Another one from the Real Canadian SuperStore! Man, I just ran my knee into a metal bar that supports my desk. That really hurt. I’ve been doing a lot of walking yesterday – on my birthday last week I did 18,000+ steps – yesterday I did over 15,000. I’m knee deep into trying to walk as much as possible. I think by the time this post comes out I’ll have lost a lot more weight. I started in November, 2018. I was wearing size 48 pants – yeah… It’s March and I’m down to 42, so we shall see where I’m at then… Been trying to stick around 1,200 calories a day too… I’m going to bake some chicken to go with this one. I like chicken. Let’s look at this one.
Rooster Chili Chicken Flavour Noodle Soup – Canada
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add 280ml boiling water and sachet contents. Cover for 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, chicken baked with Neo~Essence Pepper Salt & NuTek Salt For Life, spring onion, and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Noodles are pretty good – nice gauge and hydrated well – not spongy. The broth has a satisfying chili flavor to it – not extremely spicy by any stretch. Works well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 061483036801.
Made for Loblaw’s Canada, these Rooster varieties have been surprisingly good. In fact, despite having a very plain and generic look to them, they’ve all been really quite good. Will this bowl continue on in this way? Let’s find out!
Rooster Hot & Spicy Flavour Noodle Soup – Canada
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add sachet content and 350ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, soft egg, baked chicken with Neo-Essence pepper salt and NuTek Salt for Life, coriander, Cholula Original hot sauce, and black sesame seeds. Sadly, the noodles just didn’t hydrate enough in the alotted time, leaving them spongy. However the broth was really great. Five minutes would have dome this one much better. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 061483036641.
Here’s one of the many varieties I still have from Rooster, a range made in China for Canada’s Loblaw’s company. Loblaw’s owns The Real Canadian SuperStore, and that’s where I found these. Just think of Walmart, but slightly different and Canadian owned – not American. Let’s check this one out – the others in this range have been surprisingly good despite the very plain look to them.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, baked chicken with NuTek Salt For Life, coriander and fried onion. Noodles were soft and definitely done well after a 3 minute sit in the boiling water. They have a kind of flatness to them and work well with the broth. Flavor of the broth is a kind of chicken and cumin with a tinge of spiciness and a tastiness I quite enjoyed. Bits of corn here and there. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 061483036627.
Oh – Canada! How you doin’? So we went up to Canada as we usually do about once a month and we’d been seeing the place called ‘The Real Canadian Super Store’ every time but never visited. So it’s part of Loblaw’s, a mega supermarket group in Canada – the have lots of different stores up there under different names like T&T Supermarket, Loblaw’s, – I think London Drug? Anyways, yeah. This store was like a mega Walmart – but the difference is that it’s real and it’s Canadian. Great noodle aisle – lots of things I’ve not seen elsewhere. Let’s give this one a try – it’s made in China for the Canadian company.
Rooster Chili Seafood Flavour Noodle Soup – Canada
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add noodles to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
Prawn flavor eh?
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, shrimp, narutomaki, carved squid and red pepper flakes. The noodles were decent – light and fluffy to a degree and very soft on the tooth. The broth has this almost chili cheese kind of thing to it. Lots of cumin. A thought of seafood it in there – kind of like the buttery taste seafood varieties often had. Worked surprisingly well – not bad! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 061483038672.
Here’s another one we found at the Real Canadian Superstore in Richmond, BC. The last one was found in the more domestic area while this one was found with the more Asian food varieties. They have tons of this Rooster branded stuff in bowls, packs, cups – singles, multi packs and cases. It’s pretty impressive. they did also have a nice selection of other things. Cool store! Let’s check this kimchee variety out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, processed cheese, and beef for Korean BBQ. The noodle is thin and flat. It came out quite well – soft and in the comfort realm. The broth has a slightly piquant kind of taste with a moderate saltiness. Didn’t expect I’d like this as much as I did. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 061483036658.
