#790: GreeNoodle Shiitake and Soy Sauce

Aha the GreeNoodle. I will be the first to admit that I think I’ve only liked one of these that I’ve reviewed. This one’s mushroom too, a flavor I rarely care for. But I’m really hoping I like this one.

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). I should also say that the Vulcan Science Ministry has found no evidence that time travel is possible.

Yes. They’re green!

The powdered seasoning packet.

I am not a big fan of mushrooms and really don’t know much about shitakes, but if they taste like skunky earwax, this powder’s spot-on.

Soy sauce packet.

This is pretty decent soy sauce.

Finished (click image to enlarge). As usual, I’m not really stoked on these noodles. While they are great as far as texture and chewing go, they have this strange aftertaste that reminds me slightly of what a freshly opened jar of vitamins has (kind of funny since they purport their rich vitamin content). The broth is mushroom flavored for sure. I must admit I expected it to taste worse than it does, what with the taste of the powder. Long story short, if you have to eat something that says healthy and you like mushrooms and all things earthy, languishing in health food stores and the like, I would say this is for you. It surprises me how much people really like this stuff; I guess my palate is a bit different. In any case, the more varieties of instant noodles, the better! I however can’t finish it I dislike it so much. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8850987139161 – get it here.

This guy’s been doing ramen reviews from time to time on YouTube and so I thought I’d put his up for this one. It’s a different view on this product.

#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.

#503: GreeNoodle Miso Made With Moroheiya

After the last time I reviewed anything by this brand, I got quite a few messages – agreeing with me, disagreeing with me, and even thinking I sold this stuff. Well, all I know is that I didn’t like it last time. At all really.

So here’s what it says on the back of the package about moroheiya. Interesting – a gimmick? I don’t know; I figure I’d have to eat a lot of it to find out.

Here’s what the noodles look like before they’re cooked – as you can see, very green.

A couple of packets – powder and oil.

Awaiting the noodles and liquid. I also added an egg for kicks.

Click image to enlarge. Well, this stuff tasted like dirt. It was deplorably strange. I added some soy sauce to it – and I will say RIGHT NOW that I’ve never felt the need to add something like that to a ramen I’ve review on here before. That being said… Noodles tasted funky. Broth was nightmarish. I really didn’t like it. You might, but I didn’t. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. You can find it here.

Here’s a video about GreeNoodle, by GreeNoodle!

Can somebody send me some of this stuff so I can review it?
