Taste test: This bag contained clusters of various sizes, consisting mostly of peanuts, and to a much lesser extent sunflower seeds, stuck together by sweet stuff. The promise of habanero heat was what had me craving them. There was some seasoning powder stuck to particular areas, presumably providing the habanero kick.
I grabbed a small piece and crunched in to find a somewhat soft feel, with occasional crunch, and a habanero flavor that was far more subdued than I was expecting — as in, barely any. The heat grew a bit in the aftertaste, but it still wasn't much. I ate several more pieces, all larger than that first one, and the habanero experience wasn't notably different. So there was more Feisty heat than peanut clusters that don't promise any at all, but compared with habanero snacks in general, there really wasn't much.

Smell test: Definitely can smell the peppers, though they seemed more sweet than hot.
From the package: “peanuts infused with sweet habanero” ... “so spicy, so good.” ... “Vegan” ... “Low sodium” ... “Good things come in clusters, and better things come to those with adventures [sic] taste buds. Spice up your day with a handful of hot and delicious Sherwood nut clusters. Plant based, zero trans fats, you won't find a more perfect anytime snack. Go nuts.”
