#878: Nissin Top Ramen Short Cuts Lime Chili Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

So here’s the last of the top Ramen Short Cuts varieties that Nissin Foods USA sent me. Thanks again! Lime chili flavor eh? Sounds interesting. Its kind of funny; I got an email from someone at a company called Citrojugo the other day. Citrojugo is a company in Mexico that makes lime juice. I think they saw one of my reviews mentioned ‘jeruk nipis,’ which is ‘lime juice’ in Indonesian. Well, Citrojugo was curious if my company would be interested in it for my products. I told them that I only review products related to instant noodles, but that I could probably try their stuff and work it into a review of another product, such as marinated chicken with their lime juice. Well, they immediately dispatched a liter of clarified preserved lime juice. Serious stuff! I open it up and stuck my nose in the Nalgene containment vessel and got a real nosefull of powerful lime! I’ll be mentioning more about their stuff in upcoming reviews – haven’t marinated chicken with it yet but will be soon and it should be quite amazing!

Here’s the back as well as the side panels (click to enlarge).

It comes in one single bag! The noodles are pre-seasoned and require no packets, allowing you to make as much or as little as you want.

Look at all those noodles! I will say it again, these are really good straight out of the box – trust me.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some baked chicken breast, onions, broccoli and green bell pepper, medium cheddar cheese, a hard boiled egg with Ajishima Kimchi Furikake and some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The noodles come out much like egg noodles – although if you read the ingredients, these are indeed made with wheat noodles – not eggs. They’re soft and oplentiful – and tasty., Not chewy; definitely something made specifically for the US market. The broth is good – a strong lime and chili taste which was enjoyable. All in all quite interesting and works well as a base for a meal like this. Of course, I only review the base product before the extras are added in. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars – good stuff!

Wish Nissin’d give me a call and send me here! Looks so awesome!
