Now they’re not overly, burning-tongue spicy. The Sriracha here gives that heat essence in the aftertaste, and it’s really sneaky too! You’ll never know what hit you until the 5th nut or so. And when you combine that with the cinnamon sugar goodness, it’s such a fun blend of sweet and spiciness in every crunch!
