Jabsons Peanuts Review – Our Review Factors

When it comes to flavored peanuts, you would want each peanut to have a punch of flavor. The masala-coating, along with taste, crunch, and freshness were the key parameters that helped us form this review. In addition to these, the quality, aroma, packaging have been discussed as well.

1.Taste

Peanuts are an extremely loved bar-snack. They are also supremely addictive! Almost no one stops at just one. A fistful is the bare minimum, always. Which is why taste is a parameter of prime importance. How tasty were these peanuts? Are they delicious enough for us to go back to them? Or did we seal the bag after just one tasting?

2. Flavor

Flavors are typically classified as sweet, salty, tangy, spicy, etc. In our Jabsons peanuts review, we focused on whether the flavors were mild, too overpowering or just perfect. Was the flavour claimed on the pack evident in the bag of peanuts? Did the particular flavor hook us or was it passable?

3. Freshness and Quality

The freshness of a packaged bag of peanuts can be preserved for longer when stored correctly. However, this is possible only if it tastes fresh when opened. 

Sometimes when you open a bag of peanuts, all you can smell are stale, rancid, oily bits. These are indicative of badly packed or stored peanuts.

Was the surface of the peanuts smooth or were there a lot of shrivelled peanut pieces? The size of the peanut was also gauged. All of these factors are indicative of the quality of peanuts used. 

4. Aroma

We all know how the eyes eat first. But did you know, the actual tasting process begins from the nose? The aroma we get sends the first signal to the brain indicating the flavor. 

Did the bag of peanuts smell like the flavor indicated on the pack? Was there a stale or oily smell upon opening the bag of peanuts? 

5. Price

Are the Jabsons peanuts priced competitively? Does the quality of the peanuts match the pricing?

#1  Jabsons Peanut Spicy Masala – Mishry Top Pick (Spicy)

We ordered the 140-gram pack which was priced at Rs 60/-. The Jabsons Spicy Masala peanuts come in a non-resealable pink and red colored bag.

We liked how all peanuts were evenly coated with the masala mix. These peanuts had a bold dry mango taste and aroma.

Spicy is what we were looking for and spicy is what we got! The heat coming from the red chilli wasn’t overbearing and these medium-spicy peanuts would prove to be a great bar snack.

If you’re someone who likes spicy masala coated peanuts, these would be the ones for you. The above collective reasons are what made the Jabsons Peanut Spicy Masala our Top Pick.

#2 Jabsons Peanut Bharuchi – Mishry Top Pick (Classic)

Jabsons Bharuchi Peanuts come in a vacuum packed packet. A 150 gm pack is priced at Rs 60/-. Their shelf life is lower than the masala counterparts.

These Bharuchi peanuts are not peeled. These are hand-roasted and devoid of added oils, colors, or flavors. These are bigger sized peanuts which are wonderfully crunchy, making these Bahruchi peanuts our Top Pick in the Classic category.

The quantity of salt used in the Jabsons Bharuch peanuts is just right! These could very well be used to make chaats, in a sabudana khichdi, make peanut butter and an array of chutneys and dips.

#3 Jabsons Peanut Black Pepper – Also Recommended

Salt and pepper is a classic combination that pairs beautifully with most food items. These humble ingredients make for a great seasoning for peanuts as well. The black pepper flavor is appropriately delivered which is why we also recommend this Jabsons peanut variant.

Right as we opened the pack, a prominent peppery aroma covered the room. The Jabsons peanuts have a coarse pepper coating and look fairly oily. That being said, the oiliness wasn’t as intense on the palate.

#4 Jabsons Peanut Classic Salted

The Jabsons peanuts classic salted variant has a well-balanced salt seasoning. The seasoning is not little nor too bold. The Jabsons salted peanuts had a fresh aroma.

Sweet and salty is a combination you can never go wrong with. These salted peanuts paired with a piece of jaggery? Yum! What’s even better about this combination is the healthy fats and iron content in them. When consumed in moderation, these foods help regulate appetite over a period of time.

Please note- there are no magic foods or no one ingredient that significantly improves your health. An active lifestyle, an overall balanced diet, combined with meditation, proper sleep cycles- all help improve the health markers over time.

#5 Jabsons Peanut Hing Jeera

For our Jabsons peanuts review, we ordered the 40-gram pack of this variant which is priced at Rs 15/-.

The Jabsons peanuts in the hing-jeera variant are moderately spicy. Though the hing aroma was not really sensed, these peanuts had an excellent jeera flavor. We could see a generous amount of cumin seeds on these peanuts as well. The cumin aroma was also dominant.

The cumin flavor was dominant in the Hing-Jeera Peanuts.

Features

  • The 40-gram pack is priced at Rs 15/-.
  • The hing jeera peanuts come in a brown colored pack.

Pros

  • These peanuts have a mild spice kick, not too bold.
  • The jeera flavor is well delivered.
  • We could see a generous amount of cumin on these peanuts.
  • These peanuts had a dominant cumin aroma.

Cons

  • The hing aroma was missing.

#6 Jabsons Peanut Chilly Garlic

Chilli and garlic are a timeless flavor combination. Added to peanuts, they match perfectly. Sadly, this flavor doesn’t showcase itself as nicely as we expected.

The flavor combination left us a little confused. This was due to the fact that we couldn’t really make out one ingredient from the other. The flavors were not well defined. These are mildly spiced peanuts.

Jabsons Chilli Garlic Peanuts

Features

  • These peanuts have a shelf life of six months.
  • The 140-gram pack is priced at Rs 60/-
  • These peanuts have a subtle spice level.

Pros

  • The peanuts are crunchy.  

Cons

  • You cannot taste chilli and garlic flavors separately. The flavors are not well defined.

#7 Jabsons Wasabi Roasted Peanuts

We would recommend these wasabi-flavored peanuts to someone who has tasted and liked wasabi. These peanuts had an exceptionally sharp pungent taste.

Wasabi is typically used to add heat and pungency to food items and these peanuts did exactly that. However, the pungency was too much for us to pick a second peanut.

Wasabi flavored peanuts by Jabsons.

Features

  • The 140-gram pack of Jabsons wasabi-flavored peanuts is priced at Rs 70/-.
  • These peanuts have a shelf life of six months.

Cons

  • While these peanuts do deliver on the wasabi promise, the pungency was way too high for us to enjoy them.

#8  Jabsons Bar-B-Que Roasted Peanuts

A barbeque has a blend of four flavors that activates different parts of the tongue. Some sweet and salty notes with a little tanginess and spice.

These slightly sweet peanuts were completely missing the spice. The salt levels were comparatively on the lower side. We’d like these peanuts a lot more had they been crispier and were more flavor packed. 

jabsons peanuts review
The BBQ flavor is a bit muted in these peanuts.

Features

  • These peanuts have a shelf life of six months.
  • The 35-gram pack is priced at Rs 15/-

Cons

  • The peanuts were not crunchy.
  • The BBQ  flavors are not pronounced.

#9  Jabsons Tandoori Roasted Peanuts

Tandoori flavors on crunchy peanuts? Yes, please! To put it in one word the Jabsons peanuts in the tandoori flavor variant are tangy and crunchy.

The only thing that ruined the overall experience was the fact that we could taste a lot of raw-oil which is synonymous with a tandoori marinade.

Best Suited For
