Otokomae Johnny Tofu from Japan
I bought this really just for the amusing text that I saw on the label: "Johnny the Tofu Maker, Blowin' in the Wind." Afterwards I realized that I had bought other varieties from this Otokomae ("handsome man") brand before, and that "Johnny" was just another type. Apparently the quirky marketing and naming is intentional - these guys even have a theme song and merchandising.
Anyway, the previous ones I had from Otokomae were rich and creamy, and this one was too: full of fresh soybean taste - with a hint of sweetness along with it. And just as with the others, it was so tender and creamy that one should just eat it with a spoon straight out of the pack. It was a bit too rich, in fact: just one of these was enough before I got a bit inundated by it.
