Happy weekend Chilli Padawanzzzzzzzz! Today is “Fiery Friday” and Uncle Darth has a cracking product for you all to wrap your laughing gear around! The product in question comes from none other than the purveyours of fine tasting pain, Hot Headz, run by Dr Hotz himself, Mr Stu Mcallister!
This product is basically the first of its kind in the UK and probably the world! Sure there been others before it…but not quite like this, with *this* particular pepper! So without further ado, let me introduce this tastebud orgasm..

Ingredients:

Peanuts (95%), Trinidad scorpion mix (4%), rapeseed oil.

So, what we have here is a sexy little tin of peanuts, but these are no ordinary peanuts, oh hell no! These are “Who Dares Burns 2nd Assault: Trinidad Scorpion Peanuts” and they are here to kick all other chilli peanuts to the kerb, and show you how its done!!

As you’ll be able to see in the video, what makes this product stand out from the rest is the packaging, they come sealed up in a bag, which is then sealed in a tin, with full artwork present wrapped around the tin, and on top, with the iconic WDB logo right in the centre!

Anyway, enough from me, lets get this video cranking!

Well, well, well…as you can see, those peanuts were both HOT and tasty! I felt quite privileged to receive a product that i got to fully enjoy, rather then end up spewing up due to the high amount of heat, these nuts were genuinely delicious.

For a good chillihead stylee mix of heat AND flavour, these were out and out perfect, they had a nice solid crunch to them (I’ve had some that go soft because of the flavouring process, but these were awesome!) and the flavour was very straightforward, but nice and savoury, with an almost fruity, but unmistakeably Scorpion burn!

There isn’t much more you could do to increase the appeal of these peanuts to be honest, they will definitely appeal to both hardcore chilli heads, and of course, newbies who want to spread their wings a little bit and appreciate a quality product packing A LOT of flavour and heat!

I think the only gripe I have is that these seem a little pricey at £3.99 for 80g, you are getting a *premium* tin for that, but perhaps this could be a “starter kit” for those whom want the awesome resealable tin, then maybe do a larger foil bag, without the tin and market it as a “refill” at perhaps the same price but for more nuts?

That’s about the only place I can find fault with these, as presentation and flavour is beyond what you would usually expect from ANY chilli snack!

Head on over to the Hot-Headz website right now and grab yourself a tin of these before they sell out (which they will, once people have a taste for them!!).

Right Chilli Padawanz, that’s it from me this time round, I’ll see you all soon for another Chilefoundry review!

And of course…may the sauce be with you, always!
