#3082: Mivina Banana Flavor Instant Noodles – Ukraine

#3082: Mivina Banana Flavor Instant Noodles - Ukraine

A big thank you to Artur, a friend of The Ramen Rater! This is the very first dessert-style instant noodle I’ve ever tried. Ever! Not only that, It’s fromthe Ukraine! I’ve seen dessert yakisoba before in chocolate as well as strawberry shortcake flavor, and I expected those would be what I would eventually get to try. But this was way out of nowhere. Thank you again! Let’s give it a try! It’s banana time!

Smells like banana taffy!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added banana, plain M&Ms, and Kraft crunchy peanut butter. The ramen noodles were still with a bit of texture, but they were very soft. The broth tasted like banana milk and was nice and hearty due to being made with milk. Honestly, this was pretty good! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 7613036248822.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg and spring onion. The noodles had a very interesting character to them – like the Roni in Rice-A-Roni and I like them a lot. The broth had a very good chicken flavor, although I really couldn’t detect one iota of spiciness. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4820048610070.

This pack comes by way of Artur  P. and his kids Vincent and Xavier of Illinois – thank you again! This is the first Ukrainian instant noodle I’ve ever reviewed! I know there are a lot of different varieties from Ukraine but just like other European varieties, they’re very hard to come by for me. Let’s open this spicy chicken pack up and have a look inside this РОЛЛТОН (Rollton) variety!

Sunflower oil.

Finished (click to enlarge). To be honest, I found this one hard to put down. The noodles are light and soft with a softer than normal chew, however they’re not mushy. The broth was very nice here – while I did not detect a spicy kind of flavor whatsoever, it has a strong comfort food chicken kind of taste I really liked. Pair that with a little oil and everything was really good. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4820179250077.
