Pickled Lettuce in Soy Sauce (Day In supermarket) [By @SpectreUK]

I’m always on the lookout for pickled snacks to have with my Sunday lunchtime sandwich and crisps. I recently picked up a small jar of Pickled Cucumber in Soy Sauce at the Day In Chinese supermarket in the Arcadian, in Birmingham city centre. On my latest jaunt to that favoured FoodstuffFinds haunt I found an equally small sized jar of Pickled Lettuce in Soy Sauce. AGV Products Corporation in Taiwan produced both the Pickled Cucumber and Pickled Lettuce in Soy Sauce. I absolutely loved the Pickled Cucumber in Soy Sauce and was sure that this Pickled Lettuce in Soy Sauce would be super tasty. The only question in my mind was which would I prefer? The Pickled Lettuce in Soy Sauce’s ingredients included; lettuce, soy sauce, mushroom extract, and citric acid, and the allergy advice on the cute little pot stated that it contained soy bean and wheat. On opening the jar I found that the Pickled Lettuce was round and roughly penny sized, like chopped up carrot, but green in colour. The Pickled Lettuce were soft to bite and very juicy with soy sauce. I was surprised to find that I liked them more than the harder Pickled Cucumber, mainly for their malleable and squidgy nature. I could have easily gorged on them all day, if the cute small pot had been a little larger and I hadn’t of had to share them with Cinabar and her mom. This Pickled Lettuce in Soy Sauce just tasted absolutely divine, and I shall definitely be hunting some more out soon.
