Reviews and Receipts: Should You Give This Canned Egusi Soup a Try?
Canned Egusi soup? We had to try it. Welcome to Reviews and Receipts, featuring our host Ike Slimster.
Egusi is life, that's simply a fact. Egusi in a can? Well, we're not quite as sure.
Nigerian-owned food producer, Egunsi Foods is the brave brand, aiming to make stews like egusi (melon seed soup), obe ata (tomato stew) and gbegiri (black-eyed pea soup) accessible, by packaging them in plastic containers and selling them online or at your local Whole Foods. Bet you never thought you'd buy classic Nigerian dishes at the same spot where you get your gluten-free kale or whatever.
Yeah, we were curious about it too, so we had "Reviews and Receipts" host, Ike Slimster, try out some of their products.
Here's the verdict:
