This one was sent by the folks at A-Sha – thank you very much! I’m always on the lookout for Hello Kitty instant noodles. Why? Well, my wife really likes Hello Kitty. They wanted me to be sure to let people klnow that these cannot be found for sale in the United States – sorry folks – gotta pack your bags and fly to Taiwan! This one’s spicy – which seems a little funny to me. I would think anything Hello Kitty would be very light in flavor and tame for the kids. I think the kids over in Taiwan can handle their spicy stuff! That’s rad! Let’s check it out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure whether it contains meat or not. To prepare, add noodles to boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Drain. Stir in contents of liquid sachet and enjoy!
The noodle block. Very wide noodles – they actually make wider ones known as Hakka noodles. These noodles have scant few ingredients – salt, floue and water usually.
The spicy sauce sachet. Much like the noodles, the sauces usually contain maybe 3 or 4 ingredients.
Has an interesting soy and spicy scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added Nappa cabbage, shrimp and Fresno chilli pepper. The noodles in this one are great. They’ve got such a nice texture and chewiness. They’re not just broad, they’re thick. The flavor is slightly sweet, soy and spicy. The spiciness is pretty decent – Hello Kitty’s on fire! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4715635851052.
Here’s a video outlining big things that have happened for A-Sha in the United States with their distributor in California. I hear they’re expanding again! Wow!
