Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella is adding heat to a classic nut snack to create spicy pistachios for fans of fiery flavors. The spicy nut snack features dry-roasted pistachios that are enhanced with the extreme heat of the scorpion pepper, which comes in at about 1.2 million heat units on the Scoville scale.
These shell-free, naturally seasoned pistachio nuts speak to consumers who are looking to turn up the heat on a familiar product. For adventurous snackers who want to challenge their tolerance, these nuts promise to enhance a variety of snacks and dishes, or they can surely be appreciated on their own for their fiery taste. Unlike ordinary pistachio packaging that features bright green nuts, these ones hint at the heat inside with pistachios that are covered in spice.
