Product Review: Sriracha Peas In, Wasabi Peas Sidelined

You've heard of wasabi peas, and you've most certainly seen the ubiquitous mod-green, dull-looking snack that packs a punch. Sold as a snack and popular as an Asian snack, the green wasabi pea is good, but finally has competition.

Sriracha peas are my new favorite snack. More addictive and with a less biting taste, these orange-dusted gems are the crunchy answer to those who love some flavorful heat. And honestly, they're not all that strong, so yes, even you folks with weak taste buds (or shall I call you guys "supertasters"?) can enjoy these. Wasabi peas, move over. Spicy Sriracha peas are the hot new snack in town.


In case you live in a closed-off part of this world and haven't heard of it, Sriracha is a delightfully spicy red chili sauce that's used as a popular food condiment all over Asia and the world. It was actually invented in California by a Chinese-Vietnamese immigrant, and all I can say is that I'm addicted. I use it in everything from sauces and grilled cheese to dressings and pasta dishes, and everyone who knows Sriracha knows how addicting it can be. An interesting article on the sauce's origins can be found here.

As for these peas--sold in small cans at Wegmans, Hannaford, and Asian markets--is that I don't know why they weren't invented earlier. Make sure you get a jar to taste, and you tell me it isn't absolutely delightful. Up for the challenge?
