Peanuts Crack Snack Lovers’ Code Thursday, July 10th, 2014


Nutcrackers throughout America are working overtime as an array of flavorful nut varieties are making their way to shelves like never before. Even though the peanut has been around for centuries, leading manufacturers are revamping this popular nut with flavor.

Market research company Mintel reports that sales of nuts and trail mixes grew by 53% from 2008 to 2013, reaching $6.3 billion in sales. The report published on Adage.com states that nut popularity is driven by “nutritional benefits” including high fiber and protein.

New flavors like honey dijon, blueberry and strawberry aim to make the peanut more appealing to consumers. Bolder blended flavors such as barbecue and several spice varieties also are piquing buyer interest.

Planters is one of the leading peanut manufacturers in the United States, and its Dry Roasted Honey BBQ Cocktail Peanuts satisfy the urge for both sweet and salty tastes. These peanuts contain honey, maple syrup, dried molasses and sea salt. The company’s Nut-trition mix stays on trend with peanuts and honey mixed in its Sustaining Energy Blueberry Nut variety.

For those who love a little spice in their lives, Fire Dancer has released Honey Roasted Jalapeno Peanuts. Taste sweet and heat with a flavor combination that includes honey and no preservatives. They are gluten-free.
