Behind the Snack: Creme Brulee Peanuts

Sure, you could spend hours in the kitchen attempting to make creme brulee but seriously who’s got the time? Put away the blow torch, sit back and grab a bag of these tres delicious peanutsinspired by the real thing.

 

Travis Rea, Director of Product Innovation, says “We wanted to capture the texture, crunch and flavor of creme brulee in a new, unique form.” Yep, we totally nailed it.

First, we started with whole, extra-large Virginia peanuts, then gently roasted them in small batches. True to it’s French form, we added a crisp sugar coating that perfectly achieves a crunchy creme brulee-like shell.
