#2962: Canton Instant Noodles Chicken Curry Flavour

#2962: Canton Instant Noodles Chicken Curry Flavour

Okay – guess where I got these? Yeah – Canada. At the Real Canadian Superstore. These are made in Bangladesh. So, are they a Bangladesh product, or something geared this way for Canada. This is always a tricky thing for me to figure out and ultimately, I have to just pick. The pack mentions that it’s a product of Bangladesh and has many languages, however the Nutrition Facts are designed for Canada – in English and French. So I’m going to go with this is an export product and labeled just for Canada, but it’s not made in Canada. One thing also to note is the absence of Canadian mentions – made by so-and-so for insert Canadian company here. Usually, this would make it Bangladesh, but then there’s the bar code – it’s a 12 instead of 13 digits. Leaning Canadian again. But then if you look at the commercial at the bottom, this package is in English instead of the local language. I’m slapping a Bangladesh label on it. Let’s check it out.

A light powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, chicken, hard boiled egg, fried onion, and grape tomatoes. The noodles sucked up all the broth and ended up with a decent texture to them – just about right. The taste was more chicken and less curry, but it was pretty tasty. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 841165107650.
