Here’s another that we got in Canada on my birthday. Here in the area I live, Western Family is a store brand, but never have I seen an instant noodle of theirs. Honestly, I haven’t seen any store brand instants here – not that they don’t exist. Well, let’s check out these noodles in a cup!
Here’s what’s on the cardboard packaging (click image to enlarge). The instructions on the left are on the top and the Nutrition Facts on the right are on the bottom.
A plain white foam cup.
Here’s a close-up of the lid (click image to enlarge).
The noodle block. But where are the veggies and seasoning?
Well, the seasoning powder is here at least.
\Both the vegetables and the seasoning are in here! Interesting.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added kamaboko, green bell pepper, Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake, sweet onion, broccoli and kizami shoga (pickled ginger). The noodles are crumbly and of slight backbone. The broth has a medium bland taste of salt and vegetables, and the veggies were so-so. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 062639297121.
Tomorrow, we’re driving to Portland, OR. I’ve been given the great opportunity to check out a few hours of the instant noodle workshop offered by the Wheat Marketing Center! I’ll be doing a special post about my trip and let everyone know more about the Wheat Marketing Center and what goes on there. Stay tuned!
