Bamboo Charcoal Peanut

Taste test: These coated peanuts looked much different from other ones we've tried. Between their black surfaces (much blacker than the dark purplish blue ones pictured on the bag) and the "Charcoal" name, we figured that they were burned in some way.

We crunched in to find that they didn't taste burnt at all, and in fact, they tasted quite good, with a very mildly sweet coating working well with the peanut within. The ingredients did actually include something called Bamboo Charcoal Powder, and some quick Interweb research revealed that it's pretty much what it sounds like, made from burning bamboo. Very good!
