Re-Review: Paldo Kokomen Spicy Chicken Flavor King Cup

Here’s the original review. It’s cold today so I thought it sounded good. I figure I should mention – there will be some new reviews very soon! I am working on a huge project that’s been taking so much time. A hint – it has to do with upgrading this blog! I’ve been editing every post and image. A lot of work let me tell you! It will definitely be worth it in the end!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added kamaboko, stir fry vegetables, an egg, sweet onion and processed cheese. Awesome – just as good as last time – 4.75 out of 4.0 stars! UPC bar code 648436100705 .

#934: Nongshim Jinjja Jinjja Flamin’ Hot & Nutty Noodle Soup

I got a couple of these family packs sent as samples from Nongshim America the other day…

I’ve had tons of the version that they sell in Korea, but now they’re making it in the United States – specifically in Rancho Cucamonga, California! Today I’ll give this stuff a try and see if it’s as good as what I’ve tried from Korea.

The noodle block.

The powder seasoning packet.

Spicy powder!

Nutty seasoning!

Tastes like peanuts and has black sesame seeds in there.

The veggie packet.

Here are all the seasonings hanging out together.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some sweet onion. The noodles are great – plentiful and of a nice gauge. The slurp up just the right amount of broth and arrive at a very good consistency and chew. The broth is great – the peanut and spicy elements all combine to make a really fiery as well as hearty combination that is quite enjoyable. The veggies are plentiful and there’s a nice variety of them. This stuff is excellent, just like its Korean counterpart. Nice to see that everyone will get to try this stuff in the USA! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – wonderful stuff! UPC bar code 031146019526.

Here’s the Korean TV commercial for Jinjja Jinjja. These guys are known as Cultwo.

Here’s some of their Korea radio show.

Samples From Nongshim America!

Hey – a package from Nongshim America – but what’s inside?

This just came out for sale in the USA and I can’t wait to try it! If it’s the same as what they make in Korea (see review), then it’s some serious 5.0/5.0 star stuff. Made for sale here in California! Awesome! Thanks to Ray A. and Hanna C. over at NSA! Might do this review later today!

#933: Paldo Kokomen Cup

Hey look! The Kokomen cup! Been waiting to try this one with some leftover Thanksgiving turkey!

The information panels (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block awaits!

The seasoning powder.

The seasoning powder. Spicy jalapeno and chicken yeeouch!

Here’s a little bit of thre veggies and the chicken.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added an egg with French’s French Fried Onions on top, turkey, Cavender’s Greek Seasoning and a little Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are nice and light in this version – very thin and tasty. I have found this style of noodle to be a little lacking before in cups, but I have to say that the noodle in combination with the broth is absolutely delightful. I must say that the Kokomen broth is truly one of my favorites on the market; it’s got that comfort chicken flavor kicked up with jalapeno – delicious! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 648436100712

Angry Kokomen training camp! Can’t wait to get my hands on some of this stuff!

Ahhh look at all of the powder – should be hot’n’spicy!

A nice little melange.

Finished (click image to enlarge).  Added sweet onion, some processed cheese, fresh Thanksgiving turkey, French’s French Fried Onions, a hard boiled egg and Krazy Mixed Up Salt. The noodles are great – nice and plump and plentiful. The broth has a great flavor – a strong spiciness too. Excellent red broth! The veggies are very nice too – good amount of garlic in there! Great stuff! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 648436100729 – get it here.

#928: Kamfen Dried-Mix Noodles Artificial Spicy Pork Flavored

Here’s one I got the other day at 99 Ranch Market. Was hoping they had a few more varieties, but they had two – two closer to the #1000th review! I’m not going to stop, just can’t wait to hit it! I think this one would win the prize for interesting use of upper and lower case characters.

Here’s a scan of the bottom (click to enlarge).

Here are the export stickers (click to enlarge).

Here are the instructions on how to make this (click to enlarge). Going to add the mustard stem at the end as they’re not dehydrated.

An included fork!

The noodles look interesting enough.

Sauce eh?

A paste.

Hey – its mustard stem!

