A good soy sauce
For another, sometimes I like to eat left over fried rice by itself. Once again, some soy sauce added to the reheated rice is a delicious and simple snack.
Kikkoman Soy Sauce, then, is a nice addition to one’s pantry.
Not the item pictured
How many complaints does it take?
So, 5 stars to Kikkoman for making a great soy sauce and 0 stars to Amazon for cheaping out on at-home customers with an unfair switcheroo. Between 5 and 0 stars, the average I give this order is 3.
P.S. When I sent the complaint to Amazon, I specifically stated that I wasn’t asking for a refund. They responded to my complaint – saying they were giving me a refund anyway and asking if it solved my problem. I told them, “No,” because I was still stuck with 3 restaurant-style containers. However, they did say they would investigate why this switcheroo is happening. Hope they fix it for future orders.
P.P.S. Up to this point, I was merely disappointed. But then, Amazon responded to my response. They suggested I “try one of their other sellers.” And they asked me again if this solved my problem. I answered yes … but only to get them off my back. And I took away 1 more star – making my review a 2-star review. Buying from Amazon should be like buying from any other store. Customers need to “trust” that the store “knows” what it is selling. If I visited a local Safeway store and bought this item – only to find the item switched in my shopping bag when I got home – I’d be disappointed. A refund doesn’t put the product I bought in my home. And the suggestion to try a different Safeway store would be a bit insulting. Who knows, maybe the other store would do the same switcheroo. Selling and buying should be a transaction, not a crap-shoot.
Wrong bottle type
The taste I grew up with in a handy bottle.
Following my instincts, I made my first batch of fried rice using Kikkoman’s, veggies and two eggs. The soy sauce was all I used other than a pinch of pepper and it was all that was needed. Kikkoman’s is flavorful without being overly salty. (That’s a lot coming from me being as I can’t stand overly salty foods or condiments.) It’s no where near as salty as those soy sauce condiment packets you get at the restaurants.
I actually found myself adding more after the dish was done to add more flavor.
I think the sauce is a tad pricey, so if you can find it cheaper elsewhere, great.
