Planters Wicked Hot Chipotle Peanuts are available at your favorite snack food purveyor. We found a bag in the snack section at our local consumer electronic store. Everyday we are finding snack food companies are starting to cater to spicier tastes, and I say it's about time!
You used to have to find some Ass Kickin' Peanuts or some torched up nut snack from Dave's Gourmet Foods if you wanted to feel the fire in your snacky treats. Today even Planters is lighting up their peanuts with fiery Chipotle peppers.
These smoky toasty hot peanuts were nice and hot compared to the usual mainstream snacks but I would not call them hot in Chile-head terms. They will warm you up and they are a tasty improvement on plain old salted peanuts
Is the Chile-head taste spreading to mainstream America? I would have to say it's definitely spreading... like wildfire.
