The folks behind The Kettle Gourmet (think chicken rice flavoured popcorn) is now spreading their wings a little into nutty territory! Present The Nutkins where they are bringing the same concept of localized flavours to peanuts. Available from their online shop at $5 a pack, and where $30 gets you free delivery, there are currently two flavours to choose from and with more flavours I hear are along the way.
Choose from either the Black Pepper Crab flavoured peanuts or the Baked Prawn flavoured peanuts, or just go for both. My favourite has to be the Black Pepper Crab for that piquant spice, mild heat, and the seductive knowledge of knowing that you get to enjoy one of Singapore’s best known culinary seafood secrets in a bite. However, I do wish that the crab flavours could be stronger. The Baked Prawn is unfortunately a little lacklustre and could do with stronger prawny flavours. If I do have a prawn snack craving, i would probably go for keropok or just good ol’ Calbee prawn sticks.
The nuts are definitely priced at a premium, and if you are looking to entertain guests with something to talk about at any festive season, maybe the black pepper crab flavoured peanuts would just be right for you.
Thank you the Nutkins for the media drop.
