#4294: A Taste Of Thai Peanut Noodles - United States

As I’ve mentioned on Instant Noodle Recipe Time episodes lately, I’m running incredibly low on instant noodles to review. Found this one at the local Safeway grocery store today. Mind you, today is May 18th, 2022 and this will be probably posting in late September or early October. Why is that? Well, I do three reviews a day – and done that most days in the last month or so, so I’m not only ahead, I’m way ahead. Today I posted review #4153 – this is review #4294, so that’s 139 reviews ahead – possibly the farthest ahead I’ve been ever. I’ve really found a groove and I’m loathe to mess with it. I get up early, get the kids ready for the day, my wife heads to work, and between 715 and 8am, I do three reviews. After I get my son on the bus around 9am, I then come back and do up the videos and images and save my review. Then I get my daughter on the bus a bit later and go out walking ten miles, get home about a half hour before I have to go pick my daughter up from the bus, then start taking pics of the varieties I’ll be reviewing the next morning. It really works out great! But yeah – I’ve run through a hoard of varieties in the past month or so. This one sounded interesting. I also noticed today that the categories drop-down that has been on the website forever wasn’t there anymore, so I fixed that.

You might wonder what the significance of May 18th is and why I’m rambling? Well, when I was five years old in 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted. I lived at home with my parents in Anacortes, Washington – about 90 minutes or so north of Seattle. I was sitting on the sofa watching some kids show called Boomerang. All of a sudden, I heard a boom, then another boom – I thought my mom had fallen down the stairs, but it was Mount St. Helens blast ricocheting off the islands nearby! According to Google, that’s 235 miles away. What ensued was a lot of little volcanic ash souvenirs for multiple years afterwards – ashtrays, tree ornaments, knick knacks and so on. Pretty crazy. But anyways, it’s time to cook up some noodles – they sound interesting and hope they’re good! Let’s give this one a try.

Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add rice noodle and all sachets except for peanuts  to a pot with 1 cup boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Finally, garnish with peanuts and enjoy!

The rice noodle package.

A sauce base sachet.

A large sachet of coconut milk powder.

A sachet of crushed peanuts.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added sesame seed and basil. The rice noodle came out very well with the pot method. The flavor was intense – sweet, coconut, and peanut were in very high amounts. Included crushed peanut added an excellent texture throughout. Very impressed. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070650800756.
