I read an article recently about Nissin starting to sell instant noodle in Colombia, so I shot an email to my friend Scott over at Nissin Foods USA and asked if I could maybe get some samples. He sent some! Thanks, man! This is pretty much identical to beef Top Ramen, but packaged for the Colombian market. Speaking of Top Ramen, Nissin is having a neat contest (here’s a link). Neat prizes and it’s easy. Anyways, let’s check it out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). I desaturated the color a bit to make it easier to read. Contains beef powder.
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Has a beef scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef, jalapenos, carrots, and sweet onions. The noodles have a nice chew to them – there are plenty of them as well. The broth has a nice rich beef flavor. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 7770662018028.
