#1246: Annie Chun’s Ramen House Chicken Vegetable Flavored Ramen

Here’s one of the new varieties from Annie Chun’s that they sent! It’s 22 degrees outside – very cold! This looks appropriate for such a cold day – let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free and a lot of natural ingredients. Lower calorie/fat as well. To prepare, cook noodles in 1 1/2 cups water for 1 minute. Drain water and boil another pot of water, 1 cup this time. Add the liquid sachet. Put the cooked noodles in a bowl and then add the broth.

The fresh noodles.

Liquid soup base sachet.

Has a nice chicken vegetable scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken, broccoli, big ugly carrot, leeks, sweet onion and green onion. The noodles are reminiscent in texture of South Korean fresj udon cups – then again the noodles in those generally come in the same package. Yet these are much thinner than udon and have a slightly bouncy chew and good texture. The broth has a slightly sweet and full vegetable flavor which goes well with the noodle. The interaction between noodle and broth leaves me with a fresh and premium feel. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 765667140505.

#968: Meet The Manufacturer: Annie Chun’s Noodle Express Teriyaki

Here’s another of the Noodle Express line – teriyaki! Teriyaki is one of my favorite foods – nothing like a to go box for lunch. Let’s see how this one from Annie Chun’s stacks up.

The cardboard outer packaging (click image to enlarge).

After you remove the cardboard, this is underneath.

Just like the earlier Noodle Express box, there are three items inside. First, the noodle pack.

The soup base – liquid.

The back of the packet is transparent so you can see how much is in there.

The dry vegetables packet.

Looks like a nice little melange.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onions, thin sliced turkey breast, stir fry veggies and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are nice and springy and fresh. The flavor was not my favorite, however. The teriyaki has a strong vinegar flavor to it which I imagine is used as a natural preservative. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#526: Annie Chun’s All Natural Asian Cuisine Ramen House Soy Ginger Ramen

Well here we go with some domesticated ramen. This is a fresh pack by a supermarket available brand.

The noodles look nice and inviting – nice color. The packet is festive in its purpleness.

So the purple packet contains the purple packet contents. This looks to be a liquid soup base. I think the instructions were a little weird; you boil the noodles for a minute and then drain them. Next, rinse the pot and add one cup of water and the sauce, then add to the noodles.

Click image to enlarge. Here we are. The noodles are very weak; they practically fell apart and were of a mushy consistency – was almost exactly like soggy spaghetti; an insult. Then the broth was very very light flavored. This was some of the most boring noodles I’ve ever had – I would say a pack of Nissin Top Ramen Chicken flavor was much more of an adventure than these. 1.50 out of 5.0 stars. You can get it at many grocery stores or here.

#476: Annie Chun’s All Natural Asian Cuisine Teriyaki Noodle Bowl

My sister got me this one and kindly brought it to me to check out – thank you! So I’ve never tried this brand before, so I guess we’ll have to see how it goes.

Two packets – veggies and teriyaki sauce. One thing – these packets are incredibly large compared to most of the packets I’ve seen in the past.

Here’s the veggie pack resting atop the fresh noodles. What you do is you put the noodles and veggies in the bowl and add a cup of water. Microwave for 90 seconds and then drain off the excess water. After that, put the teriyaki sauce in and stir it up.

Click image to enlarge. I added nothing to this product. Well, I appreciate the hookup sis, but man this stuff is below par! I was excited – the noodles are nice and fresh and the veggies were good looking – the front mentioned spinach and tofu, although I enjoyed the sesame seeds. The thing is that the teriyaki sauce was not very good – very lemony and acidic. I disliked it in the extreme and I feel it absolutely ruined everything. I’m bummed; a better sauce would’ve made this a four star noodle bowl, and sadly it will receive a 1.75 out of 5.0 star score from me. Truly disappointing, but maybe you like it. Find it here.
