Here’s yet another from a reader named Colin from the east coast. He’s always surprised me a little insofar as being able to send me varieties I hadn’t reviewed yet. I mean, this totally would have been one I would’ve passed over as previously reviewed, but I can’t find it anywhere. As far as walking by it at local stores, I’ve done so countless times. Anyways, let’s crack i open and have a look!

The powder soup base.
A granular mix with different herbs and spices.
A paste sachet.
A garnish sachet.
A little grip of shrimp!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, shrimp and coriander. The noodles were pretty good – a standard gauge with very soft chew. The broth has a nice tom yum taste – spicy, lemongrass and a little shrimp taste. The little shrimp hydrated well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 052066000012.
