A Super Satisfying Snack That's Sure to Please!
Trader Joe’s Wasabi Peas are a unique blend of peas and wasabi – that potentially-life-saving Asian-style horseradish. We start with shelled green peas, fry them quickly and add a special wasabi coating to get the crunchy texture that really satisfies those snacking urges. The natural sweetness of the peas is a good complement to the pungent spiciness of the wasabi. But not to worry – they’re not sound-the-alarm-my-mouth-is-burning spicy. They are, however, one of those rare snack foods made from green vegetables, which means you can feel good about every crunch (though we do still recommend eating plenty of that other kind of vegetable – fresh). You can also feel good about our price of $2.29 for each nine ounce bag. Every day. Only at your neighborhood Trader Joe’s.
