It’s probably no coincidence that this awesome snack is named after the famed martial artist from Foshan because Huang Fei Hong’s irresistable combinantion of crunchy, jumbo peanuts (from Shandong province mind you), chillis and peppercorns pack the right amount of kick that will keep you begging for more. It’s a relatively simple snack that’s a farcry from the stuff we usually gobble here in the States, but maybe that’s what makes it so great to eat. How can peanuts simply taste so good?
The peanuts themselves are full of crunch and aren’t those teeny tiny Planters nuts we usually find ourselves downing during beer night. However, the kick comes straight from our infamous little friends from Sichuan: huajiao peppercorns. The signature ‘numbing’ spice that trickles across your tongue may initially have you reaching out for the nearest glass of water, but upon taking the heat in stride, you’ll find yourself reaching out for more.
Internet foodie blogs have already buzzed about this hot treat, and for good reason too. It’s a simple snack that features a neat variation to the usual fare we consume, but with neat packaging and ample supplies in many an asian grocery store equals a damn fine product. There’s even a knock off version of this product named after Huang Fei Hong’s love interest in Tsui Hark’s classic “Once Upon a Time in China” film series too. A favorite of this blogger’s snack repetoire, Huang Fei Hong Spicy Peanuts is da SHIT, so get ’em today!
