Alright so here we have a prototype. I love prototypes; I feel so honored and humbled that companies would let me try a product before it goes on the market. This one’s a little different – here’s why. It’s 20 calories. For the pack. That’s it. Konjac noodles – these things are like eating food on the holodeck on Star Trek (note – for the ultra nerdy out there who do know that holodeck food is actually replicator food – yeah I know that too – but if the food was holographic – that’s what I’m getting at). At this point they have shared with me their pending Kickstarter campaign but it will be live soon and I’m guessing by the time this posts. Anyways, let’s see how good 20 calorie ramen can be!

Detail of the back (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, drain and rinse noodles. Add noodles and sachet contents to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Konjac noodles in a wet pouch.
A sachet of light colored powder.
A sachet of dry powder that I’m guessing is the spicy component.
A sachet of the vegetables.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, tamago, narutomaki, kizami nori, negi, boiled beef, and sesame seed. The noodle is definitely konjac – has a chewiness and a bounce that only konjac has. The trick is making the gauge not too thick that it’s like chewing rubber and these do very well. Broth tastes like a spicy South Korean noodle that’s very popular. All in all, a big win at 20 calories per pack. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. No bar code.
