Best Bites: The Loving Cup

Our new afternoon snack: Sun Cups.


With the price of peanut butter up 20 to 40 percent from a year ago, tearing into a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup is, more than ever, a guilty pleasure. Fans might consider an alternative: Enter Sun Cups, a Boulder-based company making chocolate candies filled with sunflower butter. The taste, while slightly different than peanut butter, is still creamy and decadent (while packing fewer carbs and less sugar and sodium). Sun Cups are gluten-free, nut-free, organic, vegetarian, and kosher. Thanks to these—not to mention the peppermint- and caramel-filled varieties—we’ve got a new afternoon treat.
