#372: Noodle Time Spicy Thai Instant Ramen Noodles With Real Vegetables

So let’s start with the name – Noodle Time. Apparently, this is a Canadian brand. They started in 2001 in Edmondton, Alberta and they make this stuff in a few flavors. They pride themselves on No MSG, althought the bowl if consumed entirely contains about 1,500mg of sodium.

Not a lot of em, but those appear to be real vegetables. A little pack of seasoning too.

Here they are on the noodle block…

The vegetables were so few that they were a joke. I know, harsh words but I calls em’ as I sees em. The roughest part is that on the side of the bowl it has an 800 number so you can call and comment on the quality of their product. I won’t do that but if I were to, I would be telling them to up the ante – more veggies, better noodles and a heartier soup. .50 out of 5.0 stars – yeah – that’s half a star.

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

    The key to Noodle Time is not using as much water as they say to use. The ideal water level is just under half of what they say. That makes the noodles not be soggy and keeps the flavouring at a nice level. I agree that if the stated amount of water is used that they do become too soggy.

    I am a big fan of the chicken flavoured Noodle Time. Great stuff!
