Last evening, my wife and I both started really getting attacked by an insidious enemy. One that doesn’t show itself but just occurs without warning. Allergies. Eyes, nose throat; everything just seemed to be very busy making us miserable. At this point, I would usually turn to an old standby my mother used to make for me when my face’s innards went awry like this – Mrs. Grass Chicken Soup Mix. Wonderful stuff – it has a little rubbery golden egg shaped thing called (I’m totally not kidding about this) ‘The Golden Flavor Nugget.’ Lots and lots of noodles and chickenny goodness. Well, we don’t have any, so I thought I’d go ahead and hit up this one. Creamy chicken flavor is one of my favorites – and Nissin doesn’t make creamy chicken Top Ramen anymore so I wonder how this stuff is. So off we go intgo noodle land!
Here’s the back and side panels (click image to enlarge).
A bag contains the noodles. The box contains three of these and three seasoning packets for – you guessed it – three servings.
Here’s a seasoning packet.
A nice pile of powdery seasoning.
Finished (click image to enlarge). I made a can of store brand mixed veggies and a little turkey breast lunch meat, added some Krazy mixed Up Salt and added the noodles on top and a tiny bit of Kizami Shoga (pickled ginger). The noodles are nice and broad and soft like egg noodles. The flavoring? Oh man – this is the stuff! This tasted exactly like the old creamy chicken Top Ramen! I would go insofar as to say that if you lowered the amount of water you used and cooked a pack of Top Ramen noodles (maybe use a round 1 1/2 cups of water) and then when it was done add the flavoring and stir and let it sit a little, you’d be sitting pretty. This stuff is great! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars! UPC barcode 070662070031 .
