Love that Tesco stocks these so many people have access to them whole. (Tesco also has them ready out-of-the pod) The directions on how to eat them are very hard to miss, and quite important for those trying them for the first time. The pod is inedible, and it always has been! This should be made more apparent on the packaging, as there is only one sentence in small print saying to squeeze them out of the pod. I encourage every one star review to try them the proper way as they are my favourite appetizer and snack food. (Tip: boil as directed on the packaging then salt liberally with rock salt. Eat with your fingers and pop em out the pod!)
Fun to eat, nice nutty flavor. Don't eat the pods!
So glad I found these whole and not pre-shelled! Edamame have been a favourite of mine for years so I was well pleased to find them at Tesco. First, you must not eat the pods! My favorite way to eat Edamame is as a snack. Cook as directed, add a bit of butter and salt then after they've cooled a bit suck the beans from the pod using your mouth or pop the pods into a bowl using your fingers. Such a wonderful, nutty and delicious flavour. I eat them in place of popcorn or crisps while watching a movie or TV.
Great that Tesco stock these. In the pod is better
Great that Tesco stock these. In the pod is better than the beans on their own. Fun to remove the beans from the pod at the table. ALL- DO NOT EAT THE POD ie no one star reviews because the pod is inedible. That would be like giving a banana a one star review because the skin is inedible. Try them they make a great starter. Enjoy.

Inedible. Pods spiky and tough. Beans inside ok but despite long steaming the outer skin remained too tough to eat.
i wont be buying these again
DO NOT BOTHER! The most pointless product. you must cook them, let them cool then get the beans out of the pods, then reheat. every other supermarket has the beans on their own ready to go
How to use edamame in pods
To other reviewers who didn't know how to cook these - you are not supposed to eat the pods. Steam them in their pods for about 5 minutes, then toss them in soy sauce (still in pods). Serve them in a bowl for guests to help themselves to. When you eat them, pull them through your teeth/lips so that the beans fall into your mouth and the soy sauce flavours them. Throw the pods away. They are delicious - a delicacy.
Tough like leather
I bought these to add to ramen soups. I'm not sure how you're meant to eat these. I cooked them (boiled in water) and the pods were inedible, tough like leather. I certainly couldn't imagine removing the beans from the pod while frozen! Avoid.
My daughter’s favourite one. Shame Tesco doesn’t do anymore
Yuck, these were recommended in a recipe and they
Yuck, these were recommended in a recipe and they were awful so stringy, we were all picking them out of the meal
