AUSTIN, Minn.— Planters, a Hormel Foods Corp. brand, launched Sweet & Spicy Dry Roasted Peanuts, available now at convenience stores across the nation.

“At first, your taste buds are hit with sweet flavors of honey and sugar, and then the spice kicks in making you want to start the experience all over again,” said Robbie Koons, brand manager at Planters, based in Austin, Minn.

The snack is dry roasted with honey and dried red chili peppers, then seasoned with salt. All Planters peanuts contain more than 30 essential vitamins and minerals and have seven grams of protein per serving.

They are currently available in a 1.75-ounce on-the-go package in c-stores and 16-ounce bottles at grocery stores nationwide.

HormelFoodsCorp., based in Austin, Minn., owns several well-known food brands, including Skippy, SPAM, Hormel Natural Choice, Justin's, Black Label and more.
