#497: Nissin Demae Iccho Instant Macaroni In Soup Seafood And Abalone Flavour

My sister brought these back for me from Canada a while back and I’ve been coveting them for a special occasion. I thought closing in on the 500th review would be a good time to break out the tippy macaroni! So here we go!

On the left we have a liquid packet and on the right some powdered seasoning.

Certainly looks just like regular macaroni doesn’t it? Seafood and abalone sure aren’t flavors you’d expect to have with macaroni over here in the states! Maybe cheese or white cheese or a casserole or something. Predominately cheese for sure – but seafood? Awesome!

The sauce packet was what looked like oil and soy sauce. The powder was simply a powder base.

Click image to enlarge. Here’s the finished, unadulterated product. The macaroni took only four minutes to cook and seemed like there was no way it would suck up 500cc of water, but it did! The flavor was very nice – not too salty, not too seafoody. A very tasty meal indeed, although kind of tough to keep on the fork – perhaps because of the oil? Anyways, I really liked this alot! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars!

Lucky Me! brand is a brand of Monde Nissin (Nissin Worldwide) and since I couldn’t find anything else, went with this commercial.

I can’t resist adding a short about BBSes… I ran one for quite a few years back in the late 80’s early 90’s…
