The other week, I had to wait two hours at Costco to get my tire fixed so I had a lot of time to browse. I happened upon their cold cases and saw a bottle of kimchee I wanted! No, not Halm’s kimchee. But you know what? I haven’t had Halm’s in the longest time! The kimchee I saw was Chongga Kimchi and it was imported from Korea! I just HAD to try it.
Apparently it’s the #1 kimchi brand in the world. I don’t know how they got a title like that but I’ll go with it. So how is it? The first few bites, I thought it was just all right. Tasted a bit sour and I didn’t think it was great. Well as I started eating more…the flavor was definitely better. I like it a lot. It’s only about 7 dollars for this jar of kimchee so I think it’s a great deal. I hope Costco continues to carry it but you know that they continually switch up their goods. If you like kimchee, I highly suggest you give this a try! It’s only been about a week and I’m almost done with it. I’m a kimchee freak!
Wow Jenny, this kimchi sounds delish! I haven’t seen it at Costco but will keep looking for it. Have you shared the kimchi with your friends? What do they think about it? I’m looking forward to trying the “number one kimchi in the world.”
Foodluva: I hope you find it! I bought one on Tuesday and like I’m done. And I didn’t even eat it as often as I would. Great kimchee that includes a lot of daikon slices!!
