Does Trader Joe´s have them ? They have cashews with just about everything else. My local Japanese supermarket, Uwajimaya´s, might have them. You going to try and roll your own? Sounds kind of intriguing....

I have no experience with deez nuts, I cannot comment, sadly. Sounds good though. Living Texas, I have had cacahuates con chili y limon. Son muy bueno.

Soy beans. In particular, what I'm talkin' 'bout, Willis, are those which have been dried and then coated with wasabi powder/paste. They are crunchy, and clear the head! Woooo-HOOOOOO!

What is your local dollar store? We have a Dollar General near. Can I get them there? And thanks for the offer, may work out a trade where I send you some chili lime peanuts.

Dollar tree, I think. I'll verify when I'm out tommorow. A swap would be cool! Then you could say you put... your... nuts...


Nah, fuggedaboudit.

No, please continue. I bet you could start a chain reaction that would get Pheard sent to the "time out" corner again with nothing to eat but wasabi-and-gasoline encrusted beer nuts.

My friend snorted wasabi. He later thought that it was a bad idea.

You mean that thought didn't hit him right after he did it?

I like the Wasabi peas. What they call wasabi is mostly horseradish these days, the real stuff is still available, but relatively rare, don't think I've ever actually had it.

I understand they don't always use wasabi in Japan, either, nowadays. It's pretty expensive. The real wasabi horseradish isn't even green. Or Celeste.

+1 I like a handful (of wasabi peas) with an ice-cold beer. Probably more than I enjoy popcorn or chips with beer.

Sorta like hotwings...only without the grease. Interesting. I'm going to have to go to the local Asian Food Mart and get some wasabi pea snackage and try this theory.

The question becomes though, what kind of beer goes best with wasabi peas? I'm leaning more towards less botique stuff, and just a decent midrange domestic as I wouldn't want to kill the tastebuds on the wasabi and subsequently put out the fire with an 8.00 lambic...

Yeah, and you wouldn't want a nice lambic overpowering that great wasabi/nutty flavor.

May I recommend Yeungling? And nothing "lite," please.

Don't forget the JackBlack chaser, just to cleanse the palate following the Yeungling.
