We recently opened a few bags of B More Nutz potato chip coated peanuts called Nutterz to bring you this review of a great spicy snack.
Dick Taylor, founder and president of B More Nutz (outside Baltimore, or Bawlmer, hon), has brought an amazing new food concept to the USA. Inspired by the snacks he enjoyed on his pub crawls in Scandinavia, he has created an extensive line of potato chip coated peanuts, called Nutterz. These are so addictive, with so much flavor (and some heat, depending on which one you select) that I’ve eaten about a quarter of a bag, just now, in the name of research. (Ah, the sacrifices we make!)
With flavor profiles ranging from savory regional flavors (Crab Flavor, reminiscent of Old Bay), to Bacon Cheddar (one of the best sellers), Nuclear (too hot for me), and my personal favorite, Jalapeno Cheddar, he has brought an incredibly crunchy, “OMG, these are so good” bar/football party/hang out with your buddies/pop in your mouth snack foods. Not greasy like potato chips, not too salty like some nuts, I cannot say enough good things about Nutterz. Sold in 9 oz. resealable bags or 5 lb Party Pails, these are sure to start popping up in bars and living rooms across the country.
I was curious as to how these wonderful things are actually created. Here’s the info from his website, bmorenutz.com:
We take a whole peanut, skin on, and coat it with potato batter—then fry it briefly in 100% pure peanut oil to give it a crispy shell. Seasonings from all-natural sources are added to give each Nutterz a unique flavor. Unlike potato chips, these won’t go stale… and we’ve never kept them around long enough anyway.
Until I read this, I hadn’t realized the skins were left on the peanuts.( I never liked the “paper” found on regular Spanish peanuts). They are so light and crunchy, savory and yes, addictive. Believe me when I say you must try these. Go to www.bmorenutz.com, or www.peppers.com, to place your order. Get a few bags because they go fast!
