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.

YUCK!!! the dough sticks to my teeth, never again.Caroline, West Brookfield, MA
We are super-fans of nuts.com, and we will keep buying. However, we were disappointed on the Japanese Peanuts. It is evident that it is a product that has been sitting in your bins for quite some time. Some individual peanuts are a bit rancid.Eduardo, Clearwater, MN
