Meet The Manufacturer: #1527: Lucky Me! Special Baked Mac Style Instant Macaroni

Macaroni is used in a lot of Filipino cuisine. One I’ve tried in instant form is Sopas, a soup with macaroni in it. The weather here is really quite cold (at least for Washington). It’s gotten down to as low as 26 degrees Fahrenheit the last few nights. This looks like a nice warm stick-to-your-ribsy kind of thing. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add macaroni to briskly boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents and combine. Enjoy!

A large sachet of noodles.

Kind of like a rotini tube macaroni.

Smells pretty good!


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added thin sliced beef I sauteed and coriander. The noodles have a nice shape and chew to them. The sauce is very good – it has a sweetness and tomato flavor and is frequently augmented with bits of textured vegetable protein which are just like little bits of real hamburger. This was a very pleasant surprise. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4807770273049.
