#3037: Yum Yum Spicy Thai Seafood Flavour - Thailand

Here’s another one sent by the nice folks at Yum Yum – thanks again! It’s been crazy lately – doing the whole YouTube thing is very time consuming and had a couple weeks recently where reviewing has kind of hit the back burner. This week has been different and it’s really nice. I’ve been able to crank out quite a few reviews and get to many varieties I’ve wanted to. Here’s one of them – let’s check it out! ...see full post

#3031: Kinchan Tokufun Shukodo Miso-Aji - Japan

Here’s another one from Wes, a reader in northeast Canada. Thanks! He’s a big fan of products from Tokushima Seifun – and this is one of them. These Kinchan cups are interesting – they’ve got a neat character to them. Here’s what he wrote about this particular cup – ‘They started a new line of noodles supposed to taste like instant noodles of yesteryear. Says it is rich in aromas from red miso and vegetables.’ Sounds interesting – let’s check it out! ...see full post

#3030: Nongshim Shin Black Spicy Rich Bone Broth Flavor – South Korea

#3030: Nongshim Shin Black Spicy Rich Bone Broth Flavor - South Korea

Here’s one I found at the new T&T Supermarket in Lansdowne Center up in Richmond, BC. A Shin Black bowl! I knew they must exist; I mean, there’s generally a pack, cup and bowl for everything that comes out of South Korea. Well, here it is. What’s interesting is that this isn’t available in the United States, and up in Canada it’s not a product of the Nongshim China factory, which most bowls up there seem to be. ...see full post

Meet The Manufacturer: #3035: TTL Spring Chicken With Hua-Diao Liquor Instant Noodle – Taiwan

Meet The Manufacturer: #3035: TTL Spring Chicken With Hua-Diao Liquor Instant Noodle - Taiwan

Well, here we are again. I goit one of these bowls a long time ago and guess what happened? I opened the retort pouch and spilled it all over my leg and on the floor! Was crushed; hard to find this one and I had only one of them. Egad! Luckily, TTL sent all of these for Meet The Manufacturer (thank you again!) and now I can give it another go. I should note I didn’t spill anything this time – let’s give it a go! ...see full post
