Planters Nut Duos Snacks provides the ultimate snack experience – two nut types combined with two flavors to bring an experience of texture and flavor in one bag.

Planters brand, a leading snack nuts brand owned by Hormel Foods Corporation, introduces its latest crunch-time innovation: the new Planters Nut Duos snacks, now available from retailers nationwide.

Designed for the ultimate snacking experience, each variation features two complementary flavors on two types of nuts — the perfect snack for any occasion. Each Planters Nut Duos snack flavor combination is packed in a convenient, 5-ounce resealable bag. The three crave-worthy options include:

Planters Buffalo Cashews and Ranch Almonds: For fans who love the zesty taste of Buffalo-sauce flavor combined with the cool, tangy taste of ranch, this blend of roasted cashews and crunchy almonds is the ideal anytime snack.

Planters Cocoa Cashews and Espresso Hazelnuts: Chocolate and coffee are the perfect pairing for a rich, robust flavor sensation. The bold taste of these espresso-dusted hazelnuts and sweet cocoa cashews makes them the perfect treat for any snacking occasion.

Planters Parmesan Cheese Cashews and Peppercorn Pistachios: The creamy Parmesan cheese cashew pairs perfectly with the warm bite of peppercorn pistachio to deliver a unique snacking experience.
