Wasabi Nuts

Published on March 8th, 2010.

I guess you’d enjoy them if you’re really into wasabi and nuts, as it’s just a combination of the two, but it’s definitely an acquired taste, if that. So give them a wide berth if you’re someone who has to like food instantly or give it up.

If you like chowing down on them, then great, whether you’re munching away Japan style while playing a little bingo on TV and catching up on Naruto or you’re out and about, they’re certainly a conversation starter. Even if the conversation mainly revolves around your heroic quest to eat the entire bag, but hey, you’re a soldier, right? Right.

I expected them to taste better to be honest, but they’re definitely better than the tasteless crystal candies I bought at Daiso in Harajuku^^

Do you like wasabi nuts?

    Meh. They sell those here in Singapore. I don’t care for them. I’d rather have American Corn Nuts.

      I’ve never tried American corn nuts… I’m a chili peanut kind of guy^^

    I like dried green peas, with or without the wasabi.

    They’re peas, though, right? There are wasabi peas and then there are wasabi nuts, but those are definitely peas. I ate both as snacks as a kid, but I like wasabi peas better.

      I honestly couldn’t tell the difference, haha. They’re green, hard and they taste like peanuts with wasabi on them, but you’re probably right :P

    Wasabi Nuts are NOT for eating! I mean, HAVE YOU SEEN THAT COLOR?!!
    The first time I tried it I had to eat a bar of soap to get that taste out of my mouth. I do like me some Wasabi here and there (preferrably with sushi), but in the form of Wasabi Nuts… they fall in the same category as Natto (including 生卵-slapped on top).

    I even get a weird taste in my mouth just by looking at them :P
    (Something that looks like goober usually doesnt taste good, and no I don’t do goober, eeew)

    Those are peas, homeboy. I love ‘em, eat ‘em all the time. I do like wasabi peanuts better, but they’re way different.
