#67: Maruchan: Ramen Noodle Soup Lime Chili Shrimp Flavor

So this looks to be one of the more exotic flavors out there as far as the more ‘domesticated’ ramens go. What I find curious is whether this is marketed towards the Hispanic or the Filipino populations. The combination of chili and lime are popular in both cultures and products marketed with a pepper and a green lime are very common.

Again, no clue why these keep coming up sideways, but I’m going to let the universe have its way with me. Basic ramen cake and single packet of powder seasoning.

The noodles cooked. I put the amount of water required to make the noodles buoyant and not the recommended 2 cups. I find the two cups tend to be a little more than required for my tastes.

So here’s the finished product. Not much to look at. The review here is being done live so as to keep it real as the say. The broth is extremely strong. I think it is honestly made with some of the same seasonings as Frito-Lay brand Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Crunchy with Lime cheese flavored snacks. The shrimp flavoring is reminiscent of a thai fish sauce. I’m going to say this really isn’t my cup of tea. The noodles had a slight bit more backbone; I cooked them long enough for sure but they were chewier than for instance the Maruchan Pork flavor ramen noodle soup’s. As far as a ramenrater.com rating, I’ve got to give these noodles 2 out of 5 stars. Just nothing here that makes me happy. Its rather surprising to me as I know that I’m definitely easily amused but nothing funny. Unfunny. No smiles. Get it here.

Products cooked according to package instructions. Product reviews done prior to adding any additional ingredients.