Yeah these don’t look dehydrated – I think I’ll add them at the end.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added some sweet onions, Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake, ham and Krazy Mixed Up Salt. The noodles are kind of like slightly underdone egg noodles, but I don’t think they are at all. Plus, they’re really good – broad and thin. The flavor is quite nice – a little spicy and a nice Chinese pork flavor. The mustard stem goes with it quite well. I like this stuff – 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 6920363402218 .

#927: Paldo Kokomen Spicy Chicken Flavor King Cup

Here’s some more Kokomen – this is the one sold in the USA! It’s a really rainy day today and some spicy chicken noodles sound really tasty! Let’s hit it!

Ahhh – Jalapeno and chicken powder! Smells great!

Those little white strips? Dehydrated chicken!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sliced turkey breast (how fitting for this week), sweet onion, Krazy Mixed Up Salt and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are really good, although I think the pack variety’s offering is a little better. The broth is wonderful – a nice jalapeno chicken flavor. The veggies are nice and the little bits of chicken are neat to see. I love this stuff – jalapeno chicken noodle soup is right up my alley! Just like the Kko Kko Myun King Cup from Korea, I give it 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 648436100705 .

Re-Review: Paldo Bowl Noodle Soup Spicy Artificial Chicken Flavor

Been a while since I reviewed this one! Had it for #346 (check out the original review). I’m hungry – let’s go.

Side panels (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

One packet of seasoning.

Bright red powder!

Here’s just a little of the veggies from the bottom of the bowl.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added some stir fry veggies, some baked chicken with Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning, a fried egg with Krazy Mixed Up Salt and some kizami shoga (pickled ginger). The noodles  are nice – light and buttery with a nice width. The broth is interesting; it is spicy but not burn your face off spicy and has a nice chicken flavor with some hints of cumin. I like it – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 648436100255 – get it here.

#921: Ottogi Jjajang Bokki

Currently, I have only four new varieties in my noodle hamper and this in one of them. The ‘jjajang’ is a black bean and noodle dish which is brothless. Every Korean brand seems to have their own variation – here’s Ottogi’s bowl version.

Complete with drain spouts!

Here are the side panels (click to enlarge).

The powder seasoning.

Tons of it!

Veggies!

Nice little mixture.

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles are pretty good – plenty of them and a decent consistency. The jjajang flavor is very nice – all the noodles are enrobed in a tasty black bean sauce. The Veggies could’ve been a little more plentiful. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code  645175571438 .

Re-Review: Paldo Lobster Taste King Noodle

Last night, Obama got re-elected as the President, and here in Washington state, same-sex marriage was approved – as was the recreational use of marijuana. Quite an evening! Anyways, was fun watching the political process wind up and come to a close for this cycle. Now, on to the urgent task of noodle reviewing!  The last time I reviewed this one was back in February of ’11 and was #287 (link). I forgot how awesome the picture on this one – I love how it says ‘serving suggestion.’ It makes me think that this is one enormous king of the lobsters that wants you to serve it these self-flavored noodles! Roarrr!!! On a side note, if you look at the lower right hand side of the cup, you can see it says “Chitosan Oligosaccaride 2 mg.” What the heck is that?!?! What I got out of this Wikipedia article is that this is something that comes from the exoskeletons of crustaceans. It got me thinking – Chitosan… ChitoSlim? I remember commercials for ChitoSlim, a weight lossupplement. I found it and lo and behold it contains 1000 mg of Chitosan. I figure it’s basically like a super-fiber. Anyways, let’s continue.

The side panels (click to enlarge). Enjoy them – this took awhile!

The noodle block.

The seasoning packet.

Whoa – that’s a lot of red powder! Spicy red powder!

Here’s just a few bits from the mix at the bottom of the cup. Kamaboko and seaweed.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onions, two scrambled eggs with Tabasco Jalapeno sauce and topped with processed cheese and a little Krazy Mixed Up Salt, Texas Pete hot sauce and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are nice – not mushy, but they kind of come together when chewed. Kind of hard to explain; not a negative either. The broth is nice – tasty and a little spicy. The little bit of veggies and kamaboko were good too. I liked it! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 648436100279 – get it here.

Awesome Paldo TV ad for Bibimmen.
