dark-chocolate-sun-butter-cups-484In college I had a boyfriend who caused me to have nightmares. He was a great guy but his peanut allergy had me worried that I’d eat something and inadvertently cause him to go into anaphylactic shock. It was then that I realized how many of the desserts I loved were made with peanuts. This is a real concern for those of us living with severe allergies or loved ones with allergies. It means always having to avoid those tasty allergen filled goodies.

That’s why I was so impressed with Sun Cups. These are dark or milk chocolate cups filled with sunflower seed butter. Think peanut butter cups without the fear of nuts and made in a dedicated nut-free, gluten-free facility. Finally there’s a dessert to love without fear.

This dessert is certified Kosher and non-GMO. It uses chocolate made from Rainforest Alliance Certified cacao farms. In addition to being safe of tree nuts, peanuts and gluten it’s also free of egg, soy, corn, fish and shellfish.

The sunbutter cups debuted in 2009 and since, they’ve also added caramel cups and mint cups. My dark chocolate and sunbutter cups came in my monthly gluten free Cuisine Cube delivery. Visit their stock up section to order your own.
