Munchies Crunchy Coated Peanuts Sweet & Spicy

Taste test: Having reviewed several kinds of coated peanuts over the years, I thought I knew what to expect when I opened this narrow bag, but I ended up being quite surprised upon opening it. Generally, these snacks consist of nuts coated in a crunchy starch of some kind, with an outer flavoring layer. A look inside revealed some coated nuts that were a bit smaller than most other kinds, and some much smaller. I poured them onto a plate to find that only about half of the nuts had the starch coating, so in many cases, the flavor was applied directly to the peanuts.

I crunched into some of the coated ones to find that they had a very tasty seasoning — sweet, with a nice kick of heat — but none of the crunch that was promised. The other ones were just flavored nuts. They tasted quite good, but the lack of coating in many cases, and the lack of crunch in all cases, really detracted from the product.
