Meet The Manufacturer: #2333: Nissin Maxi Sopa Nissin Cuchareable Sabor A Pollo - Mexico - fideos instantanea

Here we have a big cup of noodles! I did a little translation on this one for you – ‘maxi’ means ‘big,’ ‘sopa’ means ‘soup,’ ‘cuchareable’ means ‘spoonable,’ and pollo means chicken.  Basically, this is a chicken noodle soup one can enjoy with a spoon instead of a fork. Got it? Let’s check it out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added corn, chicken and queso fresco. The noodles are indeed ‘cuchareable,’ and are interesting. They have a short and broad nature with a light chew and a little thickness. The flavor is that of a salty chicken soup. I should note that the broth has a slight thickness to it which gives it a more ‘homestyle’ kind of vibe. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662240137.

The name of this one – RapiFideo – is a combination of two words. ‘Rapido,’ meaning ‘Quick’ and ‘Fideo’ which means ‘Noodle.’ I reviewed these a while back – let’s revisit them for this Meet The Manufacturer!

As with the Maxi Nissin Sopa, these look to be ‘cuchareable’ noodle (spoonable) – although much thinner this time. They’re pre-seasoned as well.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken with adobo seasoning, bell pepper, cilantro, mild cheddar cheese and Cholula Chili Garlic hot sauce. The noodles are round with a light-to-mid chew and short in nature. The broth has a kind of spicy taste with a hint of lemon. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 7503020651021.
