Here”s something new from Annie Chun’s! It was sent a little while back and ended up at the bottom of my noodle hamper… I’ve been going through everything lately as we’re moving and found it! It sounds really good – very curious… Let”s see how it comes out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles in 1 1/2 cups water for 1 minute. Drain and set aside in a bowl. Boil another cup of water and add contents of soup base sachet. Add broth to noodles and enjoy!
A pouch of fresh ramen noodles.
The soup base sachet.
Has a curry and coconut scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added fish ball and green onion. The noodles have a nice fresh feel. What’s nice about these like many new varieties is that they do not require refrigeration. The broth is extremely good. I would say this is the best that I’ve tried from Annie Chun’s – it has a nice Thai coconut flavor; I get curry and lemongrass and coconut in there. It’s really great stuff. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars!UPC bar code 765667140406.
Here’s one of the new varieties from Annie Chun’s that they sent! It’s 22 degrees outside – very cold! This looks appropriate for such a cold day – let’s check it out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free and a lot of natural ingredients. Lower calorie/fat as well. To prepare, cook noodles in 1 1/2 cups water for 1 minute. Drain water and boil another pot of water, 1 cup this time. Add the liquid sachet. Put the cooked noodles in a bowl and then add the broth.
The fresh noodles.
Liquid soup base sachet.
Has a nice chicken vegetable scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken, broccoli, big ugly carrot, leeks, sweet onion and green onion. The noodles are reminiscent in texture of South Korean fresj udon cups – then again the noodles in those generally come in the same package. Yet these are much thinner than udon and have a slightly bouncy chew and good texture. The broth has a slightly sweet and full vegetable flavor which goes well with the noodle. The interaction between noodle and broth leaves me with a fresh and premium feel. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 765667140505.
This is it – the last of the nine Annie Chun’s samples that were sent for Meet The Manufacturer. It’s definitely been an interesting jaunt! Some I really liked quite a bit, some I didn’t like so much. What’s very evident here is that Annie Chun’s definitely has a wide range of flavors. The last one is Chinese Chicken.

Fresh Hokkien noodles.

I’ve got to say, this stuff smells fantastic.
The last of the seasoning blocks I have enjoyed so much!
The seasoning block.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added oven baked chicken, cilantro and some onion. The noodles are really nice – I steeped them with the non-microwave method. Excellent. The broth was really nice – had a good real chicken flavor; I would deem it real comfort food flavor. The seasoning block lent itself nicely with lots of good veg. Great stuff – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 765667100301 – get it here.
