#1909: Asia Gold Instant Noodles With Chicken Flavouring

Today I’ll be reviewing another one I got after visiting Thailand – I went to a special event held by the company that makes MAMA instant noodles. They make different brands and this one’s made in Hungary for the European market. Let’s check it out! Oh, by the way – this one will be for my son Andy – he’s a fan of anything chicken instant noodle. He’s got a blog himself – Andy’s LEGO Stuff – go check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, put noodle block and contents of sachets into a bowl. Add 320ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The powder soup base sachet.

A granular powder with some vegetable bits in there.

A seasoned oil sachet.

Has a garlic scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chicken and a slice of processed cheese. The noodles have a decent texture and chew – decently hydrated in the 3 minutes. The broth has a nice chicken flavor with bits of vegetable here and there. It does have a little hint of spiciness, but not enough to put my son off of it. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 9002859063213.

#1870: Asia Gold Instant Noodles With Beef Flavouring

Here’s a neat one. During my trip to Thai President Foods’ Agent Meeting in Bangkok last month, I went to a seminar for a large group of European distributors. There were a couple guys who were there that I met from the Thai President Foods Hungary factory, and I was able to obtain samples of many of the products that are manufactured there, this being one of them. I noticed that on the label, an Austrian company is distributing this one. Let’s have a look!
