#3952: Thai Chef Artificial Duck Flavour - Thailand

It used to be that I would shy away for the odd duck flavored instant noodle that would cross my desk, however these days I see them and a smile crossed my aging face. Duck.

I so wish I could just go to the deli and say ‘yeah, can I have 50 grams of duck?’ Here in the US, nobody sells duck.
