Yushoi Sweet Chilli with Lemon Pea Snaps (Waitrose) By @SpectreUK

Back in mid 2017 NLi10 wrote about the Ready Salted variety of these 'pea snaps', or 'rice sticks' as they were called then. These Sweet Chilli with Lemon Pea Snaps sound like a hotter variety with a fiery looking ring around the Yushoi. I do like to search out alternative snacks to nuts and crisps, and I'm a big fan of chilli and lemon as a flavour. I don't think I've ever tried sweet chilli and lemon before though. So I thought I'd give them a go…

On opening the packet there were quite a few greenish orange sticks inside. I can see what NLi10 meant why the manufacturer didn't call them 'pea sticks'! I had to test them first, and yes, they do snap! There's a sweet and salty flavour to start with from each pea snap, then the lemon comes through just before the chilli. The chilli flavouring actually caught the back of my throat, which is peculiar, because these Sweet Chilli with Lemon Pea Snaps aren't particularly hot in chilli heat, but they are more than just a little spicy. They are certainly flavoursome and I'd definitely recommend them for an alternative snack!
