REVIEW: Planters's Five Alarm Chili Dry Roasted Peanuts

I ate a six-ounce (170g) bag of Planters's new Five Alarm Chili Dry Roasted Peanuts this evening. Purchased for about $2.25, the peanuts were quite tasty.

The peanuts were coated with a medium-spicy powder that contained a lot of chili and had a bit of a smokey flavor.
