Indomie Samples From Eastland Foods

Got an unexpected box from Michael C. over at Eastland foods today!

An Indofood reusable shopping bag!

Ah-ha!

I reviewed the old version of the Indomie Mi Goreng cups a loooooong time ago. This is the new look – new size I think too. Thanks! I’ll review it soon!

#682: Indomie Instant Cup Noodles Mi Goreng Satay

Michael Chen over at Eastland Food Corporation sent me this a little while ago along with some other great samples! Thanks! Never have I seen this before, have you?

The top…

Here’s the side (click image to enlarge)!

Seasoned oil, sweet soy sauce and fried onions. What you’d expect in Indomie’s satay packs.

Dry seasoning and chili powder.

A folding fork? Awesome!

Unbagged…

Unfurled fork!

After you steep the noodles, you uncover and drain with the lid. Then dump all the seasonings in and stir.

Finished (click image to enlarge). My thoughts: the noodles come out fantastic, but the packets are tough to open and add and stir. I spilled the noodles a couple times here and there. The noodles and seasoning are amazingly good as their regular satay pack is and just slightly different too as the noodles are steeped. Excellent flavor, just a little tough for me to make work. I think others probably would have less trouble with it. I’m giving this a 4.25 out of 5.0! UPC barcode 089686180688 .

Awesome video narrated by Carl Sagan – first in a series I’ll do on here. Thanks taintedbloop!

A Kind Donation From The Eastland Food Corporation

Rode the bus home from work. I’ve had a hacking cough lately and was eager to get home. Got off the bus and was hoofing it up the street tgo my apartment when I thought I ought to see if there’s a package at the office. Well, there was.

I got an email last week from a guy named Michael Chen at Eastland Food Corporation.  He mentioned that they were going to be the sole distributor for Indomie on the east coast and would like to send some samples of some noodles. He asked what I would like to review-  he mentioned cups – that really caught my attention. I also asked if they had any marketing/promo stuff as well.

I gave him a call and we chatted about instant noodles for a while.He sent some cards, a couple nice calendars, and a letter:

He sent some marketing stuff!
Never seen any of these kind of things…

Mi Gorenbg cups and Mi Goreng Satay cups – oh wow this is awesome – never have I seen these before! Can’t wait to try ’em!

An array of Indomie varieties to re-review!

Wow – thanks to Michael Chen for a nice box of noodle stuff – I (and everyone else) will enjoy reviewing these!
