Powder on the left, seasoned oil on the right.

This is some serious stuff – the noodles are very nice – not plump but very tasty with a slightly crumbly nature on the palate after a chew or two. The flavoring is perfect; a lot of lemony shrimp and spicy heat going on. The egg entices and offers a cooling oasis of respite from the fiery tastes offered. I loved it. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Wow, good memory with recognizing those packets! I bet the same company makes multiple products, some for export in other languages, and some in japan, etc.
Hard to say – there’s a good chance its a similar packaging equipment and packet brand with different contents… Who knows…
