#859: Tradition Instant Noodle Soup Imitation Chicken Flavor

It’s been a while since I reviewed a Kosher instant noodle! Usually they’re pretty good. Let’s give this a try. By the way Kosher instant noodle company: I think Matzo Ball Ramen would be an extremely huge hit.

Here’s the noodle block – pre-seasoned.

This is what was underneath the noodle block.

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles have a nice light and buttery ‘comfort texture’ that I would say is common is instants marketed towards the US market. The broth is nice and ‘comfortty’ too! Has a good chicken taste and not very salty – it’s calm. The vegetables? Not too bad – I liked the corn and carrot. This was pretty good and I liked it! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 735375601254 – here’s the bag version.

This is a really good video about what Kosher foods are and what the symbols on different packages mean. The noodles I tried today even have a quick appearance!

I was really hoping to post a documentary that used to be on youTube called “Postville: When Cultures Collide” – if you can find it, it’s a really fascinating story – but here’s a little story about a book about Postville, Iowa. Here’s a Wiki link.

    I buy these all the time, imitation chicken & beef flavours and also the vegetable one. We normally love these! My daughter loves to make these as a snack and they’re especially tempting to have during the winter. Although I do make soups at home, these are a convenient and quick snack to keep around and we always have them in our cupboard.

    Pretty disappointed that it turns out that the last huge batch of cups that I purchased is unusable. The cups contain only tiny, crushed up noodle crumbs – no reg size noodles. Tried making one and discovered this. It was truly disgusting and mushy. Flushed it. The rest of the cups feel the same and there’s way too many to just throw out. I really hope that Tradition Foods does something about this as I can’t go back to the store since I don’t have my receipt anymore… will write to Tradition Foods and see what they say. 🙁

      That’s not cool! I would guess that it’s most likely that something happened during distribution to cause this to happen. Instant noodles are really quite fragile when it comes down to it. I would honestly go to the store and mention it – if they have more of them, they might also have the same issue and then take them back.
