Well it’s been quite a while since I’ve reviewed anything by Dr. McDougall’s. Why? Well, the first one I tried was a disappointment. I saw this one recently and thought maybe I should give them another chance. I am not expecting this will be one I like very much though; the two lines in large print immediately contradict eachother: ‘Pad Thai’ and ‘Noodle Soup.’ This just sounds wrong. But hey – maybe this is really good stuff. Let’s give it a look.

Here are the uncooked rice noodles. Short and wide.

In with the noodles are bits of vegetable and dehydrated tofu.

A very fine powder with flecks and a shade that is reminiscent of Pad Thai.

Finished (click to enlarge). Ladies and Gentlemen, pad thai noodle soup. This is… Okay so the rice noodles came out nicely – short, flat and broad and well hydrated. Now for the broth. Thin. Nothing like pad thai. Has a little lime taste and a kind of herbed taste. The floating bits of tofu are a lot like the marshmallows you get in the hot chocolate that comes with marshmallows. This is as far from pad thai as I can even express in words. It’s like someone gave a broken description of pad thai to someone who has short term memory problems and no taste buds a week prior and told them to make it. I kind of feel violated. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars. Saddened and offended. UPC bar code 767335011070.
