This can was jam packed with fried bean curd pouches. The sauce was to sweet for my taste until I learned that all you have to do is rinse them or soak them in water to control the sweetness. I agree with Michelle here. This is the best price you'll find online anywhere. Even my kids ate them in their bento.

I was thrilled when I saw AFG start carrying this, as I had priced it on many other sites and the costs were insane. As much as eight dollars for a can on some sites! I've heard many people say that working with these can be quite difficult, but this brand is very easy to use. I have no problems getting them out of the can or working with them when I stuff them with whatever filling have chosen. They are quite sturdy for such a delicate little pouch and the sauce they are canned with is perfect. The can is tightly packed with a lot of them too, it is not mostly liquid like you often find with canned products. I have enjoyed making sushi with these, steaming them with eggs in the pouch, putting them in udon and I'll even admit to having nibbled a few just straight out of the can. I had some stuffed with rice in a bento I had packed for a trip my mother and I took (she is very American in her tastes but will hesitantly try new things that I put together) she couldn't believe it when I told her that soft sweet little wrapper around the rice was made of tofu!!! (I don't think she's ever eaten tofu, only seen in it packages. She doesn't believe it's edible.) She's even made a request for them the next time we go on a picnic.
Thank you AFG for carrying these at the lowest price found on the internet!
