Japanese Peanuts: A Surprising Origin
Ironically, Japanese-style peanuts originated in Mexico, not Japan. Also known as maní japonés or cacahuates japoneses in Spanish, this snack was invented in 1945 by a Japanese immigrant living in Mexico named Yoshigei Nakatani. To this day, Yoshigei’s addictive peanut creation continues to grow in popularity throughout Mexico and the United States.

I have always loved Japanese peanuts and have to stop myself from eating too many at once.Julie, Rosemead, CA
Crunchy, soy flavored, wonderful Japanese peanuts are highly addictive, delicious. I love them. The only thing that I would change would be some salt on the peanuts(perhaps boiled in shell, salted?)...but I give them a 10 and I want them on.automatic reorder.Tina, Salisbury, NC
These I didn’t enjoy as much. I ate the entire bag so they weren’t bad but weren’t exactly great. I’m sure most people would eat these with no problem but I won’t be ordering these again.Bryan, Kingsport, TN
I have had Japanese peanuts before and these were not at all what I expected. I didn't think the taste was all that great either.Chandra, Cortland, IL
