#746: JML Artificial Mushroom Chicken Flavour Instant Noodle (Large Bowl)

Here’s another one of the big JML bowls sent by Michelle L. of Tarrytown, New York. Mushroom chicken eh? Alright, let’s give this a try.

An included fork!

One angry and round noodle block – sometimes they’re hard to get out of the containers.

The powder seasoning packet.

I’m not sure if powdered mushroom is the culprit, but this stuff smelled like burnt plastic. I decided to have a taste. It also tasted like burnt plastic. Not good.

Seasoned oil packet.

This one kind of smells like mushrooms and chicken.

Veggie packet.

Here they are – decent amount.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a hard boiled egg with some Cavender’s Greek Seasoning, some kizami shoga (pickled ginger), some of my veggie mix (ack! time to go back to the produce stand – we’re out!), a little chicken lunch meat and a bit of Texas Pete Hot Sauce. The noodles are okay but not exceptional. The broth has this flavor. I don’t really like it at all; it’s mushroom-like but not mushroom. It’s got this flavor that actually does remind me of the smell of burning plastic. It’s also almost spicy in a weird way. I will finish this bowl of noodles as I am hungry, but I tell you what – this is pretty bad. 1.25 out of 5.0 stars. 6921555583951.

I don’t think these guys would really like this either.
