Peanut lovers rejoice! The grocery chain now stocks Bamba, Israel’s iconic puffed peanut snack.
Trader Joe’s said that it plans to sell Bamba, which it described as “crunchy, airy, peanutty and highly craveable — kind of like a cheese puff without the cheese.”
And there’s another benefit to Bamba; scientists recently have shown that it often prevents peanut allergies in children who eat the puffs when they are very young.
The snack, which is made in Israel by Osem, will retail for 99 cents per 3.5 ounce bag.
For the record, Bamba contains just four ingredients — corn grits, peanut paste, palm oil, and salt.
