Behind the Snack

Our director of Product Innovation and resident foodie, Travis Rea, tells us the story behind how this snack was concepted. “I had visited this tiny little hole-in-the wall Thai restaurant in NYC and ordered curry. It turned out to be the best curry I’ve ever had. I complimented the owner on the fantastic dish and he revealed it was a generations old recipe from his mother.” Safe to say this snack has some history!

Flavor File

The flavor profile is based on Massaman Curry. Massaman (or Matsaman or Mussulman) Curry originated in 17th century Central Thailand. It’s influenced by Malay and Indian cuisines. The flavors of the Massaman Curry come from spices that are not frequently used in other Thai curries. The spices were brought to Thailand from the Malay Archipelago and South Asia by foreigners through trade routes.

Fun Fact

What makes this snack so special? “Most of the other flavored nuts on the market are just tossed with some flavored powder and stuck into a bag….our nuts are actually coated so the flavor ends up on the nut and not the bottom of the bag,” says Travis.

Curry up and try these nuts, they won’t be around for long!

    I wish I had gotten more! These were so delicious and reminiscent of a bowl of Thai-style curry. I ate an entire bag throughout the course of a single day. So tasty and addictive!

    What an amazing choice of spices! I love Thai dishes, and I am sure these peanuts will not disappoint as well. And it’s true that the flavor stays better when it’s coated and not just stuck.
