#3224: Rooster Chili Chicken Flavour Noodle Soup – Canada

#3124: Rooster Chili Chicken Flavour Noodle Soup - Canada

Another one from the Real Canadian SuperStore! Man, I just ran my knee into a metal bar that supports my desk. That really hurt. I’ve been doing a lot of walking yesterday – on my birthday last week I did 18,000+ steps – yesterday I did over 15,000. I’m knee deep into trying to walk as much as possible. I think by the time this post comes out I’ll have lost a lot more weight. I started in November, 2018. I was wearing size 48 pants – yeah… It’s March and I’m down to 42, so we shall see where I’m at then… Been trying to stick around 1,200 calories a day too… I’m going to bake some chicken to go with this one. I like chicken. Let’s look at this one.

Works well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 061483036801.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg and spring onion. Noodles are of a standard gauge and soaked up almost all the 300ml water used. Flavor is of tomato, however the spicy part is lost on me.

Here’s another one I got up at the new T&T Supermarket up in Richmond BC that’s at Lansdowne Centre. Or is it Lansdowne Mall? Either way, it’s a big T&T inside what used to be a Target store.

#2997: Rooster Chili Seafood Flavour Noodle Soup - Canada

Oh – Canada! How you doin’? So we went up to Canada as we usually do about once a month and we’d been seeing the place called ‘The Real Canadian Super Store’ every time but never visited. So it’s part of Loblaw’s, a mega supermarket group in Canada – the have lots of different stores up there under different names like T&T Supermarket, Loblaw’s, – I think London Drug? Anyways, yeah. This store was like a mega Walmart – but the difference is that it’s real and it’s Canadian. Great noodle aisle – lots of things I’ve not seen elsewhere. Let’s give this one a try – it’s made in China for the Canadian company.

Here’s another one we found at the Real Canadian Superstore in Richmond, BC. The last one was found in the more domestic area while this one was found with the more Asian food varieties.

#2920: Yum Yum Authentic Thai Style Instant Noodles Tom Yum Shrimp Flavour

#2920: Yum Yum Authentic Thai Style Instant Noodles Tom Yum Shrimp Flavour

I’ve been a tom yum fan for a while now, however in my very early days of reviews I wasn’t so much. It was either too spicy or too this, too that… But now I love the stuff. Here’s a little about it from Wikipedia –

Tom yum or tom yam (UK: /ˌtɒm ˈjæm/ or /ˌtɒm ˈjʌm/US: /ˌtɑːm ˈjɑːm/;[2] Thaiต้มยำRTGStom yampronounced [tôm jām] (About this sound listen)) is a type of hot and sour Thai soup,[2] usually cooked with shrimp (prawn).[3] Tom yum has its origin in Thailand. In recent years,[when?] tom yam has been popularised around the world.

The words “tom yam” are derived from two Thai words. Tom refers to the boiling process, while yam refers to a Thai spicy and sour salad. Indeed, tom yum is characterised by its distinct hot and sour flavours, with fragrant spices and herbs generously used in the broth. The basic broth is made of stock and fresh ingredients such as lemongrasskaffir lime leaves, galangallime juice, fish sauce, and crushed chili peppers.

Commercial tom yum paste is made by crushing all the herb ingredients and stir frying in oil. Seasoning and other preservative ingredients are then added. The paste is bottled or packaged and sold around the world. Tom yum flavored with the paste may have different characteristics from that made with fresh herb ingredients. The soup often includes meats such as chicken, beef, pork, or shrimp.

Sounds good to me – it’s been a little while since I reviewed a tom yum – let’s check it out!

Here’s the last of the potato chip varieties I’ve got for review. The hamper is dry of potato chips! Still makes me laugh a little – I would have never thought that instant noodle flavors would crossover to potato chips. Let’s check these out!

#2903: Nissin Demae Ramen Sesame Oil Flavour Potato Chips

Finished (click to enlarge). The chips are of a standard size. Also, they are ruffled. As to the mouthfeel, while crisp, they seem extra greasy which didn’t appeal to me. The flavor while tasty, didn’t really bring me a good correlation and unmistakable thought of sesame oil flavor Demae Ramen. For a snack, I give these 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.

#2877: Super Cup Instant Noodle Seafood Flavour

Found this one at the Hi-Life store at the Nangang Exhibition Center in Taipei, Taiwan. Notice on the image it says ‘improved taste’. Making this claim always gives me a bit of a laugh. You could also call it ‘different taste,’ right? Was it too watery before so the amount of liquid added recommendation changed? more of one ingredient? Less of another? Well, we shall never know because all it says is ‘improved taste.’ Also – improved for whom? Person on the left likes it, person on the right wishes it were like it used to be. Anyways, there’s no person A or B here – there’s just me and my tongue. Let’s give it a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, carved squid, Dodo fish ball and shrimp. The noodles were alright – thin and slight crumble.

It wasn’t too bad, but it could definitely use some more improvement from where I’m sitting. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8888240100153.

Thought I’d try something a little different today – used the selfie stick from Nissin Singapore to try and get a better natural light shot with my Galaxy Note 8.

Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles are a little different – slightly flatter and bouncier I thought. The flavor is definitely seafoody – small amount of broth, but Cup Noodles varieties are kind of that way when put in a bowl. Looks a little more logical in a cup. The winner here is the sheer amount of vegetables and seafood. It’s never-ending! This is way better than the regular Hong Kong seafood Cup Noodles I think – it’s just amazing and wonderful – and surprisingly, healthier! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4897878860012.
