Beany goodness

Every so often Costco has something truly weird. For instance, I recently bought a container of Seapoint Farms dry roasted edamame (soybeans). They're about the same size and shape as peanuts, though the flavor is different and they're a grayish green. They also have about 1/4th the fat, 4 times the fiber and twice the protein.  One serving has 1/3 of your daily recommended fiber!  This particular brand uses only non-GMO soybeans.

The edamame is crunchy, just like dry roasted peanuts.  If not for the color and flavor, you'd think you were eating peanuts.  I've had fresh edamame before, and this doesn't really taste like it.  The flavor is a bit weird and almost unpleasant when you first taste it, but the more you eat, the better it tastes.  After a handful or so, it develops a nice nutty flavor.

With less fat than peanuts, they'll probably last even longer on the shelf (and in my experience, dry roasted peanuts last pretty much forever as long as the lid is on tight).
