Wasabi Peas

Recently I have been addicted to Wasabi peas. Wasabi peas are green peas coated with wasabi paste. Wasabi has a more pungent flavor than that of radish. When I tried them the first time, I didn't like it as the spicy flavor irritated my nose and throat. The flavor is like that of a pungent radishy flavor which rises into the nose and the throat. But soon I craved for more of the spicy flavor and now I love them now. It makes such a healthy snack combined with the lot of proteins offered by the peas. Trader's Joe's sells wasabi peas without any artificial color or preservatives. Try it out...You will love it.
