Delicious, perfectly packaged, great customer service, no wheat: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
A friend sent me a recipe with gochujang in it that she couldn't stop gushing about--I had to try it! None of the places I can get curbside groceries had gochujang, so I decided to try amazon. I settled on this brand because of the reviews and, unlike the rest, it lacks gluten, a bonus for my wheat-sensitive self. Plus, their ingredients were a bit nicer, to me, than many of the other options, and the glass bottle is also a preference of mine.
When I received the bottles, they were wrapped up more safely than a mother's first child. It looked like they were lovingly packaged by hand. I had been worried about them being glass, but I couldn't imagine what normal mishap could have damaged them, only a decidedly abnormal mishap would have had a chance. Another happy discovery--there was a handy japchae recipe tucked inside. So nice!
When I had a question, they responded super quickly! AND 30% of their profits go to charities? Yes, please, thank you!
I'm not Korean; I've only had gochujang in restaurants. So I don't have a lifetime of experience to draw from to judge the taste. That said, I love this stuff! I've put it on all sorts of food, from eggs to carnitas, and continue to enjoy discovering new ways to include it in my culinary life. I'll be getting this brand again in the future!
