Honestly, the name alone would have gotten me to buy these peanuts I came across at the Monoprix near my Opéra movie theaters.
That I also happen to love peanuts and am fond of both barbecue and Indian food meant that I was definitely going to buy them.
That these “New York” peanuts were totally unfamiliar to me is not surprising since there’s nothing New York or even American about them.
That they tasted not very much at all like barbecue or Indian food should not have come as a shock. That they were well roasted and not at all greasy was.
Verdict: would eat again though I wouldn’t seek them out.
