#961: Trident Chow Mein Soft Noodles

2013_1_15_961_001

Here’s one of the packs that came from Australia! Thanks go to Melanie I. of Jannali, NSW for sending these and also thanks to Mark K. for getting her to do it! The last one was a ‘2 Minute Noodle’ while this one says they’re soft noodles. I wonder what the difference is?

Here’s the back of the pack and the answer to my above question (click image to enlarge). These get drained and then the seasonings stirred in.

The main chunk of the noodle block.

Powdered seasoning.

Not a huge amount.

Seasoned oil packet.

The oil has a light onion scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken, fried egg, stir fry veggies and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt. The noodles aren’t bad – flat and thin. The glavoring however is kind of boring; not like any chow mein instant I’ve had before. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 93101182300043

#638: GreeNoodle Yakisoba

Ah, my old adversary – the GreeNoodle! I’m hoping I like this one better than the ones I’ve had in the past – Yakisoba should be tasty; I hope!

Click image to enlarge. Pretty impressive numbers there – low fat, high fiber and protein and quite low in sodium for an instant noodle.

Yep – green noodles. Not that strange of a thing; you can easily find spinach infused pasta. This just looks a little different in a ramen block. Apparently the magical moroheiya makes all these health benefits and the fine green color possible.

Clockwise from top: veggies, liquid seasoning, powder seasoning.

Mounds of flavor awaiting some drained noodles.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Well, it’s green. These moroheiya leaves must be worth it, right? I rmember how much I truly detested the green tea Chlorella noodles I had a while back – gag reflex, engage! So let’s see here… The noodles are of good texture. The flavor is really good with the seasonings – until around chew number four or five when the funky earthy flavor kicks in. Then it’s kind of a gobble quick before more flavor happens. The veggies on the other hand were awesome – especially the corn! Weird. Of all the moroheiya filled GreeNoodle products I’ve tried thus far, this is definitely the best. A bit of sweet and spicy and good veggies despite the funky aftertaste. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. Generous. UPC barcode 8850987139253 – get it here.
