#837: Nissin Top Ramen Cucharealo Home-Style Picante Chicken Flavor

Here’s one of the new one Nissin Foods USA sent recently. Cucharealo, eh? Couldn’t find out what that exactly means, but it looks like it’s something new and geared towards the Latino market. Interesting that it says Top Ramen on it too – brand recognition! Awesome – let’s give it a go.

Here are the sides and back – click to enlarge, as usual.

The noodles are in a bag – the box has three bags. These are short and thin.

One of the three seasoning packets.

Nice color – tasted a pinch – had some niceness to it, that’s for sure!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a couple fried eggs, some shredded cheese and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt. This is great stuff! The noodles are again short and this is really a soup – spoon was used on this one. The noodles are really nice – they have a good consistency and there’s a lot of them. The broth is excellent – has a strong chili powder and cumin taste and has a decent kick to it. This is really quite a departure from the norm. I delighted in the whole bowl! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars – excellent! UPC bar code 070662081037 .

#353: Nissin Top Ramen Chili Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

So here’s one my lady got for me – chili flavor Top Ramen! So cool – dueling Chili flavor products back to back! Let’s rock!

A single packet. How they can tell this from a different packet is beyond me. Amazing.

Vivid reddish powder. Has a nice volume too.

So it was spicy and tasty. I also detected something I really really liked – a hint of cumin. This bound it all together nicely. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here. UPC bar code 070662010174.

Awesome Nissin noodle commercial from Japan

I thought this was funny – see, I call my wife Kit and she calls me Pup…

#320: Maruchan Hot & Spicy Picante Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

So what a shocker – we were strolling down the aisle of a big box grocery store and saw this sitting there. I like how they incorporated the Mexican flag into the packaging too! While trying to find a commercial for the last review (#319: Maruchan Oriental Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup) I found a TON of homemade videos for Maruchan Instant Lunch as well as official ones. It was insanity! test

One packet.

Powdery powder.

Click image to enlarge. Added one uno huevo. Wow now this is something different and actually I’m quite pleased. The noodles are great and the egg compliments well. It’s the amazing flavored broth – tons of turmeric and cumin I think are added to give it a really nice flavor; a almost like enchiladas or something. Really tasty – 4.0 out of 5.0 stars!
