#465: Nissin Souper Meal Picante Shrimp Flavor Hot & Spicy

I thought I’d tried all of these but it appears I was wrong. So here’s yet another Souper Meal – Nissin’s answer to America’s need for another ‘Hungry Man’ style food product.

So it comes with three packets. The ‘Finishing Touch’ is a sort of sauce which is mixed in after you’ve cooked the noodles in the microwave. Yes – the microwave. Rarely do I find myself with a microwave-only product but this is one of those. No directions for cooking other than in a microwave are supplied with this bowl. To the right of the Finishing Touch packet is the seasoning powder packet followed by the veggies – and a lot of them there are that’s for sure. A nice touch.

So you add water up to the fill line and microwave for 4 to 5 minutes. I ended up giving it 5 minutes. Noodles came out perfectly cooked.

Well, here goes… The noodles weren’t all that impressive to me and quite honestly, I much rather have the noodles from Top Ramen than these ‘premium’ ones. The broth was nice – has a good little nip to it from the spiciness. The veggies were more than adequate. What kind of surprised me here was that it wasn’t all that tasty. I almost think a bit less water would have made this a little more palatable. One final note is that the bits of veggies – the bell pepper in particular – remind me of Totino’s Party Pizza… Strange! Well, 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. Find it here. UPC bar code 070662007037.

Just what I’ve been looking for…
