Gourmet's Comments

   

Gagome kombu is quite trendy recently because it is a good healthy ingredient, so it is the perfect gift for anyone who is health-conscious. In my company we eat out quite often and there are more than a few people who like to be careful about what they eat, so this is something I would love to give to them.

It is a soy sauce that gives the impression that it makes ingredients even more delicious, and that it has a refined taste. Also, Gagome kombu is well-known as a health food so it is the ideal gift for older people as well as health-oriented people. I think it communicates kindness and a feeling of concern for one’s good health which the person receiving this will feel too. (Transportation Industry - Secretary - 11 years, 2 months)

Soy sauce is really easy to use and there are very few people who dislike it, so in my opinion it is certainly a good gift. The bottle is small and easy to use, and the overall size is also compact so you can give it to someone without worrying that it will be too big or heavy. The taste is quite light, and very delicious. (Manufacturing Industry - Secretary - 5 years)
