#3746: Vifon Asian Style Instant Noodles With Crab Paste - Vietnam

Here’s one that was sent in by reader James from Lakeside, CA! Thanks! He’s sent quite a few neat varieties over the past year and this follows suit. It contains a retort pouch, kind of the high bar when it comes to instants as it’s like a flexible can with fish or meat in there which makes everything better.

#1422: Nissin Pan Asian Kitchen Spicy Szechuan Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodles

Hey here are some noodle made here in the USA! Interesting – spicy Szechuan… I’m curious how spicy it will be. I’ve had many different takes on Szechuan before – I’m hoping this one is good as usually I don’t tend to like Szechuan variants so much.
