Okay so this one is interesting to me. First, I thought the name Cup Noodles was a Nissin thing? But then I thought Jinmailang was owned by Nissin, but then not anymore? I should note Jinmailang is most definitely a Chinese company, but it’s pretty obvious from the labeling that this is specifically for the United States. Interesting. Also, the nutrition facts seem a little interesting to me. It’s a pretty big cup – is everything actually doubled in reality? Unsure. Either way, I found this at Fred Meyer, a chain of grocery stores in Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho. Was surprised to see this brand there! Anyways, I’ve found a couple varieties there recently I’ve not seen elsewhere. Curious. Let’s check this one out!

I think although it says high heat this might fare better at 800W rather than the standard of 1000W most microwaves in the US run at. The noodle returned very weak, and furthermore the broth was a bit on the bland side. It tasted good, just could have used more flavor. It’s a kind of braised beef taste with a little nudge of Sichuan pepper. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6921555527238.
