Taste test: These coated peanuts had the same intense red color as Barcel's Fuego flavor of Takis, with the coated pieces varying a lot in size and shape.
We crunched in to find a crunchy coating and soft peanut interior, with an excellent tasty mix of peanuts and hot peppers, plus some lime too, but not too much of it. As for heat, they were indeed hot, and it was a nicely flavorful kind of hot, but the heat itself was not quite so super-super hot as that same-name flavor of Takis. Very good!
