Real Wasabi

If you enjoy Japanese food, particularly sushi, then you've probably tried the spicy paste called wasabi. What you may not know is that most so-called "wasabi" is actually an inauthentic mixture of horseradish, mustard, corn starch, and food coloring. Real Wasabi is a unique rhizome that grows in the mountains of Japan, and has a unique flavor and a smooth finish. This gift set includes two pairs of chopsticks, two wasabi dishes, and a container of powdered wasabi. Just add water to make it into that familiar spicy paste, but with an added authentic kick! $19.99 USD. (Via Josh Spear.)
