Planters Honey BBQ & Roasted Onion & Garlic Dry Roasted Peanuts

My text message with RobertA while back Planters sent me two new varieties of their dry roasted peanuts — Planters Honey BBQ and Planters Roasted Onion & Garlic — to try. Previously I’ve used nuts that they’ve given me to make Pumpkin Spice Almond Crusted Chicken Strips and Bacon & Almond Pumpkin Spice Pancakes.

I planned to try and turn these new dry roasted peanuts into something equally as DudeFoods worthy, but then I put them in my kitchen cabinet and honestly, just sort of forgot about them. A few weeks later my wife and I went on vacation and her brother Robert stayed at our house to watch our two dogs.

About a week after we arrived back home I received an email from Planters asking me if I’d had a chance to try the nuts yet and I replied that I still hadn’t, but that I’d give them a taste and then write something about them. The only problem was that I couldn’t find them anywhere. I literally took every single thing out of our kitchen cabinets to search for the peanuts that they sent me. I just about went nuts trying to find those nuts!

After looking everywhere I decided to send a text to Robert just to see if maybe he had eaten them, and as it turns out he did. So, while I can’t show you some crazy new creation using Planters Honey BBQ and Planters Roasted Onion & Garlic Dry Roasted Peanuts I can let you know that according to my brother-in-law they’re “pretty good.”

    Lol, I’m sure that’s not quite the review or promotion they were looking for, but it works anyway! Glad to hear they’re good. 🙂

    I tried both of them a while back. The Onion & Garlic were sort of bland, as the flavor was a little too subtle and didn’t transfer well. Despite this, they were still better than the Honey BBQ… those just tasted weird. Gross, according to my daughter. In fact, I still have the latter half of that jar still in the cabinet… I know, because I have to keep moving it out of the way to get to the other nuts!

    Moana Loa Macadamia nuts has had Maui Onion 7 Garlic nuts for years. They’re fab & were my always my favorite flavor.

    Hey, if they wanted to get a serious review, they shouldn’t send them unsolicited (assuming they were). Either way, you did the best you could to honor their wishes. Good on you.
