Snack #143- Trader Joe-San Wasabi Peas

Trader Joe-San Wasabi Peas

Wasabi peas are pretty standard, and most of the brands taste pretty similar. The main variation is the level of spiciness of the wasabi. These are one of the less spicy wasabi peas I have tasted. They are nice because you can really taste the pea flavor before you get a little kick of wasabi burn at the end. But on the scale of wasabi pea heat they definitely rank pretty low. The heat dissipates quite quickly which is bad for a spice lover but good for someone who wants to rapidly eat many wasabi peas!

Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 3/10

Bottom Line: Short-lived wasabi spice.
