Foodie Friday: Shoyu Peanuts

Shoyu peanuts: soy sauce flavored nuts with a crunchy edible shell

I wasn’t quite sure what to think about these treats when a family friend brought them from Hawaii. Looking at the package, I noticed the label of “shoyu peanuts.” Shoyu basically equates to soy sauce, so I was hesitant about the flavor choice.

However, when I tried them, I really enjoyed these peanuts. They’ve got a satisfying savory taste. They actually remind me of Boston baked beans (the red sugar-coated peanuts–remember those?). Except that instead of sweetness, they deliver stir-fry associated deliciousness.

What kind of nutty combos have you tried?
