Tua Tord or Fried de-shelled peanuts as we know them, not quite up to the standards flavour or texture wise when compared to what is on sale in the UK, but at 5 baht for a small bag in Thailand it is only to be expected, the Thai ones are far too crunchy and pretty much hard work to chew up, also the flavour is pretty awful when compared to the UK, if your not comparing then the Thai ones will make do and go fine with beer, but if you have imported ones on the table the Thai ones won't be touched, not even by the Thai people.
