OK, so I decided that I would go out and buy Lee Kum Kee brand Soy Sauce to move beyond Kikkoman. It sounded good, based on the recommendation of other chowhounds, so when I got to that part of the store, I saw the usual cute bottle with the red label that I expected, but next to it was a larger bottle of LKK, this with a yellow label and designated "Premium". It was a better buy too, so home with me it went.
I opened it last night to make a dipping sauce for gyoza, and tried a spoonful of it first....oh, my goodness, that is one salty soy sauce! Now, I like salty foods, my system tends to crave salt, but this seemed a bit excessive!
Anyone else make this observation?
