Do you remember when fear and panic swept the country because chicken wing supplies were shockingly low? (If you don't remember, I'll let Stephen Colbert explain.) Turns out the scare was unfounded (phew!), but I'd like to think out of that national faux-emergency, the creators of Lord Nut Levington Peanuts found some inspiration. What if they could combine two of the world's greatest football snacks into one? (This is probably not the case at all, but let's pretend.)
That's exactly what they did, and the results are a thing of beauty. Well, to the taste buds at least.
Eating healthy should still be delicious.

Lord Nut Levington's Wingman Hot Buffalo peanuts have the same tangy-spicy heat of the best buffalo wings—without all the saturated fat. One serving (1 ounce or about 1/4 cup) has 160 calories, 13g fat, 2g sat fat, and 210mg sodium. If you think you couldn't stop at 1/4 cup, you might be surprised when you taste how intense the flavor is. As with spicy buffalo wings themselves, I have to stop after a few because my mouth is en fuego and watering so intensely.
We tried the other flavors, including Rebel Mary (bloody mary), El Cheddarales (cheddar cheese and jalapeño), and Thai Dyed (Thai curry and lemongrass). Like the Hot Buffalo peanuts, all of these varieties were very intensely flavored. But seeing as the Super Bowl is this weekend, I figured you needed to know about the Hot Buffalo STAT so that you can order some for yourself and your game viewing party. One canister is $5.49, and shipping is free.
