#2242: Great Value Beef Style Noodles With Vegetables

Here’s one my sister brought me back from Canada – thanks again! Ah, Walmart. They’re probably the biggest store around and there are lots of them. What’s funny is that these are made in the United States and sold in Canada – but you can’t find them at Walmart store in the United States. Let’s check out the elusive Walmart Great Value cup noodle!

Some vegetables and loose seasonings from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and beef sauteed with soy sauce. The noodles were kind of on the blah side; nothing remarkable. The broth was salty and had a beef taste. Vegetables hydrated. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 628915231731.

#2167: Great Value Vegetable Flavour Noodles With Vegetables

Here’s one my sister got me from up in Canada for my birthday! Thank you! Walmar instant noodles!

I have a sad announcement to make. On 7/31/2016 at 4:40am, I bumped into the little container that held my sake cups that I use to display the contents of seasoning sachets. Got these as a birthday present in 2012, and they first went into service in review #684. At first I thought I’d only lost two, but I gave the other two that fell with them a little squeeze and another of the little white cups made a creaking sound, so it’s cracked through. Some might find my sadness a little bizarre, but I think many will understand that you get used to using tools and when they’re gone, it really, really sucks. Hoping I can find the same ones – I’ve looked before but never seen them again. Most likely, I’ll get a new set – they will show up for review #2168.

A little bit of the vegetables from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, tofu puff, spring onion and cilantro. The noodles are pretty good – a little crumbly. The broth has that kind of butter and broccoli taste to it; very meh on this application. The actual bits of vegetable in with this cup were so-so. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 628915242102.

#2110: Great Value Vegetable Flavour Ramen Noodles

I’m still a little surprised at how much I’ve liked these Walmart instant noodles from Canada; they’re really not at all bad. Sure, they’re very basic, but then again what do you expect? My sister got me these for my birthday! Thanks again, Sue! Well, let’s dig in!

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 cup (500ml) boiling water and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add contents of seasoning sachet. Stir and enjoy!

Kind of has a buttery scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander and spring onion. The noodles are a little bit on the doughy side in this one – not a complaint – they were good. The broth has a kind of butter and vegetable kind of taste; don’t know how else to describe it. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 628915242591.

#2073: Great Value Spicy Ramen Noodles

Awesome. Spicy instant noodles my sister got me for my birthday – from Walmart in Canada! Thank you again! So far these have been pretty good – the beef one tasted like beef and the chicken tasted like chicken. The operative word here is tasted; so many Canadian varieties don’t have a lot of flavor to them. However I should note these are manufactured in the United States. Not a slam on Canada though – I really like Canada! Let’s check this one out!

Detail of the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

The soup base sachet.

An ultra light powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, leftover seasoned ground beef for tacos, spring onion, shard cheddar and red chilli flakes. The noodles are just great – a very standard instant noodle gauge. The broth is a lightly spicy kind of light chicken broth. I’m surprised how good it is; I had this about 4 times when I was sick a couple months ago and it was so good with cheese and egg dropped into it. This is nice! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 628915231717.

#2045: Great Value Chicken Style Ramen Noodles

My sister got these for my birthday up in Canada – thank you! I’ve wanted to review some Walmart branded instant noodles for years; just seems fitting that Walmart would have instant noodles. These were bought in Canada, however they’re made in the United States. However, I’ve never seen instant noodles with the Great Value brand inside the United States… Anyways, let’s crack this open and see how this one fares.

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 cup (500ml) boiling water and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add contents of seasoning sachet. Stir and enjoy!
