#553: Samyang 60 Ingredients Cup

Here’s a bit of a mystery sent to me by Nathan in Canada. So what’s this one? Well, the little icon up top gave it away as a Samyang variety, but all I can say is it’s 60 Ingredients. Let’s try it, and if you can read the cup and it’s called something more, please let me know in a comment!

I’m thinking there’s a good amount of the ingredients in here…

Lots of interesting bits and pieces – and a ton of fiery powder.

Click image to enlarge. Well, most of the bigger ingredients hid so here you are. The noodles are different; they’re chewy and spongy too. They’ve got a strange consistency that I’m not used to seeing in Samyang products. The broth is spicy of course – rarely do I review non-spicy Korean noodles; they just don’t make a lot of them. The veggies were interesting found quite a few bits of mushromo – more than I expected. Not a bad cup noodle but room for improvement. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8801073210134.

Feed you kids spicy noodles – builds character!

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

    Apparently the korean on the package says “Ramen with taste”, according to a comment on this video review of the packaged version of this product: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceWmRHx9dXg

    The 60 ingredient thing sounds like a gimmick. How much could there possibly be of every ingredient? 0.0002%? Do they list them all? Id like to see the label on this one.

        Ok! After a little investigative work this is what I found – I first found the nutrition facts label on the korean samyang website, then I used online OCR software to convert the image of the label to editable korean characters, then used google translate to translate the whole thing and ended up with this:

        I’m really hoping the word “dogs” is a mistranslation….I wonder how desperately they needed to meet that 60 ingredient quota..

      The label didn’t have anything other than what you saw in english. It was donated from Canada, so they don’t have those domestic distro stickers like we have here that are translated (loosely usually). Email Samyang?

    The packaged version of this (not the cup version) is my *favourite* packaged ramen of them all!

    The soup broth has such a rich flavour!
    (Yeah, I’m Canadian too, if you couldn’t guess from my spelling..)

    I’m surprised this is so uncommon..
    (it’s not on the english version of their site..)

    This is great stuff.. less spicy than Shim Ramen, and the soup has way more character! The noodles themselves aren’t as good as Shim though.. Maybe this ‘tasty’ soup base, with their non-fried ramen (http://sometimesgoodfood.tistory.com/228) noodle would be the ultimate.

      Interesting… Yeah a guy from Canada sent me these and I found them to be interesting; especially since they didn’t say Samyang… Can’t wait to get some more Canadian instant noodles – it’s weird living only 80 miles from the border and just go over and all the instant noodle varieties are so much different!

      Thanks for the comment!
