#653: Dragonfly Instant Noodles Artificial Pork Ribs Flavor

I thought today would be a nice day to have some pork ribs in noodle form! I wonder how it’ll be? I think it’ll pass the test as it’s yet another Dragonfly product. I know it’s wintertime and all but I think that Punksatawnee Phil’s Groundhog Day prediction was incorrect. He saw his shadow, predicting six more weeks of winter. On  the bright side, statistics show he’s been correct  – 39% of the time.

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

Clockwise from top: veggies, dry seasoning and finally the seasoned oil.

Seasonings ready to go!

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added a two egg omelet with a little Lindberg Snider Porterhouse & Roast seasoning and a dash of Chef Paul Prudhomme’s de Arbol chile powder. Since it was a bowl of pork noodles, I went with a little ham. Great noodles as usual. The broth was great too – a little bit of spicy and sweet and a nice meaty flavor. Love this stuff – 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 721557450956 .

This looks absolutely delicious. Yes – I’ll be happy to eat that!

This is pure awesome!

#453: Nongshim Savory Bowl Noodle Chicken Flavored Noodle Soup

So I thought I’d tried every single variety of these but I found yet another in California! This is just chicken – not spicy chicken. So here we go with the noodling!

A single packet of dry powdered seasoning.

Look at that! A mountain of powdered soup base! The veggies were hiding underneath the noodle block.

The picture reminds me of the old Dairy Queen commercials in which there was a mountain range made from chocolate with rivers of chocolate, caramel and strawberry syrups rolling down them and meadows of whipped cream and forests of peanuts. It was magnificent!

Click image to enlarge. I added a couple fried eggs, a pinch of Chef Paul’s Meat Magic and Chef Paul’s Chile deArbol powder. So this one was pretty good. I remember how much I enjoyed these when I reviewed them before (that is, the Beef & Ginger, Lobster, Hot & Spicy, Kimchi and spicy chicken). This one was good – worth 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.

So Nong Shim recently got in a little trouble with claims that their campaign for Shin Ramyun Black were misleading. Some people thought it was supposed to be healthierand it really wasn’t. Also, it cost two to three times as much. Anyways, here’s a commercial for it and then a kind of parody commercial afterwards

I guess I remembered it a little wrong but yeah this is the commercial I was mentioning earlier… I like the logo sculpted into the side of the thing. I wonder if any of that is actually chocolate because I saw a documentary showing food photographers using hairspray and shellac on french fries…

This is something fun to watch so enjoy.
