Among the various offerings of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is this commanding chocolate. Just look at the name: not peanut butter cup (Rocky Mountain does sell some mini ones), but bucket. Sounds like a proper sweet to gorge yourself on. It’s something bigger than the Cambria Huckleberry Fudge was, as well.
They’re available in white, milk, and dark chocolate, though not all kinds may be in store. When I picked this one up, there weren’t any milk chocolate ones. Which was just fine by me since I always get dark, anyway. That may clash with my less-than-perfect review of the Dark Chocolate bar, but I’m not sure they’re even the same variety. This one has a lighter color. Then a peanut butter addition hardly makes if the same experience. All the same, if I end up with a too big piece of the chocolate plain, my taste buds do react with some defiance.
Now let’s return to that peanut butter filling. There’s quite a bit of it, spilling out almost liquidly when it’s fresh. If you’re like me, on the other hand, it’ll harden to a more regular peanut butter state before it’s gone. Still tastes good, though. It’s a very light tan color. Just a shade lighter and it would be off-white. Very smooth, especially in this afore-stated freshness. Buttery taste, finished with an explosion of peanuts. Given that the chocolate is thick (very thick on the sides) and the filling is soft, the two flavors don’t necessarily combine much. They end up as separate acts in your mouth. Here, I think, is the reason they take me so long to finish. You can get the chocolate and peanut butter together if you bite off tiny pieces from the thick shell while licking the filling. Treat it a little more like a lollipop or ice cream cone. That makes it a captivating sweet.
