#2817: Liangchengmei 30S” Hot Bird Noodle

#2906: Liangchengmei 30S" Hot Bird Noodle

Here’s one my wife spied at FoodyWorld supermarket up in Richmond BC! Wow – what a find, eh? This one’s from China and it has some kind of corrupted chicken who’s into metal wearing a leather jacket with spikes (punk rock chicken?) – I quite honestly must say that this is most likely one of the most interesting instant noodle product packaging ideas ever. Little sayings here and there connote a seedy underbelly – ‘devil’s hotness,’ ‘screaming soul,’ and finally ’30SecondsOpen the hot fantasy life.’ I dunno – does it really get any weirder than this? Maybe? I really hope so – I like weird! Well, let’s check this one out – looks hot…

Detail of the box (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add the noodles to a pot of boiling water and soak for 30 seconds. Drain. Add in liquid base and stir in. Finally, garnish with dry sachet contents and enjoy! Note – I thought it took longer – I also thought it was 30 inches, but after thinking about it seconds makes sense. Anyways.

Finished (click to enlarge). Well, well, well,. The noodles are great – thick, nice chew and great quantity. The flavor is pretty spot on with another noodle with a chicken that’s exceedingly spicy. Heat level? Oh yeah – this isn’t no mamby pamby stuff – it’s mean. Garnish is worthy. Very happy this was discovered and enjoyed it! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6928988766661.

#1926: Nissin Bowl Noodles Hot & Spicy Chicken Flavor Less Sodium Ramen Noodle Soup

Here’s a new one from Nissin – a lower sodium version of their Hot & Spicy chicken bowl! Not many lower sodium varieties cross my desk usually – this one is 30% lower than the regular Hot & spicy chicken bowl. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, remove lid and add in non-liquid sachets. Add room temperature water to fill line and microwave (1000W) for 3 minutes. Let sit for 1 additional minute in the microwave. Stir and enjoy!

The soup base sachet.

Has a nice zesty scent.

The vegetable sachet.

Quite a decent quantity and nice mixture.

The ‘Soup Booster’ sachet.

A seasoned oil with a spicy scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, baked chicken and hard boiled egg. The noodles come out of the microwave piping hot and soft – nicely so. The broth has a very good flavor despite it being a lower sodium variety. The included veggies hydrated nicely. The Soup Booster’s oiliness gives the broth a good thickness. Kind of like a Mexican instant noodle bowl. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662096413.
