Meet The Manufacturer: #1842: Forest Noodles Purple Sweet Potato Noodle With Taiwanese Sauce

I think one of my favorite things are noodles that have something differe – like these. Purple noodles are pretty fascinating – first off, they’re purple. I remember hearing about ‘Space Potatoes’ a while back – somehow crossing the stuff that makes eggplants purple with a potato. I think blue potatoes would be kind of neat, but how would they taste? Well, let’s see how these noodles taste!

The back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add a little salt to a pot of boiling water. Add in noodle block and cook 5.5-6.5 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

Purple noodles!

The sauce sachet.

Has a sweet scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added beef and coriander. The noodles had a very nice chew to them- excellent quality. The sauce coats everything nicely and has a great Taiwanese satay taste to it. Very ‘stick to your ribs’ kind of stuff – nice and hearty. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.
