Eden Foods Daikon Radish Pickled with Rice Bran -- 3.5 fl oz
Love Pickled Daikon, Hated this one from Eden
I lived in Japan for over 10 years, ate Macrobiotic for a years and generally love Eden Foods as a good (albeit expensive) brand. When I saw that Vitacost had the pickled radish, I ordered it right away.
It is so salty and briny that we cold barely swallow it. I took it to the sink and washed it (something I'd never do with pickled Daikon) and still it was far too salty. And I love salt. I definitely eat too much of it, but I love it. This is just off-the-charts awful and we had to throw it out. I even asked Vitacost for a refund.
Eden is a good brand for the most part and I hope they'll sort this out. I love all kinds of salty Japanese food (even the sour/salty umeboshi plum) but this was just awful.
Sorry to leave such a harsh review for this one food when most of their stuff is worth the extra money, but hopefully they'll revisit this process and see what they can do.
