I’ve had edamame a few times when we’ve gone out to eat and I’ve always wished I could have it as a snack! When I saw that Costco had edamame in the freezer section I decided to pick up a box to enjoy at home. Today I’m reviewing the Nature’s Classic Edamame.

Cost

The box comes with eight 300 gram microwaveable bags of edamame. I paid $9.99 Canadian for the box.

Convenience

The edamame comes in super convenient microwaveable bags and is ready in just 2 1/2 – 3 ½ minutes in the microwave. I recommend sprinkling with a little sea salt prior to serving them. One thing I noticed is that the edamame cools very quickly so they’re most enjoyable if they’re consumed right after coming out of the microwave!

Nutrition

½ bag (150g) of soybeans with pods is 92 calories, three grams of fat, seven grams of carbohydrates, three grams of sodium, one gram of sugar and eight grams of protein! The ingredients list is only one ingredient, organic young soybean in pods. The edamame is organic and NON-GMO so that’s a positive!

Taste

These taste just as good as edamame I’ve had in a restaurant. Microwaved with a sprinkling of sea salt and they taste awesome. If you’ve never had edamame before they taste kind of like peas except less sweet and slightly earthy, they’re also a bit nutty and buttery tasting. I laughed because I put the bowl of edamame down on the table and my husband put the whole thing in his mouth and started chewing away without removing the pods.

The Costco Nature’s Touch Edamame is a great healthy snack, side or appetizer to have around the house!
