#1303: Western Family Instant Noodles In A Cup Chicken Flavour

Here’s another one my wife for me on my trip to Canada on my birthday last year! Gonna let the kiddo try this one out – he likes chicken flavor anything. Let’s check it out!

Here are the side panels from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

The cup!

Detail of the lid (click image to enlarge). To prepare, put sachet contents in cup and add boiling water to line. Cover and steep for 3 minutes. Stir and eat.

Here’s the noodle block.

Soup base sachet.

They not only put soup base powder in but some veggies too.

Andy really loved this sarsaparilla – I on the other hand think it tastes like cough medicine! It’s funny the things he enjoys and dislikes; I didn’t expect him to be such a big fan of fish cake. I did kind of think he’d like spicy foods, but spicy is a big no for him.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added cheese, carrot, kamaboko and chikwara. The noodles were alright but not great. They seemed stiff and missing a little love. The broth had a somewhat chicken-like flavor which was nice. Unfortunately, the vegetables hydrated sub-par. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 062639297138.

#1169 Mr. Noodles Noodles In A Cup Beef Simulated Flavour

Here’s another from my Canadian birthday trip! Thanks again, Kit! This one’s for my son Andy (check out his blog at www.andyslegostuff.com). Usually he goes for the chicken varieties, but beef is what he’s getting today! Let’s check it out!

Here’s detail from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.

Here’s the cup itself.

Vegetables and seasoning inside.

Andy’s a fan of noodles, but never likes broth. Also, any mention of spiciness has him running as well. Usually I get a little resistance when mentioning adding lots of veggies and meat, but he was open to it this time. Had a nice thunderstorm roll through after this and hung out on the balcony watching for flashes and listening for rumbles…

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added peas, carrots and beef. The noodles were pretty sad – very mushy and had a weird flavor. The broth is lackluster, although has a nice color to it. The veggies are only so-so. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491002352.
