The First Ever IkuraJon Post!

        Starting at my diaper wearing days I was always intrigued by the vast variety of food that I experienced. Around the age of two, I laid eyes upon this unique type of caviar. Ikura denotes fish roe, but to me it connotates these tiny orange edible spheres, that pop and explode with an intense and unique taste. When I was seven years old my parents opened my eyes to the amazing world of sushi, and this is where my eyes gazed upon these glowing orbs within the confines of a refrigerated display. Their orange color was incredibly appealing to a little seven year old like me, and I knew I had to try them. The only words that left my mouth were, "mommy, I want some of those please!" As the waitress placed this delectable mountain of Ikura in front of my tiny seven year old head, I fell into a deep trance of wonderment! I dug into the mound of astonishment and right then and there, I knew that I was in love! How could something so diminutive and colorful be so amazing? Most seven year olds would prefer a simple bright red fire truck or a couple of small plastic dinosaurs to throw around, but all I wanted was more and more Ikura.
