These came by way of Snackoo – a company that supplies you with great snack boxes, containing all sorts of fascinating things as well as ramen noodles. Why not check them out?

So Jinmailang (or JML) is a Chinese company which has a big footprint in the instant noodle universe. I heard once that one of every four instant noodles produced on the planet are produced by Jinmailang. That’s a lot of noodles! This one sounds particularly tasty – sweet and sour pork ribs.  Let’s take a look!

The vegetable sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, fried pork and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles came out with a decent backbone and gauge I found very nice. The flavor was kind of what I expected. You see, sweet and sour in the United States is better called sweet and sweeter. Often in Chinese cuisine, sweet and sour has sourness from black vinegar – which actually I find to be more tart than sour. Regardless, it was a really good balance and I liked it. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6921555500057.
