Re-Review: Maruchan Ramen Noodle Soup Pork Flavor

I remember reviewing this one a while back up in Anacortes – got it and was really stoked as I’d never seen it before!

Here’s my son, Andreas! He’s eating a bowl of Indomie Special Chicken flavor noodles – he doesn’t like the soup do I drain it for him. He gave me a gift this year for Christmas which was a pack of Beef, Pork and Oriental Maruchan noodles! Awesome! Thank you so much, Andy! Love you and will enjoy these and review them!

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge). Pretty standard panels.

The noodle block.

I keep seeing people doing up posts like ‘how to make ramen healthy’ and one thing they say to do is to either get rid of the packet altogether or use barely any of it. I don’t think these people like to taste their food. Anyways, here’s the glorious single packet!

Here’s the seasoning powder – yes, it contains salt. So does a salt shaker, pizza, hamburgers, etc.

I don’t know if it does much, but it seems like the flavor stays more intact what with the increase in mass in the bowl. Anyways, the noodles – your standard all-Americanized/Japanese noodles. Note – to those who demand they delete the seasoning pscket, why not just buy some high quality ramen noodles? Soba! Come on! The broth is very nice – salty and pork flavor. I really liked this one. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars! Thasnks again, Andy! Merry Christmas!

Andy’s a huge LEGO maniac – and soon as I click ‘post,’ we’re going to build a ton of sets he got for Christmas!
