While traveling to Norway for a friend’s wedding we stumbled upon this unique spicy snack which is basically a whole peanut surrounded by a crispy, savory coating and dusted with paprika. In form they are similar to the Asian peanuts tried in Costa Rica but in flavor they are the standard European paprika seasoning which tastes like pepper but is not spicy. The peanut center is tasty and the coating adds a well-seasoned paprika taste so they are an enjoyable snack but not spicy at all.
We wish to provide a comprehensive exploration of the wide, wonderful world of the spicy snack. The spicy snack comes in a variety of forms, from chips to crunchies to Chex Mix. We intend to sample each and every form of spicy snack to determine the individual strengths and weaknesses of every flavorful sack. Not for the faint of palate. Extreme gastronomists only!
