Forresters BBQ Peanuts – A Tasty Vegan Snack Option

As a vegan, finding flavorful and satisfying snacks can sometimes be a challenge. But Forresters BBQ Flavoured Peanuts have become one of my go-to options for a protein-packed, plant-based treat.

The peanuts themselves are simply roasted in vegetable oil and salt, making them vegan-friendly right off the bat[2]. But it’s the bold BBQ seasoning that really makes these nuts stand out.

The seasoning is a delicious blend of spices like paprika, black pepper, and a hint of chili, along with vegetable powders that give it that signature BBQ tang[2]. There’s no dairy, meat, or other animal products used, keeping it 100% vegan.

I appreciate that the BBQ flavor is robust without being overpowering or too salty[1][2]. The peanuts still shine through, delivering that great roasted nutty taste and satisfying crunch.

My only minor complaint is that the latest batch I purchased seemed quite a bit saltier than previous bags[1]. But overall, these BBQ peanuts deliver fantastic flavor for a vegan-friendly snack.

Whether you need a protein boost, a crunchy desk snack, or something to munch on during a Netflix binge, Forresters BBQ Peanuts are an affordable and tasty option for plant-based snackers[2]. I’ll definitely be keeping these stocked in my pantry.
