Several months ago I had this craving for garlic peanuts. I remember trying the perfect coated garlic peanuts but I couldn’t find the supplier. So I started looking for it. First I bought this Indonesian garlic roasted peanuts from Unimart. It was a disappointment. It was coated with garlic but there was barely any garlic flavor.
My mom joined in the search and bought this. It’s greasy with slices of mild garlic. Thumbs down. My Auntie Lily heard of our peanut hunt and sent over Milky Way’s garlic peanuts. It was a little improvement over this but it wasn’t what I was looking for.
Next Auntie Lily sent this over. This Vietnamese creation does not contain garlic but instead is combination of wasabi, seaweed, sesame seed coated peanuts. It’s very good. It’s available in Unimart. This peanut tasting has cost me one cracked tooth and several dentist appointments trying to reconstruct the tooth. Now I need to have a crown put in.
Finally Flory found the perfect garlic peanuts in a small store in cubao. These peanuts are dry roasted with garlic bits stuck to it. There is slightly sweet, salty taste to it. Every bite guarantees a pungent garlic flavor. You are left with wonderful garlic breath. Mmmm.
I gave Auntie Lily a bag and she immediately texted that it’s so good she can’t stop eating. My mom and I have the same problem.
We repacked these peanuts for resale in my store.
