The Inconspicuous French Burnt PeanutsFriday, September 17th, 2010 by Becca Droz
Denture Danger: 8
Judging by the name of this candy combined with the aesthetics, I would say that the French have an odd peanut burning procedure. The peanuts in this candy seem to be more-so coated in a lumpy red sugary shell than burnt in any way, but the taste tells another story.
I think that these peanuts have not only been disguised as some sort of geological unit from Mars, but the peanut inside definitely tastes burnt. The French must have found a way inside of the alien eggs, burnt the peanuts, and then sealed them back up with some sort of sortilège (magic spell). The possibilities the universe has to offer never ceases to blow my mind!
These strange red ovals of extremely crunchy candy have the perfect sweet, to salty, to burntness ratio of tastes that make it one of the Willy Wonka of Candyfavorites.com’s favorite candies. Yes, you heard me correctly, Jon Prince, the man himself (who you might be surprised to hear does not eat a whole lot of candy) recommends the French Burnt Peanuts.
