I haven’t eaten any wasabi flavoured snacks for quite some time and then Cinabar showed me lots of snack pots that had recently been sent to us from Dilly & Wolf, in Norwich. Of all the little snack pots these Wasabi & Horseradish Roasted Peas struck me as a 'first to try'. There was a roasted pea smell with a nose tingling wasabi after aroma on peeling back the top of the plastic pot. The little inoffensive almost innocent looking peas looked like butter wouldn’t melt on first opening. Grabbing a finger or two full I proceeded to dump them fairly casually into my mouth. The little dried roasted peas had a decent crunch to begin with, then the wasabi flavour struck like an instant hot hammer from a forge on the anvil of my tongue and instantly made my nose hairs stand on end. I managed not to sneeze. I did have to wipe my nose a couple of times! The additional horseradish flavour gave my tastebuds an extra kick at the end of the flavour too. These roasted wasabi and horseradish peas were certainly an afternoon pick me up and kick me around treat. They were very moreish and dangerously nose tingly. Try them as they were great for a couple or more days’ worth accompaniment with my lunchtime sandwich.
