I was at the grocery store and saw some Wasabi Mayonnaise, from Dynasty. I immediately imagined the rich taste of mayonnaisse kicked up with the heady pungency of wasabi. Thus inspired, I dropped the $3.69 on it with high expectations.
It’s the worst stuff I’ve put in my mouth in months! It tastes like an emulsion of sewing machine oil and sulfer. Any hint of wasabi essence is weak, quickly destroyed by the lingering impression of having licked a patch of mildew. The rather unattractive gray-green color should have been the tip off, but I was blinded by enthusiasm.
This is the first food product I’ve bought in a long time that I’ve tasted once and just thrown out. Even the Kvass stuck around longer!
