If you haven't tried these before, this product is described as 'an exotic, wholesome blend of cashews, almonds and peanuts with crispy multigrain noodles and green peas'. The 'noodles' are made from flours from both grain, potato and two types of legumes. I think that it is a good way to introduce different types of snacks apart from the usual potato or grain based snacks.
