Have you tried one yet? I had my first ‘craving’ yesterday and let me tell you, they were absolutely amazing!! As you already know, I am a huge fan of Quest and this one only made my love for them grow bigger! Quest was kind enough to send me one to try out but now I want more! Guess, I know which box I’ll be ordering once I run out!
Although they don’t taste exactly like a Reese’s pieces peanut butter cup they are definitely delicious and sort of like a million times better for you! These dark chocolate peanut butter cups are packed with 20 grams of protein, super low in carbs and such a healthier alternative when the craving hits! I ate one peanut butter cup as a mid morning snack and the other cup for my mid afternoon snack (120 calories + 10 grams of protein per cup).
So let’s compare their nutritional stats…
That’s about 5 teaspoons of sugar for two Reese’s pieces peanut buttercups! I don’t know about you but I much rather have the high protein peanut butter cups that only have 1 gram of sugar, which is equivalent to a quarter of a teaspoon – big difference right!?
Ingredients to the original Reese’s Pieces peanut butter cups for the sake of comparison.
So here’s what we know:
- Their a way healthier alternative to the original Reese’s Pieces peanut butter cups
- They taste good
- They look good

Besides consuming those ^^ delicious peanut butter cups for snacks, I had an overall amazing day of tasty food!
Breakfast was coffee (of course! ), whole grain toast and an omelet (2 egg whites + 1 whole egg) with pesto, laughing cow cheese, spinach, canadian ham and artichoke hearts. I definitely need to add more omelets to my life – I forget how good they are!
For lunch, I used the rest of my salad from Sunday’s dinner to add in my hummus and turkey meatball wrap.
We had a craving for Chinese food last night so it was a good thing I picked up some Chickenless Mandarin Orange Morsels from Trader Joe’s when I was there over the weekend. I served it with a side of brown rice, sauteed bell peppers and a generous serving of sriracha sauce.
