Lovely company to deal with (Sensible Foods); didn't enjoy the product itself
on December 4, 2014
The bad news:
We'd had Crunch-A-Mame (another brand of edamame snacks) and loved it, so we tried this brand. The difference between the first (made with oil) and this one (dry-roasted) was enormous and not one that we were happy with. This brand's version was too bitter for all of us. "Tastes like burnt peanuts", "ew", and "don't buy this again" were comments. We weren't sure if this was a matter of us not being used to the plain taste but none of us wanted more.
The good news:
When I called the (very small) company to express my concerns, the woman I spoke with couldn't have been more delightful or gracious. She was intelligent, well informed, polite, friendly, informative, apologetic about our dislike, and followed up on our conversation via e-mail (and phone, I seem to remember - it was a while ago). She sent us sample packets from another batch to try in case the particular batch we bought had been off. Unfortunately, the new batch was a touch better but we still didn't like the product at all, and I felt really bad about that.
I would be happy to do business with this company again; wish this particular product was more to our taste.
