To kick off this Meet The Manufacturer, I thought I’d start with a flavor that just about every instant noodle company makes. Chicken. Indeed, it’s a kind of universal flavor – one that everyone can identify with. Well, unless your vegetarian. This is a very unique instant noodle insofar as it comes with a free drink – something I’ve never seen before in my well over 2,000 reviews thus far. So let’s check out Mama Pat’s Chicken Taco!
Mama Pat’s Chicken Taco Flavor Instant Ramen Noodles – United States
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 2 cups of boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Take off heat and add sachet contents and let sit for 1 minute. Stir and enjoy! To make the fruit drink: add sachet contents to 8 ounces water (I’m going with cold water). Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A light powder.
The vegetables sachet.
A nice colorful mixture.
The included drink sachet.
The drink (click to enlarge)! Definitely tastes like lemonade and has a decent sweetness and tartness.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added jalapeno slices, sour cream, colby jack cheese, Cholula Chilli Garlic hot sauce, green onion and baked chicken. The noodles hydrated well and had a nice quantity and standard chew. The broth is thin but has a good chicken flavor. What makes this one a very nice domestic chicken style is the included vegetables – onion and bell pepper definite highlights. I found that it enhanced things very nicely. Definitely my favorite domestic chicken flavor thus far. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 728028430929.
