Taste test: This large bag contained lots of peanuts with a bumpy orange coating covering roughly half of the exteriors. They looked very different than other starch-coated peanuts, as the irregular surface was a big departure from others with a thicker and smoother coating.
We crunched in to find a good crunch and a whole lot of flavor, as the Indian spices in the coating were intense and fairly hot. The spices mixed well with the taste of the peanuts, but the heat was sufficiently intense that it helped to have a beverage handy to cool things down. Very good!
