The name soya nuts is somewhat misleading, for they are not nuts at all, just soya beans. They are made by soaking soya beans and roasting them untill they are crisp, brown and crunchy.
The price is 75p for 100g, which for me provides 4 servings. This makes them cheaper than other nuts, and they can be used where you would use other nuts in a range of recipes; salads, stews ect.
The only ingredients are:
Soya Nuts: Soya Bean, Salt, Soya Bean Oil.
The nutritional values are as follows:

So as you can see, they are a very wholesome and healthy snack. Comparable with nuts due to their low carb and high protein values, but they are lower in fat so much lower in calories than an equivilent portion of nuts.
I love these things, they are yummy and similar to peanuts in taste and texture. however, I do find them a little bit hard. I don't mind, but those who have an aversion to hard / very crunchy foods might struggle with these.
