Here’s another one sent by a reader named Colin – thanks again! Today, I thought I’d cook up something for my wife Kit. Her actual name is Christine, but I’ve called her Kit for years. She’s always been a big fan of mushrooms – in fact, it’s because of her that I’ve started to like them. Oddly, here’s a Maruchan instant noodle I’ve not reviewed yet. I didn’t even know it still existed til Colin sent it over. Let’s have a look at this one.
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free. To prepare, boil 2 cups of water and add noodle block for 3 minutes. Add in contents of sachet. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Smells lightly mushroomy.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added mushrooms and processed cheese. The noodles are your standard Maruchan ramen noodle – nice squarish shape, standard instant gauge and a nice comforty chew. The broth has flavor!@ So often, mushroom broth just seems more on the bland end. This one tastes kind of like it should be as a side dish. One of the most American tasting instant noodles I’ve experience. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789002151.
Maruchan on Jeopardy!!
