Trader Joe’s Wasabi Peanuts: Wowsers. If you enjoy wasabi peas, you’ve got to try these. The wasabi kick varies from peanut to peanut, but there are some which pack an incredible punch. This may be due to the fact that, unlike wasabi peas, these peanuts are entirely encased in a shell which, in certain cases, allows the interior of the snack to crumble into a fine powder that will invariably shoot up the back of your nose, leaving you in tears for 30 seconds or more. It’s so intense, it almost seems weaponized.
