A new taste I love.
I have never had kimchi before so I cannot compare it to any other version. That said I enjoyed this so much on my first try that I have immediately ordered another two jars. I added it to my soup toppings when I make my version of an asian style soup, I tried it mixed with yoghurt, I put it on burgers and eventually I started snaffling teaspoons of it straight out of the jar. Safe to say I am hooked. On top of it being delish I have noticed that since eating this regularly my blood sugar levels have consistently and significantly reduced. It is zingy and nicely spicy/hot.
Nothing like kimchi :(
This tastes nothing like kimchi, nor does it have the texture of kimchi. It really is horrible. I threw most of the contents in the bin. If this is your first taste of kimchi, please try another brand before vowing to never eat it again.
Gross. Nothing like kimchi. Just taste like carrot baby food
This is not kimchi, it's glorified sauerkraut. It doesn't taste bad, but it doesn't have the texture or flavour of authentic kimchi. If you want slightly spicy, carroty sauerkraut, maybe this is for you, but if you want actual kimchi, avoid.
Very good organic version
I know many purists hate this Kimchi. I have bought Kimchi at many Korean shops around London and this one isn't that terrible as they claim. I personally like it. At least it's organic and it doesn't contain weird things like some of the Korean counterparts e.g. flavour enhancers (monosodium glutamate), sweeteners and modified starch...
Expensive for the compost heap
Now I never throw food away but.....it was inedible and we threw it in the compost. It did not taste like kimchi, it was vinegary with a slushy, baby food consistency. I would avoid it if you can.
Tom Sauce without Italian herbs is still Tom sauce
Really tasty, of course it isn't Kimchi, do you see napa cabbage available on the shelves? Happy not to waste the air miles on cabbage. If I wanted authentic kimchi, I would make it myself or go to korea. I'm not expecting handcrafted wonderful goodness from a supermarket. Supermarkets specialise in mass production and imitation. It is fermented cabbage, so technically, yes it is kimchi. It is like saying this curry isn't curry because I've added in a non authentic spice. Get off your high horses people. They've done the best they can for mass production. Consumers demand sweet foods, so that is what they get. If you know a better organic kimchi vendor, I would love to know, but, until then, this will do. Organic cabbage itself is not easy to come across in the U.K unless home-grown. Best I have had is Kim-Chan's Kimchi, but, until it is available locally and when I desire it, I will have to do with my homemade kimchi and whatever this is. Tomato sauce without Italian herbs is still tomato sauce.
Avoid, go for the other jar.
Really awful. Soggy, mushy mess, just heavily shredded veg in a weak liquid. The other one in a jar is much better, altho smaller, but proper chunks of cabbage and beautiful spice. Avoid this one.
It is not kimchi
It is not kimchi
Not Kimchi! This is Sauerkraut with a hint of chilli. I make better myself and for a fraction of the price. Come on Tesco, sack your taste-testers.
