When I was a kid I didn’t eat mayonnaise. I thought it was disgusting, but I have no idea why as I’d never tried it. When I was in college a girlfriend’s mom made me some sandwiches for my drive home from MA to NJ and one of them was tuna with mayo. “It’s good, trust me” she said and she was right.
Even though I enjoy tuna and mayo sandwiches now, usually with lots of black pepper, and occasionally add chopped celery or other vegetables it is still a fairly boring and bland sandwich. Recently I went to Mitsuwa in Edgewater, NJ and found a product that makes my tuna sandwich much, much tastier.
I tend to add a lot, because I like it spicy. The first time I used it I actually added too much. I wasn’t expecting it to be as hot as it was, being a spread, but it was and it was delicious. I bought 2 kinds and I’m looking forward to trying the other one as well, but I’ll likely wait until I’ve used this up first. The only downside for some people is that it is in a bottle that is little more than a bag, which makes it extra squishy. I have no problems with it, but it does upset some people to touch it. A friend of mine thinks it feels like touching eyeballs and avoids this kind of container whenever she can.
