I know a lot of people are really into Trader Joe’s. What I’ve seen is that they find brands and products they think would be good with their packaging and then get the company that makes it to do a private label for them and sells it under their name. I think that’s what it looks like here. In fact, maybe these should be known not as Trader Joe’s but Trader Mike’s – as everything looks about the same as this one. Yup – I’m pretty sure these are made by Mike’s Mighty Good. Anyways, let’s have a look and give it a try!

Okay so I’ve never seen a noodle block like this ever before – except in Mike’s Mighty Good products. The six minutes steeping time makes this one a dead ringer for sure – it’s a private label.
The soup base sachet.
A fluffy powder.
An oil sachet.
Has a sesame scent.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, and cheese. The noodles were prertty good but did have a peculiar tooth to them. The broth was creamy which was unexpected. I really expected something very bland here but it was very tasty. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 00604109.
Watch me cook this one up on an episode of Instant Noodle Recipe Time!
