If it is that amazing combination of sweet and salty, then Trader Joe's has a wide selection to satisfy that desire. Specifically, if it is the butter toffee sweet and salty you are hoping for then you have two solid options on shelves: pretzels and these peanuts.
Review and taste
Don't get me wrong. Both are good. But if I could only pick up one of those two items, it would be the pretzels and not the peanuts.
I mean the coating is nice and buttery. It's got a good crunch to it too.
But at the end of the day, it is that sweet and salty that I really crave.
While the pretzels hit that note. The peanuts just ended up being overall very sweet. Perhaps blame that on the unsalted butter they used in making these.
And don't kid yourself, in one serving there is 110 mg of sodium. But they just did not taste that way. Or in a sweet and salty balanced type of way.
In either case, both are solid snacks. However, did I find myself going back to this time and again? Not really.
I had a few here and there, but overall, I'll stick with the pretzels.
For $3.99 this is a good-sized 12-ounce container for the money. However, like so many other new items this Fall, it did not knock it out of the park for me.
Would I buy this again? No, I would not buy Trader Joe's Butter Toffee Coated Virginia Peanuts again.
