Kasugai Roasted Hot Green Peas


As my tolerance to wasabi increased, I suddenly discovered I was addicted to these, and had to fight to not eat an entire bag in one sitting.

Notice particularly the order of the ingredients:

Green peas, corn starch, canola oil, soybean oil, sugar, wheat flour, salt, monosodium glutamate, baking powder, soy lecithin, artificial flavor (wasabi), artificial color, FD & C yellow #5, blue #1 (brilliant blue FCF).

That's right, these are not wasabi peas. They are MSG peas. I just hope that stuff isn't as bad for you as they say, because I don't know if I can kick the habit.
