Earlier this year, the Carolina Nut Company debuted its new Smokey Mozzarella Peanuts at the 2016 Sweets & Snacks Expo. While the brand already offers unique nut mixes such as Bacon Ranch Peanuts and Maui Onion Peanuts, its latest offering is the perfect option for cheese lovers.
The new Smokey Mozzarella Peanuts combine the brand's protein-packed, colossal peanuts with a smokey, cheese-flavored seasoning. After seasoning, the nuts are hand-roasted in Henderson, North Carolina, to bring out the delicious flavors. The result is a nutty snack that delivers the savory, wood-smoked taste of mozzarella cheese.
While the idea of combining cheese with peanuts may sound unusual, the new flavor combination demonstrates the growing demand for products that pair unlikely ingredients to create unique snacking experiences.
