Three Tigers – Spicy Wasabi Mix (Tesco) [By @SpectreUK]



I’ve recently become quite partial to Wasabi Peas, so seeing a packet of Spicy Wasabi Mix in the local supermarket made me more than a little over excited. From the photograph you’ll see there were several different coated peanuts and Japanese crackers in the bag, so I thought I’d try one flavour after another and write notes about them in true professional blogging review style (well...ish!). First of all I checked over the packet, made by Three Tigers in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, the 100g bag contained 447 calories, with 20.2g of fat and 12g of sugar. Looking at the ingredients, they included; rice 43%, peanuts 14%, palm oil, sugar, wheat flour, soy sauce, garlic, onion, cheese, wasabi, chilli, pepper, sesame seed, salt, and seaweed.

I tried the green coated peanuts first which had a refreshing crunchy wasabi burn. Second I tried chilli Japanese red crackers which had a very tasty chilli burn to them. Third I tasted the sesame seed coated peanut balls which had a very crunchy medium heat. Fourth were the Wasabi green Japanese crackers which literally blew my head off with their sheer Wasabi nose tingling burn. Fifth was the brown Japanese crackers which had a lovely Szechwan flavour. Finally, sixth was the hard brown dough ball that had a mild spiced coated peanut flavour. I found that this Spicy Wasabi Mix had an excellent variety of flavours which would go down very well indeed whilst sharing around with friends in a snack bowl. I would definitely have these again.

I havn't noticed if you've tried the pea and wasabi dip from marks and spenders - if you're a wasabi fan you should give it a try - it's delicious and rather addictive!
