicted! The first time I tried them, they were ok. But, by the time I had eaten a couple more, my taste buds adjusted (from Reeses) and I was hooked!!! YUMMM!!!
Perfect Chocolate Fix
Great little snack when all you need Is a bite of chocolate! Delicious!
These little morsels are really good! Just one, and I'm satisfied.
Love these. Smaller than their original ones and individually wrapped. (Think more min peanut butter cup size.) Tasty non-dairy treat!
Before I went g/f & d/f Reeses peanut butter cups were my vice. These are a tasty healthy replacement!
I almost wish I never tried these, I am an addict. Wish they would make a BIGGER bag.
I love the sea salt in these, I eat them as a special treat after a meal.
Nice flavor but I wish they came in different butters since I'm working on limiting my peanut intake.
Justin's the BEST
Justin's Dark Choc. Peanut Butter Cups
Love these. Just the right mix of dark chocolate and peanut butter. I actually hide them from my family.
Justin's Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
The clean and tastier version of Reese's ... so good, be careful not to eat the whole bag!
Puts Reese's to shame!
These are great, and make a perfect snack when packing lunches. I just wish they came in a larger bag!
Better Than Anything
Completely addictive, love dark vs milk in a peanut butter cup
There's no stopping at just one of these - sorry!! :-)
- Christine Mason
!!! MUST BUY !!!
ORGANIC mini peanut butter cups that taste AWESOME!
I love this mini cups, taste great and prefect size!
These things are so delicious and so much better for you than the junk brands! We always keep some of these stocked in our pantry. I love that they are individually wrapped and such a great price!
These are way too good! Perfect little bite sized treats and a great little snack to keep your sweet tooth happy.
BEST chocolate peanut butter cups EVER!
These are the perfect bite sized treats. The individual packaging makes them easy to pop in a lunchbox. They are a great treat. I don't feel guilty eating them knowing they are organic and made with quality ingredients. The peanut butter in them is a great texture and very flavorful. I can usually satisfy my sweet tooth with just one. This is my new must have lunchbox treat.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Superiority!
It had been several years since I "just had to have" a chocolate peanut butter cup, so I decided to try these. Oh, my! The packaging suggests that since these are miniatures, they would be convenient to share with friends. After your first bite, you may feel significantly more selfish than you did a minute ago! The flavor is superb, they are incredibly rich and utterly addictive. I suggest at least two packages, if you hope to be generous (or at least polite) to your friends.
MY FAVORITE! always on my order!
Every time I place an order, these are on it! So rich, smooth and delicious! With great ingredients!
Milk chocolate combo is better.
I love peanut butter cups. I have been a Reese's addict since I was a kid. However, I started consuming Justin's version a few months ago and although they don't taste quite the same, they are a much healthier alternative.
Out of curiosity, I purchased the dark chocolate flavor after running across them on Thrive. I'm glad they were tiny because eating a larger piece of these would've left a bad after taste in my mouth...too bitter for the butter. I feel like the milk chocolate and peanut butter combination are much creamier and sweeter.
- Manuel N.
These might be the most heavenly peanut butter cup snacks I have ever had. They are Certified Organic and Gluten-Free! I almost feel like they are to good to eat! They are also very rich and buttery.
What I am a little turned off by is the dark chocolate. I think that these would have a more smooth flavor if they were made with milk chocolate rather than dark. This is a little thing though, considering I will continue to buy them!

Perfect little peanut butter cups
These absolutely blow Reese's out of the water with their superior ingredients, and it translates to the taste as well. I 100% prefer these over any non-organic alternatives, and the proof is in the pudding. The first 2 ingredients are organic dark chocolate and organic peanuts. These cups have genuine and authentic and distinguishable dark chocolate and peanut butter flavors. They've got substance to them. The dark chocolate is rich, smooth, and has a strong cacao taste. And the peanut butter filling is the perfect complement; it's smooth with a little bit of peanut grittiness that provides a great mouth feel when combined with the exceptional creaminess of the chocolate. And it has a very prominent, fresh, pure peanut butter taste. These are my go-to treat. Still a candy, but it's more like candy+ or candy 2.0. You'll still have problems if you consume copious amounts, but just a few could actually be a healthy treat. With the benefits of dark chocolate and the protein in the organic peanut butter filling, they're also a great pick-me-up that can double as my candy treat for the day.

Easy Protein Snack
I personally love peanut butter cups so I am a big fan of Justin's! I try not to have them all the time but they are great when I am craving chocolate because I don't have to feel bad about eating them. They also make for a good protein kick throughout the day. For a good organic treat, here's your answer!
- Timothy Griffin
Addicted!!!! A perfect balance!
Love these. Each of my orders will contain a bag of these! Goodbye Reeses. The healthier version is on the way! Must try! Chocolate is thick and rich with a great peanut butter taste inside!
These are delicious! I liked the larger ones but always felt the ratio of chocolate to peanut butter was a bit off. They have solved the issue with these wonderful little treats! A perfect balance of flavors and both are creamy and satisfying.
