It’s pretty rare for me to hit a regular old supermarket here in the USA and find something I’ve not reviewed before, but it happens from time to time. I found this one at a WinCo Foods in Edmonds, Washington. It used to be a Top Foods a while ago but I think they’ve all but gone out of business and WinCo moved in. WinCo is kind of weird – imagine a big grocery store but kind of like Costco but not Costco and kind of cold and you have to bag your own groceries. Oh – and there are tons of signs everywhere in this really basic font. It almost seems like a weird government experiment – but I digress! This is a new one from Nissin – looks tasty for this cold weather. Let’s check it out!

The noodles inside the cup before cooking.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added green onion. This one features the ‘spoonable noodles’ first seen in Nissin’s Spoon-It line. The noodles are egg noodle length and half the width. They’re a little thicker though and quite nice. The broth has a good chicken flavor and was satisfying. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662030431.

This is the story of Nissin Foods – probably my favorite instant noodle documentary thus far.
