Itsu – Wasabi Peas (Waitrose) [By @SpectreUK]

Made by Metcalfe’s Food Company, in London, these Itsu Wasabi Peas have a nice medium wasabi burn to start with that increased into a very nose runny and tongue tingling heat after every consecutive mouthful of peas. Whereas generally when I have a dollop of wasabi on sushi I get used to the burn pretty quickly after a few mouthfuls, it took ages for me to get used to the wasabi burn of these dried green peas. The 35g serving size suggestion at 122 calories, with 2.3g sugar and 2.3g of fat was about right, as the peas started off nice and mouth-watering, but after about 60g seemed to dry my mouth out a bit. So I’d recommend you eat half the pack at a time or share with friends to torture them with the shear wasabi heat of these peas. Also in the Itsu range there is Chocolate Edamame (er... or chocolate beans), Popcorn, Rice Cakes, Rice Pipes, Seaweed Thins and Vitamin Waters. Cinabar has the Chocolate Edamame, so I’m sure there’ll be a review on those soon!
