We found these little fellas at a Mexican grocery store.
They were over in the candy/snacks area...don't remember if the kids picked them out or if I did.
Japanese Peanuts? I thought maybe they were a variety of peanuts, rather than a regular old peanut coated with a shell that is flavored with soy sauce.
I tried looking for a recipe - thinking maybe you could make your own - but didn't find anything.
These peanuts have a hard shell - so it adds some crunch. The kids and I really liked them - and you can well imagine them being a bit addictive. They do have a salty flavor with a hint of sweetness and also some spicy hotness.
The ingredients on the package include: peanuts, wheat flour, rice flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, soy sauce and potato starch.
If you are wanting to give someone some homemade mixed nut or "nuts & bolts" party mixture - I think these would be a nice addition.
