#410: Lucky Me! Instant Bulalo (Bone Marrow Soup) Artificial Beef Flavor Instant Noodles

It’s been sitting in my big ramen box for quite a while now and been contemplating trying this one as of late. Got an email this morning from someone who read the article in the Herald about this site and this stuff was mentioned, so I thought no time like the present. Lucky me!

A couple of packets – powder on the left, strange little clove-like things and veggies on the right.

So this one is a ‘no cook’ variety, however I find that silly since it does cook just like a cup noodle. So you put the noodle block and seasonings in the bowl and add 400cc (about 2 cups) of water. Then you cover it. I’m sorry, but to me, boiling water is cooking; you’re making hot water soup right?

So I covered the bowl with the boiling water in it with the Sons of Champlin album and put a Pepsi 2 liter on top so the album might warp a little and the noodles would get their full coverage.

I have a bowl of Lucky Me! noodles a while back – Sotanghon I believe, and they came with ‘free crackers.’ This was a good deal and so I thought I’d try this one with some ‘paid for’ crackers. So there are two crushed and neatly arranged Keebler Club Butter Garlic crackers there. Also in the middle underneath the crackers is a single fried egg – it has a little pepper and a little Jane’s Crazy Mixed Up Salt.

The noodles are very good – they almost remind me of the noodles one would find in Campbell’s Beef Noodle Soup. The broth is nice and tasty. The veggies and little fake meatball thingies are really strange but fun. The whole thing ties togethe to make a tasty meal. I liked this quite a bit. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

Sweet – original commercials rock!

This stuff looks really tasty! Easy to cook too.

#305: Lucky Me! Supreme Special Beef Carne de Vaca Instant Mami Noodles With Free Crackers

So I’ve reviewed another Supreme with the free crackers before. This time it’s special beef flavor! The tops are all the same on this line it appears…

So here’s the ‘front’ I suppose. I found it interesting that they put a sticker over something so I peeled it off. It looks like they covered up the Filipino text with Spanish for sale in the US; which seems strange since there are a lot of folks from the Philippines here!

Drove my Chevy to the levee and then ate a bowl noodle… Very interesting side image…

So they seem hell bent on letting you know ‘hey, these crackers are free – gratis – and you will like them!’ Powder and some kind of seasoned oil on the right and a veggie pack on the left.

Waiting for a bath…

#230: Lucky Me! Supreme Instant Mami Noodles with Free Crackers Artificial Chicken Flavor

Enjoy. Do it enjoy.

So here’s some chicken flavor bowl noodles hmm? Free crackers…

Base powder, some ‘I’m not sure’ and crackers…

Sitting on the instant noodles…

So yeah – crackers? Interesting that in the last couple reviews I’ve tried some new things – last it was a Koka that had coconut in it – weird…

Click image to enlarge. Not bad at all – nothing super special though. Tasted like chicken ramen but a little more like a noodle soup kind of thing going on here. The crackers tasted good too. After a few bites of it and a try of the crackers, I left it for my 5 year old boy to devour – which he did quickly. I’m giving it a 3.75 out of 5.0 stars – I like it, the kid likes it, we’re good here capiche?
