FAQ's

PRODUCT INFORMATION


How is Monster Crunch made?

  • It’s a very precise process. We carefully slice garlic, ginger, and onions before frying them at the perfect temperature for an exact amount of time (those are both secrets). We grind chili peppers, crush peanuts and seaweed, and blend it all together in very specific quantities (also a secret). This entire process is done by real humans.

Does Monster Crunch have to be refrigerated?

  • Monster Crunch can be stored at room temperature until opened. Once opened, it must be refrigerated. To be honest, we have yet to let an open jar be around long enough to expire.

Is Monster Crunch spicy?

  • Monster Crunch would compare to a mild salsa spice. We describe it as roasty, toasty, garlicky, and savory. Monster Crunch Extra Hot is, in fact, spicy. We compare the Extra Hot to a "Hot Salsa" spice-level. Or 8/10 if you want to get technical.
