The values are fairly similar, thumbs up for this.
Aroma + Appearance
The makhane have an off-white appearance as they naturally do. There is a thin, light yellow-colored coating of peanut butter. There were no rancid or displeasing aromas.
Taste + Texture
The natural texture of foxnuts is retained. They feel light and have a mild crunch.
