#1647: No Name Shrimp Flavour Oriental Noodles And Soup Mix

Back in the day, there used to be a brand that was literally generic; they would have products with a white background and a very stark blocky black text. A can of dog food would simply say dog food. I think they’re long gone, but this is kind of the next best thing to it. No Name is a line by Canadian company Loblaw’s, a grocery store chain. Let’s give No Name a look!

The soup base sachet. Notice that it says prawns flavor instead of shrimp flavor as printed on the outside.

Has a shrimp scent to it.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, mung bean sprouts and spring onion. The noodles had a kind of funk to them; kind of soggy with a filmy feel. The broth wasn’t bad – on the bland side but I’ve had much worse. It had a nice little sweetness to it I liked. The peas which were pretty common hydrated well. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 060383049812.

During the holidays, we watched the Will Ferrell movie ‘Elf’ and he drinks maple syrup at one point. Maple syrup is one of the best things that comes from Canada, and so I thought this Loblaw’s brand President’s Choice 100% Pure Syrup sounded like something to check out.
