These peanuts are intensely sweet and salty with the best crunch as if deep fried. It really is deep fried. It has to be deep fried to taste this good and be this addicting. I was introduced to these by Wela who, during a trip home, had eaten bags of these peanuts with her dad. When he found out that she liked them, he tried to pass almost 20 bags of this stuff in her luggage to bring to Anaheim. I'm glad he failed at that otherwise, I would have eaten them all.
