I thought today I’d do a couple reviews. My son had a craving for some noodles for lunch and I thought hmmmm… Which one? I’ve currently got a ton of varieties to pick from right now, but there are many he will definitely not like. One of his faves is Nissin Top Ramen Chicken flavor and so thought he might like this one. This one’s for sale in Colombia, made by Nissin here in the US, and is basically a repackaged version of the chicken Top Raen. Let’s see how it goes!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself. To prepare, add the noodle block to 2 cups of boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in the soup base sachet and stir.
The noodle block.
Look familiar? It should – it’s identical to the chicken Top Ramen soup base sachet.
A very light yellow powder with the scent of chicken.
Today we watched Indiana Jones #3 and #4. Andy was working on his Minecraft game too!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken, bell pepper, sweet onion and lime. Andy wasn’t so sure about this one – actually, it wasn’t the soup and noodles so much but the lime. He’s never dealt with lime before and I told him not to eat it but to just let it float around. Well, being a standard 8 year old you can guess what he did. That was a puckerface if I’ve ever seen one! He took it in stride though and finished the rest of the bowl. This is the true baseline for me of the instant noodle. It can get better from here and worse from here. This is literally Chicken Top Ramen, just with different packaging. The noodles are nice and have a good texture. The soup is good too – nice chicken flavor. I’ve eaten this many times in many
different ways. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 7770662018035.
Here’s a very old Top Ramen commercial.
