Tesco Value Salted Peanuts
Advantages: Nice for a snack.
I always buy Peanuts of any brand, and I quite like the cheaper brands too, as I think they are excellent value for money, I find them very tasty and since I eat a lot of snacks and Peanuts are one of my favourites, I cannot resist them and I have been recently buying more as it is near the Christmas season and I have a lot of guests visit me in the Christmas holidays and I like to have sweets and snacks ready available to offer them.
These Peanuts come in a plastic wrapper and it is very basic in design, and are from Tesco Value range, the contents are good sized nuts, they are salted and they are not at all bland in the taste, they are quite the opposite and taste deliciously good, the texture is quite crunchy and they are very easy to chew and swallow, the amount of salt is just right for my liking, they are not too over powering in the amount as I find some can be with some other brands.
Some of the nuts are in halves and some whole, the mixture of the both look nice in dishes if set out for parties as mine often can be, the quality is very good with these and I really think they taste nice, I have never been disappointed with the nuts and my guests quite like them too and my family, some of my older grandchildren eat them as they are much older but they are not suitable for the younger ones, as they can choke on them, and so I place the dishes where they cannot eat them, as the amount of salt which covers the nuts are not suitable for the smaller children or the size as they are too small for them to eat., but that is just common sense as to what age these are offered.
The nuts are Roasted and are pale in colour but do not look as though they are not edible, they look exactly the same as the branded ones and I think they are worth the money of just 28p for a 200g bag, it tells me on the packet that they are suitable for Vegetarians, and once opened it is recommended to store them in an air tight container to keep them fresh, but once I have opened a packet of these, they do not last that long, as I eat them constantly until they have all vanished as they are so tasty.
Per 100g they contain, 600 calories, carbohydrate 8.0g of which sugars 4.5g, fat 51g of which saturates 8.9g, and so they are very high in fat and calories but I think they are fine for a treat or snack, and although I am not on a weight loss plan, I find them very filling indeed and they curve my cravings when I am looking for a nice tasty snack, especially while watching television in the evening.
I recommend these ones as they are very cheap and an excellent brand for lower budgets or just to try as they to me taste just as good as some of the higher priced brands, and they are a fab food for nibble food at parties etc and are excellent value for the price.
I rate them 5 stars.
Summary: Good value tasting Peanuts.
