Blount Fine Foods Meet The Manufacturer #2597: Blount Chicken Ramen Bowl - United States - The Ramen Rater

Here’s the second and final product of this Meet The Manufacturer review series of Blount Fine Foods products.

Meet The Manufacturer #2585: Blount Thai Inspired Coconut Chicken & Noodle Bowl

Blount Fine Foods Meet The Manufacturer #2596: Blount Thai Inspired Coconut Chicken & Noodle Bowl - United States - The Ramen Rater

I’ve reviewed many fresh varieties in the past and this is a new variety from a brand I’ve never reviewed any products from before! What’s more, it’s a company in the United States.

#2559: Jackpot Teriyaki - Beef Ramen - Tulalip - Washington - The Ramen Rater - ramyun korea korean

On June 22nd, we met my sister up in Tulalip, Washington to check out the outlet mall. It’s kind of a misnomer; you think outlet mall, you think cheap prices, right?

Ugh. ...see full post
