This is an interesting one. Made in China for the US market. I found this one at a Fred Meyer supermarket here in Lynnwood – the last place I’d expect to see something like this. It’s nice to see stores expanding these kinds of things. Let’s give it a try!
Jinmailang Cup Noodles Chicken & Mushroom Flavor – United States
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add in sachet contents and boiling water to line. Cover for 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
An included fork!
The noodle block.
A dry soup base sachet.
A wet seasoned oil sachet.
A vegetables dry sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, baked chicken, sansyo, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and spring onion. The noodles were on the spongy side which was unfortunate. The broth had a slight chiekn flavor that was overridden by funky mushroom. Not among my favorites. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 6921555527252.
Here’s one I picked up a while back in Canada. JinMaiLiang makes all sorts of beefy ones – let’s check this one out.
The distributor’s sticker. Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add everything to 500ml boiling water. Cook for 3 minutes. Eat!

A nice round noodle block.
Powder base sachet.
Liquid seasoning sachet.
An oily paste.
The vegetable sachet.
Looks like carrot and green onion bit.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green onion, sweet onions and sukiyaki beef. The noodles are really good and have this almost glutinous outer film which makes them seem just a bit more hearty. The broth has a great beef flavor – I expected a bit saltier but it’s really nice and rich. The vegetables were present but not impressive. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 6921555581667.
