Recently I received a package from the Sun Cups company that had a sample of their products. I have not been able to use them in a recipe yet because I haven't had the occasion to make a dessert, but in the meantime I thought I would write a review of my impressions about the packaging and ingredients.
They sent me milk chocolate sunflower cups, caramel cups, dark chocolate sunflower cups, and mint cups. First, I think the packaging is adorable. I like their use of color and each one has a cute descriptor, like "terrifically tingly" for the mint flavor. I like how they are gluten free, peanut free, corn free, soy free, and nut free, so if you are going to have a treat and have some allergies, these would be a great option.On the back, it says that the cacao comes from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. Therefore, the cacao is sustainably sourced and supports farmers. Finally, the ingredients list is relatively short, which is something I try to look for when purchasing a packaged product. I especially like that the chocolate is soy lecithin free, which is difficult to find. These do contain dairy, so if you have a dairy allergy then you will have to beware of that.
I'm really grateful to the Sun Cups company for sending me these to try. I have a few ideas for dessert recipes, but I will need to have people over to be my taste test panel!
