wasabi taste

I found the silver foil pack around my job so of course I buy it to try out, not having any idea what I'm in for, just expecting wasabi taste. I open it and in a prime example of excessive packaging, typical of Japanese stuff, I find one of those "do not eat" dehumidifer things which baffles my mind as each strip of nori (roasted seaweed) covered with wasabi powder is individually wrapped in plastic, all in a plastic tray. I think there were 6 sheets with 6 strips each and wow, were these yummy and hot. Not every strip was hot but some were very hot, bringing tears to my eyes. Awesome find and I need to pick up more for myself as well as to send to my wasabi loving friends :-)
