Natto made me tear up the first time I tried it... about 3 months later I tried it again; I think it got worse. It doesn't taste too bad but the smell always gets to me.

If there were ever three girls wwho could make me eat natto, it would be these three.

TheMarion - "I am an old man... I like the taste... old men have no sense of smell"

Then how can you like the taste of natto or anything else? Heck, I'll be an old man in a few more years and I can still smell natto and everything else!

I am an old man who eats Natto every day and it keeps my blood thin and I have no clots. Besides, I like the taste and old men have no sense of smell.

Mr Zaichik was buying natto in an Asian grocery store here in Auckland the other day. Looking rather taken aback, the cashier said to him, "Do you know what that is?" Mr Zaichik answered in the affirmative. The cashier said, "I guess your wife must be Japanese." Mr Zaichik replied, "No, she isn't - we just lived in Japan and got to like natto a lot."

After all, it smells no worse than some cheeses. Natto omelette is really good!

One of the foods that actively takes up radioactive Iodine from your body, I heard at the time of the Chernobyl disaster.

Either way, I have got to like it over the years, expecially the Tamba black bean variety, and actually watch my own hand go out, pick up three or so, and place them into my shopping basket. All kinds of ways of eating the stuff too!

Natto is one of the most disgusting "foods" I have ever encountered. It looks bad, smells bad, and tastes disgusting. These three "natto tarts" do nothing for me, and I cant see them doing much for natto either - other than to put more people off it. Im told its good for you, and now these girls are saying its good for our intestines. No thanks - I want to keep my intestines free of amaeba.

Natto may be good for health, but it clearly has a negative impact on the fashion sense.

"Natto is good for your intestines"- now there's a catchy lyric...

They want that people buy like mad natto as two years ago. Like the banana syndrom! I have lots of fun in Japan!

For once I am glad the pictures on JT are so microscopic. I'm getting a headache even from that small one, a larger version surely would induce seizures.
