from SUPERMARKETGURU:

“If you like spice you’ll love these Thai Peanuts imported from Thailand. The peanuts are roasted perfectly and the spice blend of Thai red onion, salt, sugar, lemongrass, makrut lime leaf and Thai chili is exceptional — and in pieces large enough to see. One ounce is 150 calories, 13 grams of fat, 7 grams of protein and just one gram of sugars. Be sure to have some water, or a margarita near by to put out the fire on your tongue. And that’s a good heat!”

The issue of sustainability is perhaps controversial since the product is imported from Thailand. However, sea freight is a very efficient process. Bringing peanuts from Virginia and processing them in California (where our company is based) most likely would have a higher energy cost for truck freight. Other issues such as adding economic value to small villages in Thailand where there is still poverty is not being considered in our sustainability ranking by supermarketguru.
