Yesterday, I needed a new pair of pants. I’m not into ultra fashionable stuff – like paying $100 for jeans, so we went to Walmart. Walmart is an interesting place – you’ll see some interesting people there – especially at the one in Lynnwood, Washington. When we got out of the car, there was the sound of some guy at the other side of the parking lot screaming obscenities at someone or some thing – unsure. But that was entertaining. In the store, we g ot to see a lady with a very small dog barking at everyone and every thing ( apparently, if you have an ’emotional support’ dog you can bring it with you, but this dog needed emotional support and was definitely not providing it for anyone). I did get some new pants, and they were extremely cheap. $16 for pants. It’s been a while since we’ve been to Walmart so I thought a trip down the domestic instant noodle aisle might be in order. Surprisingly, they had a very small amount of them, however they did have this pack. Creamy Chicken has been one of my absolute favorites for a very, very long time. I am curious to see whether or not they’ve changed the recipe as that seems to be a popular thing to do in the US instant noodle market right now. Let’s crack open this new package design and give it a try!
Maruchan Ramen Noodle Soup Creamy Chicken Flavor – United States
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, add noodle block to 2 cups boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents and stir for one minute. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dry base sachet.
A light powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Sald Cosmo mung bean sprouts, egg and shichimi togarashi. The noodles for this particular variety are just out of this world perfect. They have a decent and very standard gauge and suck up just enough broth. The broth has a very easy going creamy chicken taste, creaminess thanks to non-dairy creamer. Definitely my all-time favorite of the US Maruchan pillow pack range. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789002519.
After years of seeing nothing, Maruchan has started showing TV commercials. I’ve seen them on CNN and MSNBC in the past year.
