Interesting and Savory

These bonito flakes have a delicate, tissue paper-thin texture when dry. When incoroporated with liquid, they impart a nice, savory flavor to broth, soup, or dashi. (Depending on your dish, you may want to strain the liquid to remove the hydrated bonito; this will leave the smoky taste without the flakes.) They also work well sprinkled on top of meals for extra flavor and interesting texture.
Mmm. Tasty Ponzu!

A great combination of flavors. The citrus juices and soy sauce flavors blend so well together. (Imagine a combination of fresh lemon & soy sauce whisked together.) This is savory and salty, but not overly salty. It makes a good alternative or substitute to traditional, basic soy sauce.

I find these little guys to be pretty tasty; they do not have the traditional strong bitter-brassica flavor of fresh raw kale, which is a definite plus! They are rich, savory, and just the right amount of salt. These Krunchies have a warming, spicy kick from the cayenne, which is not overpowering. Those who are very sensitive to heat and have tummy problems, Lydia's Herbs de Provence Kale Krunchies provide all the yumminess without the spice. It should be noted that, like any food, these should be chewed well - pointed edges of kale can get stuck in the back of your throat. These impart flavor, crunch, and nutrition boosts to a chilled bisque, gazpacho, or salad.
Ok: A Bit Bland

This is definitely a very mild-flavored cinnamon. Oddly enough, it reminds me of ground peppercorns without the spicy kick. I prefer the cassia cinnamon for its robust, aromatic, spicy-sweet goodness. For me and my cinnamon-lovin' tastbuds, this product's flavor falls flat for me.

This is a great addition to the flavoring and condiment collection in the kitchen. It has a lovely salty-sour flavor. It give a nice piquant kick to your vittles.
Awesome - Highly Recommended!

Has a mild, clean smell and has natural botanical that combat stinky pits. Does not have propylene glycol, which can cause rashes or allergic reactions. (I tried Tom's deodorant, which has this ingredient - broke out in a rash.) I highly recommend this product. I use it everyday and it seems like it has lasted forever... several months... I guess a little goes a long way. Like practically any other deodorant natural or otherwise, you will stink if you sweat profusely while outdoors. But I workout (40 minutes) and walk outside (2 hr) and I'm a-okay throughout the day!
Mellow, Sweet, and Crunchy

These mellow-flavored are tasty treats that have the right amount of mild sweetness from banana and bits of tartness from raspberry. I like breaking these bars into little pieces and using them to top smoothies. They add a great crunch factor and nice flavor. These combine well with nuts or nut butter too. Mmm.
Ugh... Make Your Own Mix.

Great nutritional profile - but the taste and texture and price are big bummers. The chalky taste and texture of brown rice protein are noticable as is the grittiness of the hemp protein. I just mix up my own whole-food mix: green powder, pea protein (much better texture and flavor than rice), and some hemp protein (Nutiva's hemp protein is not gritty - their protein and hempshakes are very smooth), and some nutritional yeast (for B vitamins, minerals, and a nice flavor). And a pinch of salt and maybe stevia to round out the flavors. Making your own mix is tastier and much less expensive.

Similar to umeboshi paste, this is a great addition to the flavoring and condiment collection in the kitchen. It has a lovely salty-sour flavor. It give a nice piquant kick to your vittles. This is pretty much a powdered version of umeboshi - great for sprinkling!

This is not spicy as expected, but very tasty. I'd give it five stars for quality, health, and taste but... I wish these were larger or had more strips per individual pack... more yumminess with less packaging. These are appropriately sized for garnishes, but not snacks or meals.
