Re-Review: Samyang Foods Fresh Jjajang

Okay so I guess karma will get you. I dunno.

To be honest, I think putting that on certain instant products that have these kind of fresh noodle packs inside is a way to give the illusory guise of something less shelf stable, making one think it’s higher quality.
