#2834: Wei Lih Good Good Eat Mexican Spicy Flavor Noodle Snack

Here’s another one I dragged back from Taiwan. I’ve tried a lot of these noodle snacks, but ones with Mexican flavor kind of have a special place in my heart. You see, the day my daughter Miri was born, I was up early in the morning and I thought I’d do a review. It was a Mexican snack noodle. My plan is to attempt to review something somewhat like it every year on her birthday. I can already see the confused look on her face as a teenager… Well, let’s crack this one open – by the way it’s a long ways until she has her birthday.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat. To prepare, open bag, grab amount you wish. Add to primary facial orifice (generally the mouth). Masticate. Finally, swallow and enjoy!

A small amount of the snack.

Finished (click to enlarge). I felt the same with these as the export version (review #2540). The noodles can be rather long and I found once or twice that during the initial chewing, they could jut out a little and push into my cheek or the roof of my mouth in an unenjoyable way – kind of a bad mouthfeel. The flavor though is pretty good – like a lightly spicy chilli cheese kind of flavor. They’re not bad. For a snack, I give these 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710199087701.

#2706: GGE Ramen Snack Tempura Flavor

Went to the new Daiso over in Lynnwood, Washington this weekend. I used to get lots of neat bowls from there but unfortunately, those days are over. This was one of the larger Daiso places I’ve seen but unfortunately, they had the crummiest selection of bowls. Makes me bummed out as they had super awesome ones in the past.

Anyways they had a lot of GGE snacks which kind of surprised me as these aren’t Japanese but Taiwanese. Hmm. Anyways, let’s give this one a try.

Interesting – short little strips of three noodles.

Finished (click to enlarge). The little strips are literally three noodles wide and about an inch or two at most in length. They have a very agreeable crunch and mouthfeel. What I like as well is the flavor – kind of a sweetness to it that’s very addictive. Very. Addictive. For a snack, I give this one 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 074410679460.

It’s snack time! So today we have a ramen snack from Taiwan. There a whole slew of different flavors and varieties – and shapes for that matter of these products. The first thing I do notice about these is that they’re called cubes, however, they look more like short cylinders to me. This being the case, it begs the question ‘doesn’t a crunchy cylinder sound good?’ I think they went with the right name, to be honest; BBQ Cubes sounds better than BBQ Cylinders. Let’s have a look.

Short cylindrical pieces.

Finished (click to enlarge). The pieces are a nice bite-sized shape. They have a very agreeable crunch – light and definitely not something one would break their teeth on. The flavor is a combination of sweet, a slight bit spicy and then a kind of BBQ flavor. The flavor isn’t overly salty or strong but more on the mild side. For a snack, I give this one 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 074410705855.

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.

Here’s yet another opone of the GGE noodle snack varieties – Mexican Spicy. There are so many of these varieties its kind of mind boggling./ Actually, when you go to Taiwan and go down the noodle aisle, these aren’t there. Indeed, there’s an aisle with chips on one side and noodle snacks on the other. Why do we have so few of them here? I can’t think of any USA branded noodle snacks really at all. It’s like they came out with a few varieties of ways to offer up instant noodles here in the US and then they just stuck with those and kind of quit innovating. I mean, what about a beef stew instant noodle bowl with beef? A A spicy cheese? A pizzas flavor? Closest we get is a cheap cheese cup. I think the instant noodle world in the USA should really go and just kick some major butt and try some new things. I mean hey – no risk, no reward, right? Anyways, let’s check out this snack noodle!

#2472: Wei Lih GGE Wheat Crackers Seaweed Flavor - Taiwan - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

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.

#2108: Wei Lih GGE Noodle Snack Wheat Crackers Original Ramen

Been a little while since I’ve done a snack noodle review, so here we are. This one is by Wei Lih and hails from Taiwan. Let’s give it a look.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, open bag, open mouth, insert food and enjoy!

Short, rounded pieces aplenty.

Finished (click to enlarge). What you get are short pieces of noodle that are crispy. Aside from that, not much. The flavor is extremely light; I detect a little salty and a tiny sweet. Kind of boring. Maybe better as a salad topping. For a snack, I give this one 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 074410727949.

Here’s another one I got down in Pleasanton, California a month or so ago. GGE is an abbreviation for Good Good Eat, as in ‘everybody loves good good eat.’ Kind of strange but we are talking about Taiwanese snack noodles here (see Leisure Meatballs). Anyways, let’s rip this bag open and check this snack out.

These appear to be scored strips of noodle dough that have been fried.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodle strips have a nice crunch – not hard as a rock or light as a feather, but somewhere in the middle range, maybe a little closer to the harder end of the stick. They have a nice texture and a good soy sauce flavor. For a snack, these get 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 074410705862.

Here’s one I got at the 99 Ranch down in Pleasanton, California a couple of weeks ago. So the GGE stands for Good Good Eat, as in ‘everybody loves good good eat.’ Yeah, I know – kind of weird. But hey – this is a Taiwanese snack noodle and they can be pretty interesting (see Leisure Meatballs). Anyways, let’s crack this bag open and look inside.
