  • I recently had some spicy jumbo peanuts from KP which were gorgeous – just massive peanuts covered in a thick, orange-powdered coating of spiciness – and I thought these Domen’s ones looked like the same thing
  • To compare them again with the KP spicy peanuts, this flavour, which is predominantly of Paprika, is pleasant and has an aftertaste with a little bit of heat to it, but I prefer the sweetness of the KP ones
  • Combined with that crunchy shell which I found rather unpleasant, that Paprika did not make it taste any better to me
  • The quality of this product is good – it is purely a matter of personal taste I think

      I did not like these spicy peanuts at all. It is not that the quality of them is bad but more the fact that I was expecting something else. I recently had some spicy jumbo peanuts from KP which were gorgeous – just massive peanuts covered in a thick, orange-powdered coating of spiciness – and I thought these Domen’s ones looked like the same thing. But instead, they are big

      peanuts which are covered in a hard shell and it is the hard shell that is covered with the spicy powdered flavouring. Looking at the ingredients, that hard shell is made of wheat starch together with various spices, including Paprika. When I say the shell is hard, I mean it is crunchy and reminds me of the crunchy little sticks you get in Bombay mix. I actually like Bombay mix ...

      • but I did not like the taste of the shell on these peanuts.

        To compare them again with the KP spicy peanuts, this flavour, which is predominantly of Paprika, is pleasant and has an aftertaste with a little bit of heat to it, but I prefer the sweetness of the KP ones.

        So

        although these Dormen’s spicy peanuts are not to my taste, I hope I have helped you decide if you would like them. The quality of this product is good – it is purely a matter of personal taste I think. They do brag on the packet that their snacks are of a high quality and are to be found in Europe’s finest hotels, but I think I will stick to my KP nuts though.
