Trader Joe’s Salted Blister Peanuts Review
Blister Peanuts? What with that name? That really sounds awful, but in reality, they are some of the best peanuts you can buy! Trader Joe’s has had these peanuts on its shelves for decades. It seems like they have passed the test of time and one of those things I buy over and over again through the years. It’s like a dear friend I haven’t seen for a long time and turn around there are the Trader Joe’s Blister Peanuts!
This is a pretty simple product. Peanuts and Salt. But ingredients can be deceiving. It’s all in the process of roasting these peanuts that make them so special. They say on the packaging that they are dunked in water to remove the red skin and then roasted and this process makes them extra crunchy.
I have to agree, these are the crunchiest peanuts I’ve ever had. The nice thing about them too is that they are pretty darn big peanuts! I love eating peanuts. They are a great snack and fill me up instead of eating something like bread or crackers. Plus my kids love them too.
The only downside to these nuts is that they are a little too salty. I wish they would cut back the salt by a third and I think they would be perfect! Of course, they are loaded with fat, but you know everything in moderation. Plus, peanuts are a good source of fiber and protein, so don’t feel too guilty about eating them. I really only eat them straight out of the bag and the only recipes I use peanuts are in Thai food where I chop them up and they are exceptionally good for sprinkling on top of my Phad Thai.
As I said before, these are some of my favorite products at Trader Joe’s. I usually have a couple of bags floating around the house for me and the kids. I would give them a perfect 10 but they can be a little too salty for me and I love my salt!
I am going to give Trader Joe’s Salted Blister Peanuts 9 Bells!
