Farmer Brand Roasted Peanuts

Farmer Brand Roasted Peanuts

These are awesome. A local colleague introduced me to these locally grown peanuts, which are much smaller than Planter's (look at how small they are compared to the pen...especially the opened one in the bottom right), but are also much, much tastier, and frighteningly addictive. Apparently they are available at shops in Chinatown (say, off Temple Street), or even at Caltex gas stations. I wish that SQ would start serving these, although the shells would probably create too much of a mess for the flight crew to clean up.

Dude, you have to try their garlic variety. But beware "garlic breath", you have been warned!

Yes!!! The garlic variety rocks!

And you can get these at nearly all the supermarkets across the island!

Farmer Brand has got about the best peanuts compared to the rest, in my humble opinion. The Shandong ones are nice too, though not as tasty as the garlic ones.

I tried the garlic version the other day, but unfortunately, I didn't really like it. The garlic flavor was weaker than I was expecting, but more importantly, it seemed like a different kind of peanut altogether: the shell was thicker and the nuts themselves inside were big too.

It's precisely the super-small and tasty (and easy to open) peanuts of the original variety that I like so much. Moving to a bigger peanut thus loses its distinction and isn't much better than Planters in my opinion, garlic-flavored or otherwise.

What are the Shandong ones like though?

"Nan Ru" is fermented beancurd made with red yeast rice that makes the fermented beancurd reddish in color.
