#1554: ICA Asia Fast Noodles Snabbnudlar Räksmak

Here’s another one that was sent by a kind reader in Sweden – thanks! This is my second or third Swedish instant noodle. It’s been interesting to translate the packaging too. The little dots over the ‘a’ in Räksmak are interesting. I tried it in Google and without the dots got straight flavor, and with them got shrimp flavor. Of course, once I opened the pack I found that the seasoning sachet said ‘prawn flavor,’ so that kind of sealed the deal on correct translation for me. Anyways, let’s have a look at this one!

#1517: Katoz Instant Noodles Spicy Chili

Here’s another one sent to me by a reader in Sweden – thank you! This is a Swedish brand – Katoz and is manufactured by MAT Kompaniet. Swedish instant noodles are a new thing to me; this is the second review I’ve ever done involving instant noodles from Sweden. One unique thing about Swedish instant noodles – they are really into the metric system. Usually on the instruction for preparation, the amount of water is called for by cups (more Western) or cc (cubic centimeter) or mL (milliliter). Well, in Sweden the go with decaliter, which is 100cc. This one requireds 4 dl of water, or 400cc/400ml. I’ve NEVER seen decaliters used before, and the only reason I knew what was going on was from elementary school. Yes kids, I know it seems ridiculous at the time, but you will use this information later in life – especially when making Swedish instant noodles! But I digress. Let’s check out these Katoz Spicy Chili noodles from Sweden!

Here’s another one that was sent by a kind reader in Sweden – thanks! This is pretty exciting – my first Swedish instant noodle review. I wouldn’t have thought of a connection between Sweden and instant noodles really; until I realized something a while back. You’ll see lots of Taiwanese instant noodles that have Scandinavian words ending in -smak a lot – that’s flavor in Swedish. So, here we are with kycklingsmak, which means chicken flavor. Anyways, let’s see how the chicken instant noodles sold in Sweden are!
