Meet The Manufacturer: #1072: Deshome Aloe Noodle With Spicy Soybean Sauce

So here’s the first of many reviews I’ll be doing of products from Deshome of Taiwan! These are very unique – naturally sun-dried as well as containing aloe! Definitely different! Let’s check ’em out!

Distribution sticker. Vegetarian.

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). The back isn’t black but clear so I put a dark piece of paper in there when I scanned.

Look at these – never have I seen noodles like this – interesting! Notice how there are two blocks here: the top one is a lighter color which contains aloe. The one underneath contains purple sweet potato, hence the color.

The sauce packet.

The spicy soybean sauce.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef, Vidalia sweet onion and minced garlic sauteed in soy sauce. The noodles have a very nice texture – chewy and hearty. They have slightly different textures between the two types giving an interesting balance to the dish. The sauce has a rich soybean flavor – almost meaty in and of itself, along with a nice bit of spiciness. These characteristics aren’t competed against by salt and are almost rich and mild at the same time. Unique and delicious. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 4716873921002.
