At the risk of committing some heinous crime....

What's the difference between Nobby's nuts and common or garden erdnuss?

They're an Australian brand of dry roasted peanut, made in the UK under license by Walkers (but they keep that quiet). I guess they have extra sugar, salt and fat for the British market so apart from ex-pats I doubt they would sell too well here.

You are not right and the big difference is that they are dry roasted nuts. And they do sell well.
Thank you.
