While most of us think fondly of the peanut butter-filled chocolate treats, they can be lethal to people with peanut allergies.
Sun Cups are nut-free, gluten-free, GMO-free, and certified Kosher. They come in dark chocolate and milk chocolate, which come as the original sunflower butter-filled cups (closest to the peanut butter cup model), or as caramel-filled cups or dark mint chocolate cups.

In addition to being totally allergy-friendly, they're delicious. The chocolate is creamy, the fillings are decadent, and the size isn't skimpy.
It's a great lunchbox treat for a kid at a peanut-free school, for a plane ride (I've heard of entire flights banning peanut products because of a single peanut-allergic passenger - understandably so, given the extreme sensitivity some have against the nuts), or just for everyday. With Christmas around the bend, they're also a great option as a stocking stuffer?
Don't want to wait until December 25, celebrate the German way.
HOLD THE PHONE. I know what you're thinking - they get gifts early???
Well, yes - but on Christmas Eve. I, however, am talking about St. Nikolaus Tag, which already comes December 6 and leaves you with a clean pair of shiny boots (you have to provide the elbow grease and the boots) as well as a bunch of yummy candy!
German kids polish a pair of boots the night before December 6, put their boots outside their bedroom door, go to sleep, and wake up the next morning to boots full of sweet treats!

And all the better if you find some Sun Cups in your boots!
You can order Sun Cups online, get them at Whole Foods, or find them in a local store or market using their store finder tool!
