What is this? Where does it come from? These are all good questions about these Panda Signature products sent by a guy named Daniel from Montana (thanks again!). After looking all over the packaging and just finding they’re distributed here in the United States by Albany Farms, I noticed something. The HALAL stamp. It’s under the authority that gives out HALAL certifications in… Malaysia!
But that doesn’t answer the question – why did they replace Maruchan in this guy’s Walmart? Test market? Supply chain issues? Maybe Maruchan bought an overseas company to produce these for them? Who knows but I’m very interested in this. Let’s check ’em out!
UPDATE 5/7/2021 – Okay, so it’s established now that although some have a HALAL stamp from Malaysia, they’re from China. What’s crazy is the reactionary comments in the video below on YouTube. I swear, I’ve only had one other video which has received so many comments. What’s more, they’re all but maybe 2 or 3 negative. Since I got these samples, I’ve reviewed a slew and the episodes of Instant Noodle Recipe Time are done – so look at the very bottom of this post and I’ll provide you with most of them.
