Here’s the next to last of the Annie Chun’s varieties they were kind enough to send for Meet The Manufacturer. Spicy Chicken Ramen sounds awesome! Let’s check it out.

Back of the package (click image to enlarge).

The fresh ramen packet.

The liquid soup base.

Has a spicy scent!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added bell peppers, onions and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are nice and fresh with good firmness – good stuff. The broth is indeed spicy and has a rich and deep flavor I found very enjoyable. This is a good one! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 765667140109 – get it here.

#969: Meet The Manufacturer: Annie Chun’s Soup Bowl Vietnamese Pho

Here we go with some more Annie Chun’s product! This one’s Vietnamese Pho, a flavor I have enjoyed dining out and dining in. Let’s see how this version of Pho does!

Here’s the back and side panel details (click image to enlarge).

The noodle pack.

Liquid soup base.

Has a nice beef scent.

Another one of these seasoning blocks!

I am so fascinated by these things. The re hydrate so nicely.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some Apinya Thai Chilli Sauce. The noodles are nice – good chew and very fresh. I found them interesting though as they’re wheat noodles instead of the traditional rice noodles one would find in pho. The broth is really quite good! Nice beef taste and sweet basil and other spices are there – very good! The seasoning block unleashed a lot of nice veggies! All in all, I’m quite enthused! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#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.

#967: Meet The Manufacturer: Annie Chun’s Soup Bowl Korean Kimchi

Here’s something interesting – a kimchi fresh udon bowl made in the US! Let’s give it a look!

Here’s detail from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge).

Under the cardboard we find this little plastic box. Not at all flimsy either.

Inside, we find a few things. First, a pack or fresh udon.

Next, a packet of liquid soup base.

A thick liquid.

My favorite! I just love packets full of 1.2.8.6.D! I wonder what this number means…

Actually, I do love these! This is a seasoning block. Basically its freeze dried seasoning and veggies in a nice little square. They spring back to life and are really great from the ones I’ve had so far.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, odeng (Korean fish cake) and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are very good – thick fresh udon. The broth delivers the kimchi flavor very nicely; spicy and tangy. The seasoning block gives some nice kimchi too. This is an awesome kimchi udon with great authentic flavor  – 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 765667100400 – get it here.
