In case you forgot to choose up a bag of plain peanuts and a shaker of Seasoning in a Pickle in your final Dealer Joe’s run, no worries. TJ’s has your again. They’ve gone and blended pickle flavors into peanuts for you. It is nearly as in the event that they tried mixing the aforementioned pickle seasoning mix with peanuts and realized it is absurdly messy. And it isn’t solely messy, however not sufficient seasoning sticks to the nuts. In order that they went and…I truthfully do not know what they did. I feel they really pickled these nuts! <reaches down inside and finds the restraint to keep away from any juvenile “deez nuts” jokes>
The again of the bag provides us hints however no actual solutions. It is says the peanuts are “infused” with pickle taste. Afterward within the spiel, they use the phrase “imbued.” It mentions there isn’t any powder within the equation. It is true. There’s not. And the nuts aren’t oily in any respect, both. They could even be much less oily than common peanuts in some way. Sonia stored remarking how dry they had been. However they actually have a pickle style to them.
At first, we each thought the pickle taste was a little bit on the weak facet, however then after a number of handfuls, we felt the briny pickliness construct up on our tongues. I won’t have minded a bit extra pickle style, however Sonia was happy with the depth of the flavour.
They really look equivalent to common Virginia peanuts. There isn’t any inexperienced colour, no seen flecks of dill, nothing. Similar to they’ll edit genomes and create vegetation that yield extra fruit or be drought-resistant or no matter, I feel possibly they spliced some DNA and cross-bred peanuts with pickles to make these. <Cue feedback the place folks inform me pickles are simply pickled cucumbers and that pickles do not have their very own genetic code blah blah blah yadda yadda science science science>
$2.49 for the bag. Sonia likes them greater than I do and would purchase them once more. I am on the fence. 4 stars from her. Three from me.
