What's Wrong with Peanuts in Laos?

Dear Moderator,

In the FAQ section for Laos, I saw this entry: "How do I avoid peanuts?"

I don't quite get it - what's wrong with peanuts in Laos, that we should avoid them there?

Some people have pretty serious peanut allergies -- hence the FAQ.

That sid, they go great with a few ice cold bottles of BeerLao ;-)

The main problem with the peanuts in Lao is that most of them ,which accompany a Beer Lao , are covered in MSG ,which as a side affect make you drink more Beer Lao ,problems ,problems .
