#2010: MAMA Rangers Snack Noodles Popcorn Flavour

Here’s another one of these interesting snack noodles from Myanmar! This pack is very small – 15g actually! Let’s see what’s within!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, open package and eat. enjoy!

Here’s the contents of one single package.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added some almonds. The noodles are crunchy and very short. The flavor is that of kettle corn; buttery and sweet. It’s kind of bizarre to be honest; the texture of the noodles isn’t where I expect the flavor of kettle corn! But sure enough, there it is. Plus, there are no popcorn husks to get stuck in your teeth! For A snack noodle, I give this 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8951011551123.

#1964: MAMA Instant Noodles Coconut Milk Flavour

When I tried the cup version of this, I liked it so much it got on the Top Ten Cups List for 2015. I’ve been waiting for the right time to try this one; since there’s probably only one in all of the United States I’m guessing, I really wanted to make it the right day. Well, since it is soon to expire, it’s the right day. Let’s have a look and see if it’s as good as the cup.

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 250ml boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Add in contents of sachets. Stir and enjoy!

Has a coconut scent.

A seasoned oil sachet.

A bright colored oil.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, baked chicken, coriander and seared sweet onion. The noodles are slightly different from the normal MAMA fare – slightly less crumbly – something I found fascinating and enjoyable. The broth was just as good as the cup variety – it has a nice coconut flavor and almost a haunting sweetness to it that’s not overwhelming, but just right. The oil has a tinge of spiciness, but it’s way in the background. This stuff is so intriguing; and I have fallen under it’s spell. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8951987101906.

Another one from the big batch I got after our Thailand trip from the MAMA noodles people. Thanks again! So this has been one of my favorites in the past – the regular Shrimp Creamy Tom Yum has been on my annual top ten list in the past – but this is the Myanmar version. I’ve noticed in some varieties a little but of a smoky taste – wonder what we’ll find here? One way to find out – let’s check out this shrimp creamy tom yum!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether this contains shrimp or not, but I would guess it does. To prepare, add contents of package to a bowl and add 300ml boiling water. Cover and let steep 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
