Kikkoman Plum Sauce

    • by lisastar

      My family loves chicken strips, and I wanted a good dipping sauce to accent the chicken strips for dinner. I wanted to find something special and new to make dinnertime a little more fun. And Kikkoman makes an attractive looking plum sauce, well on the grocery shelf anyway. So I bought a bottle of it at the local grocery store.

      And later while I was preparing the evenings dinner, I twisted open the lid to the jar to really inspect this wonderful looking product.

      The sauce had a very nice rich brownish color and was nice and thick, just how a good dipping sauce should be. And then I noticed a strange smell that seemed to be emanating from the jar, so I took a deep sniff. Wow, how exactly did Kikkoman manage to make a plum sauce that smells like tee tree oil. Yes, tee tree and citrus fruit. I have no idea, but the smell alone kind of totally confused me at that time. So I checked the ingredients list on the side of the bottle. Who would ...

      • Kikkoman Plum Sauce
      have known the combination of plum puree, vinegar, ginger and fermented wheat protein would make a strong tee tree smell like this.

      I braved the inevitable and dipped a clean teaspoon into the jar and tasted. And to my total surprise, this sauce is completely bland with only a really mild hint of plum taste, completely opposite of the strong smell

      that rose from the contents in the jar. I was not going to feed my family this product so I ended up throwing the whole jar in the garbage and served the usual honey and barbeque sauce with dinner. I would not recommend this product to anyone unless you are a tee tree fanatic and have a stomach of steel.
