Taste test: These sunflower seed butter cups had the same form factor as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, with the same two cups to a pack, and from the outside the look of the cups was very similar.
I bit in to find that even the interior looked a lot like a Reese's, as there was a smooth milk chocolate exterior and a creamy filling made from sunflower seeds that didn't look much different from peanut butter. The taste was definitely different from peanut butter, though not vastly so. It seemed saltier (and obviously tasted like sunflower seeds) but it was not bad at all, definitely a taste I could get used to. The sunflower butter was smoother than the thick peanut butter that Reese's uses. A good alternative if you need to avoid peanuts.

Smell test: Good, actually not all that different from the smell of a Reese's.
