“Spicy Nuts” are sweet and spicy nut confection that you will be addicted to once you eat. In hope of creating safe and secure products, all products are carefully made by hand without using any harmful additives. After caramelizing peanuts, banana chips and raisins with organic sugar, giant corns are added and seasoned with special spices based on “shichimi togarashi,” which is Japan’s oldest seasoning made from a mixture of seven ingredients. It can be enjoyed by itself, or can be crushed and sprinkled over various meals to enhance the flavors.
It all started when the company owner visited Lebanon where he was invited over for a home-cooked meal. Impressed with the sweet and spicy taste of the date confection he was offered there, Spicy Nuts were born through trial and error, in the hope of conveying the delicious flavors of the confection to more people. Because this product can be prepared in a single pan, it can be made anywhere in the world. With the SDGs in mind, the company aims to develop a business that can help people and make them happy, which includes teaching local people how to make their own spicy nuts in their respective regions so that it can become a local specialty that would help solving poverty issues.
