It’s been a rough go for brands from the US I’ve not reviewed a ton of before. It really surprises me how many zero star scores I’ve given lately. I have a feeling (and hope) this one’s different. See where it says CJ Foods next to the Annie Chun’s logo? That’s a Korean company. If they’re making this line, I would think that they could make a great spicy Korean ramen. Then again I see corn is an ingredient which is very odd. Ah well – come on let’s give it a go!
Annie Chun’s Korean Style Spicy Ramen Soup Bowl – United States
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Says it is Vegan friendly but check for yourself. To prepare, add in sachet contents and fill to ‘soup only’ line with room temperature water. Microwave for 2 minutes with the lid on loosely. Finally stir and enjoy!
A pouch of fresh noodle.
A liquid soup base.
A sachet of vegetables.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and sesame seed. The noodle is very, very soft, but done pretty well. The broth wasn’t half bad. This is supposed to be a Korean spicy ramen, and it sort of gets there. It is kind of like a vegetable beef condensed soup flavor with a smattering of spiciness. The inclusion of carrot and corn seemed a little haphazard. Better than others, yet still kind of confusing; seems like they tried a little harder, but just fell far short.. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.
