I love peanuts. They are nutty and full of flavour. I like the kind that have no sugar or salt added. Just the pure taste of peanut. When we were young, my parents bought raw peanuts. Yes raw… and then we fried them in hot oil and enjoyed. So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered this peanut bag at the State Fair. It’s from Valley View Pecan Company
The label on the bag:
Hot and Spicy Peanuts.
Ingredients: peanuts, vegetable oil, salt and spices.
Real simple. Took me back to the good ol’ times. I could not resist. I bought them on the spot.
Now compare this with the heavy weight branded and well known,
Planters Dry Roasted Peanuts.
Ingredients: Peanuts, sea salt, sugar, cornstarch, monosodium glutamate, gelatin, dried yeast, corn syrup solids, paprika, onion and garlic powders, spices, natural flavor.
Whew! I ran out of breath just saying that.
So which do you think I’m eating now…. the great Planter’s brand or my local brand of peanuts.. you guess……
