Give peas a chance

Hello one and all,

we're breaking a bit of new ground at the fizzness blog this morning. Turns out, and this may shock you so grab onto something nearby, that not only do we drink too much but we also eat too much as well. I know earth shattering. We've decided to share with you some of our favourite snacks as well as tasting some new varieties of common snacks. Some of them will be readily available in the UK (like this our first snack) and some of are imported goodness which we are either picking up from online importers or from local specialty shops.

The first snack is from UK supermarket Marks and Spencers and is.... WASABI PEAS

Don't let the pale packaging and friendly tree shapes deceive you, these peas pack a punch. Roasted to give a satisfying crunch the super sweet peas are coated in wasabi, which is part of the same family of plants as Horseradish and Mustard for those not in the botanical know, to give a powerful warm flavour. The contrast between the sweetness of the peas and the mustardy kick of the wasabi is brilliant. You will find yourself snacking on these until you lose all taste and feeling in your tongue, and even that doesn't stop me most of the time.

These are one of the most perfect snacks to have whilst enjoying a film or game. Great alternative to crisps and can be a brilliant alternative to nuts (although check the packaging as a lot of the time they will be in the same factory as nuts)

Highly recommended.

FACT : Did you know that Broccoli is also a member of the same family of plants are Horseradish, Wasabi and Mustard
