It's white -sometimes not, somewhat cheese like -though not in flavour, smells terrible if you forget it's there, and has an odd cultish following.

I'm curious on whether or not you like tofu, eat it, or thoughts on it all together.

I grew up eating it, mostly in miso or cold in summer with katsuobushi and shoyu. I've heard people make drinks out of it and some like it frozen first to turn it into an age-like product without the oil.

So, what is the western take on this originally Chinese product?

I like it. I can understand if people don't like the texture, but I personally don't mind it.

If it's made and cooked well, I like it. The cheap and mass-produced variant that my mom once bought tasted.... Cheap and mass-produced.
On the other hand, the homemade tofu of the local Szechuan restaurant in Johnstown is a favorite of mine. I really want to try fried tofu and fried stinky tofu. I'm a fan of soybeans in general, so my attachment to good tofu is no surprise. Soy always makes me feel simply peachy the following day, and temporarily corrects my normally bad sleeping habits.

It's great when it's cooked as tofu, and not a meat substitute. Tofu is tofu, and that's just fine. <3

I won't eat it. I don't want to eat it. I refuse to eat it.

Sorry.

I grew up eating tofu too, I really like it. If you want a good brand of tofu I highly recommend vita soy. It's the most common one at the market I go to, been eating it ever since i was little. Generally all the tofu at the super market I go to is either Chinese or korean. I don't think I've ever tried western take on tofu. I can imagine it's probably made with extra flavorings like bbq or chipotle :\

soybeans are bad for you unless they are fermented. If fermented then ya they are good for you in all kinds of ways, so its a mater of what ones your getting, and sad to say most the soy stuff you get in the usa odds are is the non fermented. Iv ate a lot of it over the years and some times its ok others its just S***.

Hm, I think tofu is okay, it all depends on how it is prepared and what it is served with although, At first I was kinda grossed out by it's appearance and smell, then I tried it. It's not that bad, But definitely not a favorite.
