Ever since I was little, I’ve always loved peanut butter cups.
There’s just something magical about chocolate and peanut butter mixed together. It’s one of my favorite flavors.
Most of the peanut butter cups sold in the stores are filled with sugar, preservatives and other chemicals that you don’t want near your body.
Like most things, you can make peanut butter cups healthy if you use healthy ingredients.
I was pleasantly surprised when I came across the new SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb peanut butter cups in my local BJ’s last week.
We’ve been making our own keto peanut butter cups at home from a recipe we found, but after looking these over thoroughly, I knew I had to try them.
This is probably the first thing I ever bought from SlimFast in my life. The ingredients in their products usually keep me far away from anything they make.
If you are interested in trying these, I am going to give you my review of them below and tell you everything you need to know before you buy!
Even if nutrition isn’t your thing, you have almost certainly heard of SlimFast.
SlimFast was started in the late 1970s and was all the rage in the 1980s and 1990s for the weight loss shakes they have become known for.
I don’t know for sure, but I think they had a big hand in creating the meal replacement shake.
They are still widely known for the shakes, which they still make.
They’ve added other products like bars and powders, but the shakes are their main claim to fame.
I have no idea if their shakes work for anyone. It’s not something I would personally try, but I’m sure there are people out there that have lost weight with them.
I’m not here to bash them as a company, but I would never usually feature anything they make on my site.
I know that they are probably just capitalizing on the keto craze with their keto fat bombs, but I’m not complaining.
About the SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb
Fat bombs are a big thing in the keto community. They are a high fat snack that allow you to stay in ketosis.
The fat in fat bombs usually comes from nuts or MCT oil.
There are some great recipes out there that are easy to make.
I’ve found fat bombs to be very convenient while on the keto diet. They curb your hunger quickly between meals when you don’t feel like eating.
It’s amazing how satisfying fat can be in your diet. Once you get used to it, you won’t miss carbs.
With carbs, you’re always hungry. Your body constantly wants more. With fat, you will stay full for hours.
These SlimFast keto fat bombs are perfect for those times when you need a small snack to keep you going.
They’re basically a keto dessert. Do you really need them? No, but life is more fun with desserts. Especially when they fit into your diet.
When I picked these up to examine them, I was expecting to be disappointed with the ingredients. That wasn’t the case with these.
They are free of gluten, artificial sweeteners, preservatives flavors and colors! There is also zero added sugar in them.
The fat in them comes from coconut oil MCT’s and peanut butter.
They are low-carb, low-sugar and obviously keto friendly.
Since keto has been big for a while, there are companies out there making fat bombs to save you the hassle of making them yourself if you’re not Betty Crocker.
It’s definitely more convenient, but I tried another fat bomb a while back and was less than impressed with it so I was a little nervous to try these.
I’m glad that I took a chance on them.
If you are used to the commercial peanut butter cups, these are going to be an adjustment for you.
If you are already on a ketogenic diet, you aren’t eating those and are used to very little sugar.
These will be a treat to anyone on a keto diet.
Overall, I really enjoy the taste of these. I think that SlimFast did a great job trying to make them taste as close to real peanut butter cups as possible.
The peanut butter is not overwhelming, and they are not too sweet from the stevia.
While I like the taste, it’s short-lived and dissipates quickly. Not the longest lasting thing I’ve ever had. That would be my biggest complaint.
While I still like the peanut butter cups I make from the recipe I posted above, I think that these are a great choice if you don’t want to make your own.
Ingredients and price
Here are the ingredients: Milk chocolate coating (chocolate, erythritol, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, inulin (natural vegetable fiber), nonfat dry milk, soy lecithin, natural vanilla extract, salt, stevia leaf extract, MCT oil blend (palm kernel, palm, coconut), inulin, peanut butter (peanuts), erythritol, milk protein isolate, peanut flour, peanut oil, soy lecithin, stevia leaf extract and salt.
Are these the highest ingredients possible? Probably not, but there is nothing earth-shattering in these that would stop me from buying them.
That means that the ingredients are actually pretty good because I am very picky about ingredients as you know.
I think for a SlimFast product, these ingredients are much better than what you would find in some of their other stuff.
I paid around $20.00 for a 20-pack box of these from BJ’s. They are currently a little cheaper on Amazon, but expect to pay around that.
At a dollar a cup, that’s a great price for something like this. There are similar products out there which will cost you significantly more.
Here’s the nutritional breakdown for 1 serving (1 cup):
Total fat 8g
Saturated fat 0g
Trans fat 0g
Total carbs 7g
Dietary fiber 3g
Total sugars 1g
Would I buy them again?
I’m almost done with the box I bought. I have a few left which will probably disappear over the next day or two.
I would definitely buy these again. Probably not every week, but from time to time.
They are a keto-friendly snack that does a good job of curbing my hunger without throwing me off my diet.
Even if you are not on the keto diet, these are still a good option if you are looking for a low-carb snack.
I’ve enjoyed these and was pleasantly surprised!
Good job SlimFast! These are a winner for me!
