#1299: Mr. Noodles Noodles In A Cup Spicy Chicken Simulated Flavour

Here’s one my wife got for me on my birthday trip to Canada! Thanks, baby! Spicy chicken. Let’s check it out.

The cup.

The side panel from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

Detail from the lid (click image to enlarge). To prepare, empty sachet into cup and fill to 1/2 inch from the top with boiling water. Steep for 3 minutes, stir, and enjoy.

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Vegetables as well as seasoning in one sachet.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken, carrot, peas, sweet onion I has all sauteed with a little El Mexicano Adobo Seasoning and a sprinkle of colby jack cheese. The noodles are so strange; they smell like tortillas. I don’t understand why, but that’s what I get from them. They’re not the greatest in the world either and never seem to be completely prepared to me. The broth in this one wasn’t spicy, but it did seem to have a bit more flavor than the others in this line I’ve tried. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491002550.

Don’t mess with Canada – they’ve got their facts straight.

#1227: Mr. Noodles Chicken Kimchi Oriental Style Noodle With Soup Base

Here’s another one from my birthday trip to Canada. I think this may the first instance of chicken kimchi noodles I’ve heard of. Let’s give it a try.

Here’s a closeup of the lid (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself. To make this one, peel back the lid halfway, dump in the sachets and fill to 1/2 inch from the top with boiling water. Re-cover and let sit for 3 minutes and it’s ready.

The noodle block.

Soup base sachet.

Has a chicken taste.

The veg sachet.

Veg and powder.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg and a slice of processed cheese. The noodles are a little crumbly and have a slightly ‘off’ texture. The broth is really ‘off,’ it’s kind of like kimchi but then again not really. It has a kind of tomato and chicken thing going on but really oddly so. The bit of vegetable are there but I don’t know what for really. Everything kind of has this weird flavor throughout – the only thing I can liken it to is the smell of a bag of tortilla chips. Bottom line is that it really tastes neither like chicken nor kimchi and has extremely subpar noodles. 0.5 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 059491009009.

#1169 Mr. Noodles Noodles In A Cup Beef Simulated Flavour

Here’s another from my Canadian birthday trip! Thanks again, Kit! This one’s for my son Andy (check out his blog at www.andyslegostuff.com). Usually he goes for the chicken varieties, but beef is what he’s getting today! Let’s check it out!

Here’s detail from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.

Here’s the cup itself.

Vegetables and seasoning inside.

Andy’s a fan of noodles, but never likes broth. Also, any mention of spiciness has him running as well. Usually I get a little resistance when mentioning adding lots of veggies and meat, but he was open to it this time. Had a nice thunderstorm roll through after this and hung out on the balcony watching for flashes and listening for rumbles…

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added peas, carrots and beef. The noodles were pretty sad – very mushy and had a weird flavor. The broth is lackluster, although has a nice color to it. The veggies are only so-so. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491002352.

#1164: Mr. Noodles Bowl Chicken Simulated Flavour Noodles In A Bowl

Another from my trip to Canada for my birthday – thanks, Kit! A chicken bowl – let’s check it out!

From the bottom of the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). From the ingredients on the lid, this looks to be meat-free.

Detail from the removeable lid (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

Powder soup base sachet.

Chicken – simulated!

The vegetable sachet.

Peas and corn and carrot and other stuff.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken, peas, carrots, Walla Walla sweet onion, broccoli, bell pepper, and hard boiled egg. The noodles are a bit opn the weak side; Downright mushy. The broth has very little flavor; I see what they’re trying to get at as a chicken-like flavor, but it’s just not quite right. The veggies did well however – decent hydration and quality. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491009030.

For some reason, whenever I think about Canada, I think about when I watched TV as a kid. The Canadian shows were different; living so near Canada made it so I got to watch both US and Canadian TV. Well, this video has nothing to do with that except these are all 80’s sci-fi show intros. Check ’em out!

#1118: Mr. Noodles Kimchi Bowl Noodles Oriental Style Noodle With Soup Base

Here’s another one we found in Richmond, BC during my birthday trip! Thanks yet again to my wife Kit! By the way today is out 3 years and 7 months first meeting anniversary! I’m curious about this one since it’s a Canadian product and it’s a South Korean theme. My hopes are high! Kind of an interesting one to pick as well as I got an email today from MBC , a South Korean TV network, and I’m going to do an interview with them tonight for the Cul-Two TV show! When it’s out, I’ll share a link. As for this noodle bowl, let’s check it out!

Here’s all the package info (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free. Contains wheat & soy.

The noodle block.

The powder base packet.

Has a nice tangy flavor.

The veggie packet.

Looks like dehydrated kimchi to me!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef and Vidalia sweet onion sauteed in Worcestershire sauce, kimchi and green onion. The noodles are thin and weak with a very crumbly texture. The broth is a little on the light side, however is has some spiciness and a nice flavor. The vegetables were interesting as they tasted more like broccoli than kimchi, yet they were there. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 059491009016.
