Day 8: I Might Be Getting Somewhere

Today I had the "happy-natto-woman" natto for breakfast. I still didn't like it enough to eat the whole box, but this brand definitely has a better flavor than the others we've tried so far. It's hard to say if it's a more mild taste, or if I'm just getting used to it. I think it's definitely a more complex taste -- I'm starting to think that coffee and nuts are the closest flavors I can come up with to describe it. I totally disagree with the oft-cited comparison to strong cheeses -- I think this just comes up because pungent cheese is an acquired taste in much the same way that natto is. So I'm embracing the nuttiness of natto; hoping it will lead me to the natto promised land.
