While on a soul-searching trip to Australia that involved a lot of surfing and a lot of beer, Chris Ferguson found inspiration. "I had a ploughman’s lunch one day and thought 'more bars need to have diverse, interesting food.' When your food and your drink work well together everything tastes better." So Chris set out to make a better bar snack.
He focused on spicy flavors and started working on spiced roast nuts, including these Szechuan peanuts. With soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil and a smooth—but serious—spicy kick, these are seriously flavorful and seriously tasty. The heat is balanced with a sweet roasty flavor, and they go well with a beer as well as a cup of coffee. Try jazzing up a stirfry by tossing a few on top. Just be careful you don't eat the whole bag first—it's easy to do.
