WASABI means horseradish. MAME means peanut. These WASABI MAME, a traditional peanut snack with a sharp, spicy flavor, is made by coating peanuts sprinkled with a small amount of salt and nori (seaweed) with WASABI powder. Wasabi has a spicy flavor and aroma with a refreshing finish that is rather addictive.

These WASABI MAME are a traditional snack that have been manufactured for many years in Kyoto by a long-established specialty store that has been in business for 100 years. The peanuts are carefully sprinkled with WASABI powder by skilled confectioners. The exquisite seasoning, which cannot be achieved by mass production by machine, is backed by the skills of experienced confectioners and traditional methods.

The approximately 1.5cm (0.59 inch) sized peanuts are moderately chewy, with a sharp spiciness. These WASABI MAME have a signature clean spiciness that is gentle to start but gives a touch of quickly fading heat in your nose. This spiciness is pungent, but each bite reveals the peanut's natural sweetness, making you want to eat another one right away. If you try one bite, you will find that it is difficult to stop eating them. WASABI MAME pair well with any tea, but are especially good with Gyokuro and Sencha. The spicy flavor goes well with iced tea, too.

WASABI is said to have antioxidant properties, which, when combined with the nutrient-rich peanuts, may have a more positive effect on health. In Japan, peanuts have been said to ward off evil spirits, since ancient times, and are a food of good fortune. Even if you don't like peanuts, you should try WASABI MAME. The excellent flavor will delight your palate and enrich your green moment.
