Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Sapporo Ichiban Japanese Style Noodles & Chicken Flavored Soup

Here’s the one that everybody’s got – chicken. Very few instant noodle companies don’t have a chicken noodle soup on the market. I can think of a few, but they’re kind of far and few between. Chicken is kind of a universally accessible flavor and meat (well, except for Vegans). I think this probably will be a pretty good one. I gave it 4.0 out of 5.0 in May of 2015 when I re-reviewed it back then. I kind of remember people asking me to give them another look and so I did. Anyways, Let’s get to it!

A light powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken with pepper and Salt For Life, spring onion and Salad Cosmo organic mung bean sprouts. The noodles come out just as well as the other pack varieties – nice gauge and chew. The broth has a strong chicken taste and a salty one too. Everything I expected from a chicken instant noodle, although the nicer noodle pushes it up a bit. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 076186000028.
