The stuff we get at the asian market comes in a jar and is as thick as the molasses used in making it.

Do any of you use sweet soy sauce?

I use only health boy soy sauces and Kikkoman low sodium.

This is their dark soy sauce. Its thick and sweeter than regular.




To a lot of people dark sy sauce and sewwt soysauce are the same thing. But if you are referring to kecap manis, yes, I have some of that too.

From the descriptions, it sounds like it might taste like Hoisin sauce. Does it?

There are similarities to hoisin sauce. It's a lot saltier to me.

Not at all. It tastes like soy sauce with brown sugar in it.
