Are Aldi’s Choceur Peanut Butter Cups Better Than Reese’s?

Aldi Choceur Peanut Butter Cups

Aldi’s peanut butter cups are a rich snack that can definitely cure your sweet tooth. The peanut butter filling is creamy and sweet and has a good ratio of chocolate to peanut butter. The size of each cup is almost identical to the miniature Reese’s Cups. They come in a resealable bag and are not individually wrapped. My store only sells them in the miniature version that comes in a 12oz bag and they’re found as soon as you walk in the door near the other candy.

Compared to Reese’s Cups

Aldi Choceur peanut butter cupsThe Aldi choceur’s peanut butter filling is much creamier and tastes more like sweetened peanut butter, whereas Reese’s cups are a little dryer with a bit more texture. I’m not sure if the texture comes from the cups being more mass produced and therefor more processed or if it’s intentional. I also feel like the chocolate to peanut butter ratio is different. There appears to be more peanut butter in the Aldi peanut butter cups than in Reese’s. The other main difference is that Aldi does not individually wrap each cup, which is not a big deal and might be bad thing for your diet since these are easy to grab and eat as you walk by. Overall do not expect a Reese’s cup replica, just think of it as a chocolate peanut butter snack and you will be happy.


Reese’s Cup Cost: $4.00 (12oz)

Overall the taste is good of the Aldi peanut butter cups and a lot of people do seem to like these better. The creamy middle seems less processed than Reese’s and that’s a good thing! But side by side there is no question that these are not your classic Reese’s cup.
