Top Review by Muffin Goddess

After reading the two (very different) reviews on this, I decided to give it a try. I definitely have to go with Sarah_ Jayne on this one. I tend to gravitate towards really salty stuff anyhow (DH picks on me because I love super-salty and super-sweet), so I wasn't worried about the saltiness putting me off. I was pretty surprised by just how much of the soy sauce flavor the carrot soaks up. If you aren't a big fan of strong soy sauce flavor, don't bother with this. It defintely made me want sushi, too -- this would be a perfect complement to a nice rainbow maki roll or some caterpillar maki! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT4
