Landmark Confections Peanut Butter Cups (Dollar Tree)

Ask people to name their favorite candy, and you’re likely to hear chocolate. You might hear Hershey’s bars, Snickers, M&M’s, or Twix. One item that is certain to be near the top of most people’s favorites list is peanut butter cups.

While Reese’s are the gold standard of peanut butter cups, my family and I also like the peanut butter cups that Aldi sells, and I’ve gotten some good chocolate and peanut butter candy from Trader Joe’s over the years.

Dollar Tree has a large candy selection with both name brands and generic brands. When I was picking up a few items at Dollar Tree recently, I discovered they sell their own peanut butter cup candy under their Landmark Confections private label.

Landmark Confections Peanut Butter Cups

Landmark Confections Peanut Butter Cups cost $1.25 for a 4.5-ounce package at Dollar Tree. That comes out to about 31 cents per ounce.

For comparison, a family-sized 17.6-ounce bag of mini Reese’s peanut butter cups cost about 38 cents per ounce at Walmart at the time of writing, so the Dollar Tree version is a good deal cheaper than name brand. Aldi currently sells its own version of peanut butter cups under its Choceur house brand for about 33 cents per ounce, which is just slightly more than the Dollar Tree peanut butter cups.

The package describes these Dollar Tree PB cups as a “chocolaty shell filled with creamy homestyle peanut butter.”

This is distributed by Greenbrier International, Inc., which is the company behind Dollar Tree. This candy was made in the U.S.

Nutrition information and ingredients. (Click to enlarge.)

Ingredients are sugar, hydrogenated vegetable oil (palm kernel and/or palm), ground peanuts, whey, cocoa (processed with alkali), peanut flour, skim milk, lactose, salt, soy lecithin, sorbitol (emulsifiers), and vanillin (artificial flavor).

If you’re looking out for allergens, the peanut butter cups contain milk, soy, and peanuts. They were manufactured in a facility that processes wheat, peanut butter, and almonds.

One package contains about three 3-piece servings. The package I bought had 12 pieces, or four 3-piece servings.

One 3-piece serving has 190 calories, 11 grams of total fat (14% DV), 8 grams of saturated fat (40% DV), 55 mg of sodium (2% DV), 20 grams of total carbohydrates (7% DV), 18 grams of total sugars, and 17 grams of added sugars (34% DV).

The peanut butter cups are individually wrapped in gold foil inside the bag.

As for how these taste, they aren’t Reese’s, but I think they’re decent in their own right, and others in my family agreed. They have plenty of chocolate, and the peanut butter filling is creamy. One of my family members didn’t care for them as much — noting that they have a different flavor — and said they’re inferior to Reese’s and to the Aldi brand of peanut butter cups. However, everyone happily ate them.

The Verdict:

Landmark Confections Peanut Butter Cups are better than I expected for Dollar Tree candy. They taste decent with good chocolate and a creamy peanut butter filling. Not everyone in my family gave them a glowing review — they’re not Reese’s, after all — but everyone gladly ate them. If you have a chocolate and PB craving and happen to be in Dollar Tree, these aren’t a bad choice, especially for the price.

  1. Has the dollar tree stores stop making the landmark mints and peanut butter cups. They are so good and can’t find them now.
