The Dormen Chilli & Lime Cashew

When you look at roasted nut products, especially at the quality end of the market, you are looking for an even coating of the flavour, with few if any broken nuts, and all of an even size. Well on all these counts this packet scores very well, the beautifully done with each nut being coated, there are very few small pieces of broken nut, and in fact most of the nuts have not even split in two.

Ingredients: Cashews (86%), Vegetable Oil, Chilli & Lime Seasoning (Salt, Sugar, Latose, Chilli Powder, Onion Powder, Malt Vinegar Powder, Preservative: Citric Acid, Ground Spice, Garlic Powder, Yeast Extract Powder, Natural Flavourings, Colour: Paprika, Lemon Powder, Spice Extracts.

The flavour on these cashews is delicious, unlike many of the extreme nuts we have seen of late, these are not going to set you mouth on fire, but with such a high quality cashew, you don’t want to hide their natural flavour. The flavouring is awesome, it provides a  good balance of heat and chilli flavour with some of the lime tang coming through, while you still know these are some classy cashews.

At £1.69 for a 90g pack cashews are never cheap, but these are a seriously high quality product and make a great snack with a nice cold beer.
