I’ve tried a lot of these instant noodle snacks from GGE (aka Everybody Loves Good Good Eat). They come in little cubes, loose noodle style, round little cylinders and these strips. Let’s bust open this bag of GGE ramen snack and see what’s going on inside!
Wei Lih GGE Ramen Snack Tomato Flavor – Taiwan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, open bag, select one or more pieces. Open main facial opening (mouth). Place inside hole and close. Using teeth, provide an opening and closing action to allow internal processing. Finally, swallow and enjoy!
Here’s one of the pieces.
Finished (click to enlarge). The strips are pretty good – very crunchy. The tomato flavor is nice – a little more true to the taste of a tomato than you would find in western varieties I should think. They however aren’t my favorite. For a snack, I give these 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 074410679484.
Okay so first off, what’s GGE? Well, it stands for Good Good Eat. I’ve reviewed other varieties that were simnply called ‘Everybody Loves Good Good Eat.’ The little girl with the big hair is usually on the packaging (I think she’s the mascot) and usually has a somewhat happy expression, although I have seen her looking wistful or depressed at times.
I saw seaweed flavored everything on my trip to Taiwan. A lot of people would say ‘that makes sense – a lot of fishing, Asian people, you know.’ Well, I grew up on an island where fishing and seafood were king. What’s more, there’s an island across from Anacortes called Guemes island. A decade or two back a big brouhaha was made over a company that was going to bring seaweed farming to the north side of Guemest.
Surprisingly, people had a fit. I remember slogans like ‘wrap your sushi in lettuce’ started going around. Silliness. People get angry over things so easily – esdpecially things they don’t understand. Indeed, these stunk of racial overtones I find to be very ugly. Don’t know if they ever ended up having seaweed farming in the area, but one thing’s for sure – there’s a lot of seaweed and kelp around there. Anyways – let’s check out this instant noodle snack from Taiwan!

Here is a trifecta of the snacks. Indeed, they are small, cylindrical bite-size pieces.
Finished (click to enlarge). First off, these have a very nice crunch to them without being hard. They’re crispy and very ‘poppable’ due to their size. As for the flavor, they are salty with a seaweed taste and a little sweetness as well. If you like seaweed and crunchy stuff, this should be up your alley. For a snack, I’ll give this 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 074410732004.
