Adore your bento boxes; edamame is very tasty I've only had it in restaurants. Do you know if they sell it at regular supermarkets or do I have to find an Asian one?

I have only seen podded ones (which I assume are the ones you had in restaurants) in Asian supermarkets. Although you can find Bird's Eye soya beans in the frozen section of most supermarkets. They are quite nice mixed with frozen peas or other veg as a side dish, or even in a curry or stew, and more convenient to eat because they are podless. But then not as fun or interesting compared to the podded ones as an appetiser or snack.

Ah yes, they were podded ones but have had soya beans which are lovely too. Now, when searching for the podded ones at an Asian supermarket, would it have edamame or a photo of it on the front of package - want to make sure I pick up the right bag! Hubby will have to drive us to Canterbury so I can get to an Asian market...grrrr!!!!

The ones that I have seen in Asian stores would either have pictures of podded edamame on the front of the pack, or a 'window' in the front so you could see what's inside. What a shame you don't have somewhere convenient to get supplies :-/ I really envy people living in London and Manchester!
