I take a couple of jars over with me when I go over. It's an aquired taste and a lot of us Brits were brought up with it.
Sounds better than Nattō.
Nattō (なっとう) is a traditional Japanese food made from soybeans fermented with Bacillus subtilis. It is popular especially as a breakfast food. As a rich source of protein, nattō and the soybean paste miso formed a vital source of nutrition in feudal Japan. For some, nattō can be an acquired taste due to its powerful smell, strong flavor, and sticky consistency.
I've always felt that Nattō looked like something from out of your nose and smelled like something from out of your old shoes.

Natto is probably the most disgusting food it's ever been my misfortune to eat. A lot of Japanese eat it for breakfast every day. The smell of it makes me feel physically sick!
But you give some blue cheese to a Japanese person and you'll get the same response.
