****A NOTE FROM JUSTIN'S:
Even though there are no milk ingredients added to our delicious Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups and the recipe has not changed, we recently changed our label to disclose “contains milk” because they are produced on machinery that also processes our Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups and White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, which do contain milk. While there is an extensive sanitation process between each batch, the reason we made this change is two-fold, both deriving from our company’s primary fundamental – safety:
1) Justin’s is very careful about choosing and selecting only the highest quality chocolatiers to source not only its dark chocolate but all of the chocolates used in all our products. However, it is common practice for the chocolate industry to process cocoa beans on shared equipment with milk containing ingredients. So while we are extremely careful, the chance of cross-contact exists even before we purchase the chocolate.
2) In addition to sourcing the highest quality chocolate, we use the best manufacturing practices for safety and quality. Because our Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups share equipment with our Milk Chocolate and White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, which do contain dairy, the opportunity for cross-contact as we manufacture the peanut butter cups at our facilities also exists. We felt this precautionary message may help prevent an incident for those extremely sensitive to dairy.
You might see “may contain” or “manufactured on shared equipment” statements on the packages of other products in the market. Justin’s cannot speak for those other brands or their choice of on-pack statements. Although those other statements may also be appropriate, we at Justin’s have adopted the statement that has been expressly addressed by FDA guidelines. Because we take allergens very seriously, we’ve chosen to disclose that there is this possibility and we believe that a “contains milk” statement is the best way to be consistent with the FDA’s guidance on this issue.
These are awesome. I hate when my chocolate is too soft and melty, and this one was perfect and delicious. Not overly sweet. Sara on 5th Apr 2012
I would say the chocolate on its more savory then the PB. The PB is not so creamy and sweet as a candy bar should be but I liked it not super sweet . Unknown on 2nd Dec 2011
