I got a couple of these family packs sent as samples from Nongshim America the other day…
I’ve had tons of the version that they sell in Korea, but now they’re making it in the United States – specifically in Rancho Cucamonga, California! Today I’ll give this stuff a try and see if it’s as good as what I’ve tried from Korea.
The back of the package (click to enlarge).
The noodle block.
The powder seasoning packet.
Tastes like peanuts and has black sesame seeds in there.
The veggie packet.
Here are all the seasonings hanging out together.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some sweet onion. The noodles are great – plentiful and of a nice gauge. The slurp up just the right amount of broth and arrive at a very good consistency and chew. The broth is great – the peanut and spicy elements all combine to make a really fiery as well as hearty combination that is quite enjoyable. The veggies are plentiful and there’s a nice variety of them. This stuff is excellent, just like its Korean counterpart. Nice to see that everyone will get to try this stuff in the USA! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – wonderful stuff! UPC bar code 031146019526.
Here’s the Korean TV commercial for Jinjja Jinjja. These guys are known as Cultwo.
Here’s some of their Korea radio show.
