I must admit, I was surprised. I really think if I was at a store and a lady walked up and I held this product and said ‘I have a pink rocket for you,’ I would most likely get slapped pretty hard. Regardless of the terminology here, I have to say that this one sounds incredibly good. I’m a huge fan of rabokki – that’s a combination of ramyun noodles and tteokbokki, which are thin rice cake tubes. This one’s intermixing with a carbonara flavor – that all sounds really quite good! Definitely excited to try this one – we found it in Seattle at a place called M2M Mart. It’s made in South Korea for the US market. Well, let’s give it a try!
Pink Rocket ‘For The Lovely Girls’ Carbonara Rabokki – United States
A distributor’s label (click to enlarge).
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add everything to the cup and fill to line with water. Loosely put lid on and microwave for 3 minutes 30 seconds – 800 watts should be right. Finally, stir for 15 seconds and enjoy!

A package of ramyun.
A package of tteokbokki.
A large sachet of sauce base.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard salami, soft egg, scallion, and sesame seed. This one was quite good – a soft noodle with a perfectly cooked tteokbokki. The flavor was a creamy affair – don’t know about exactly emulating carbonara, but the approxmation did the job. Hard to put down. Looking forward to see what else the pink rocket varieties have to offer. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars EAN bar code 8809054402400.
