A very kind student bought in a couple of these jars for myself and my workmate. She told us that it was extremely popular and that it had sold out across Japan. Apparently people had been searching for the last available jars and offering them on Yahoo Auctions for a small ransom!!
Anyway, today when I was watching TV, it was one of a number of items referred to during a program for it's astounding meteoric rise to stardom!!! Of course it is delicious and can supplement a number of dishes from fried rice and noodles to gyoza, but it gained most of it's notoriety of the back of a celebrity endorsement!!!
Wow, the power of the media is never to be underestimated!!!
Thank you very much!!!
