Taste test: This bag had a bright smiley face on the front and individually wrapped peanut packets inside. I opened a packet to find that the peanuts were of the coated variety, but they turned out to be quite different from the many other coated peanuts we've reviewed.
The differences started with looks: They had a lumpier appearance than most coated peanuts. The texture was different too: There was a softer crunch from the coating, sort of a crumbly feel, which might have something to do with the wheat-based coating. And the taste defied expectations: On first bite, the taste was mildly sweet, not a spicy taste at all. The hot peppers did arrive for the aftertaste, a very nice flavor! A really good one!
