Munchies® BBQ Flavour Crunchy Coated Peanuts – OU

I picked up a large bag (210 g) of “Munchies® BBQ Flavour Crunchy Coated Peanuts” from Frito Lay Canada in Toronto last week. While I wasn’t looking for a “healthy snack” I was looking for something different to try and since I love almost anything BBQ Flavored I decided to go with these.

I don’t know what I was really expecting from a crunchy coated peanut perhaps something along the lines of a beer nut, but that’s not what I got. My first taste revealed something so salty and almost void of any BBQ flavor what so ever. There is a bit of heat, and some our nondescript flavor, but I guarantee you its doesn’t taste like any other BBQ flavored snack I’ve ever had from Frito Lay. I barely managed to eat a bit more than 2 handfuls.

I will say this about the snack, they are definitely crunchy! Whatever they used to coat the peanuts gives them an almost a potato-chip like crunch. The picture on the packaging shows the coating very clearly.

I looked around the Frito Lays Canada website trying to find a great picture of this product and some additional information, but was very hard pressed to even find the one I used. There is virtually no information about this product other than its name and when I looked at the US version of the site, it didn’t even mention it. My guess is that they are testing this product in Canada.

To that I can say lucky for the US. While I’m sure I will eventually finish the bag I purchased, I’m in no rush. I can only recommended this product if you really like over salted snacks with just a touch of heat.

I give it 1.5 out 5.
