Chocolate Natto

chocolate natto

Mito’s meibutsu (famous local product) is natto, a goo made from rotten soy beans. It is, as they say, an acquired taste. I once ate it every day for three weeks, testing out my theory that a person can get used to any food. I gave up  because I just couldn’t get it down without gagging. This souvenir stand is trying to make it more palatable by adding chocolate to it.

By the way, I’m moving tomorrow, so there probably won’t be any posts until next weekend.

    WOW! You held out for 3 weeks? I only lasted 3 days! haha My wife eats natto every morning and, being that I had a similar theory that if you eat something enough you’ll learn to enjoy it, I began to eat it in the mornings with her. I really wish I could eat the stuff, but I just can’t do it. Gratz to you for trying harder than I did! haha

    Oh, and awesome blog by the by. ::thumbs up::
