#1217: Doll Hello Kitty Dim Sum Noodle Japanese Curry Flavour

Here’s one that was sent by Abbie C. of Hong Kong – thanks! I always try to source Hello Kitty and Pokemon related instants as my wife likes Hello Kitty and my son’s a Pokemaniac. Let’s check this one out!

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). To make it, add boiling water up to the line and let it sit a couple minutes.

Here’s the lid (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

A prize! Here’s the front and back of what looks to be a little playing card.

The powder soup base sachet.

Has a nice curry scent.

The solid ingredients sachet.

Little bits of vegetable and Hello Kitty kamaboko!

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles are your typical cup noodles. They are thin and flat. They have a very light chew to them. The broth is a nice and rich Japanese curry – very nice. The veggies hydrated well. The kamaboko? Well, just like all hydrated kamaboko, they’re slightly rubbery and more of an add texture than something with much flavor. The added bonus of being able to chew up Hello Kitty’s head is quite nice. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 6900082020276.

#1216: Batchelors Super Low Fat Noodles Chilli Chicken Flavour

Here’s another Joe B. of Nottingham, UK sent – thanks! Low fat noodles eh? I’ve actually been on a diet and exercising a lot lately – down 15 pounds already – and yes, I’m eating an instant noodle every day too! Let’s see how this low fat variety is…

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains milk. To make it, add everything to 300ml of water and boil until all of the broth is absorbed by the noodles.

The noodle block.

The seasoning sachet.

Has a funky chilli chickenny scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken that I seasoned with Mexcene and salt, peas and some big ugly carrot. The noodles are a slightly larger gauge than your standard instant. They are crumbly and really not very good. They kind of end up like an odd paste in the mouth. The flavoring is very light and has a slight spiciness to it. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 5000354401763.
