#3234: No Name Shrimp Flavour Oriental Noodles And Soup Mix – Canada

#3234: No Name Shrimp Flavour Oriental Noodles And Soup Mix - Canada

Another Loblaw’s variety found at the Canadian SuperStore. I like shrimp. Sounds interesting and lacking a name which I enjoy. My wife’s favorite color is yellow. Let us begin.

Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, boil noodles in 500ml water for 3 minutes. Add in sachet. Finally, stir and enjoy! There is an alternate method on this one which I think sounds interesting so that’s what we’re going to do today – cook noodles in 500ml boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain. Add a pat of butter, sachet contents and stir. Add seafood and vegetables. Enjoy!

Found this one at the Real Canadian Superstore in Richmond, BC. Was impressed – ended up with a ton of varieties from there. Kind of like a super Walmart but real and Canadian! Well, these are called No Name so that’s kind of funny. Let’s check ’em out!

A light powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, coriander, and hard boiled egg. The noodles came out pretty well – a little gummy but not too bad compared with other Canadian instant noodle experiences I’ve had. The broth tasted like a slightly milder than normal chicken flavor – comfort food style. Very domestic North American. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 060383758509.

#1647: No Name Shrimp Flavour Oriental Noodles And Soup Mix

Back in the day, there used to be a brand that was literally generic; they would have products with a white background and a very stark blocky black text. A can of dog food would simply say dog food. I think they’re long gone, but this is kind of the next best thing to it. No Name is a line by Canadian company Loblaw’s, a grocery store chain. Let’s give No Name a look!

Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add in sachet and fill to line with boiling water. Steep for 3 minutes, stir, and enjoy!

The soup base sachet. Notice that it says prawns flavor instead of shrimp flavor as printed on the outside.

Has a shrimp scent to it.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, mung bean sprouts and spring onion. The noodles had a kind of funk to them; kind of soggy with a filmy feel. The broth wasn’t bad – on the bland side but I’ve had much worse. It had a nice little sweetness to it I liked. The peas which were pretty common hydrated well. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 060383049812.

During the holidays, we watched the Will Ferrell movie ‘Elf’ and he drinks maple syrup at one point. Maple syrup is one of the best things that comes from Canada, and so I thought this Loblaw’s brand President’s Choice 100% Pure Syrup sounded like something to check out.

#1558: No Name Beef Flavour Oriental Noodles And Soup Mix

Here’s one I got from Justin M. from Winfield, BC up north of here in Canada! Thanks! This one’s rather fascinating to me as the brand name is literally ‘no name.’ It’s made in China for Loblaw’s, a Canadian grocery store chain. I’m crossing my fingers here; Canadian instant noodles haven’t really been my favorites – but this is a new one so we’ll have to see. With an open mind, let’s delve into No Name Beef Flavour Oriental Noodles And Soup Mix!

Detail from the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

Detail of the lid (click image to enlarge). To prepare, open lid to dotted line, add in boiling water to inside line, close, wait 3 minutes and stir. Enjoy! But wait – I would add in the sachet contents before the water. No mention of it and I think it’d be rather difficult to chew through the packet.

Has an interesting beef scent and a few pieces of dehydrated vegetables in there.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green onion, sweet onion, beef and a little ВКУСНАЯ СОЛЬ ЙОДИРОВАННАЯ (my sister got this stuff for me – it’s called ‘special iodized salt for the first course’ – I sprinkled a little on the beef). The noodles are kind of odd to be honest. On one hand, I find them to be mushy and funky, but on the other, they’re exactly like the noodles in Mrs. Grass’ soup, but instead of short, they’re long. The broth is pretty decent, with a beef flavor. It’s altogether very strange to me though; the texture of the noodle and the beef broth style of the soup; very different from most instant cups as well as very different from most store brand variants. Unfortunately, the issue with this one was in the vegetables. Everything was fine except the peas which has a very bitter and not enjoyable. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 060383049836.

This is awesome – William Shatner for frozen foods at Loblaw’s! This must be quite old!

Got a package yesterday from reader Justin M. from Winfield, BC up north – let’s check ’em out!

This is cool! So I’m always looking for ‘store brand’ instant noodles. They’re usually very common and kind of boring to many, but to me they’re fascinating. Large grocery chains often get private label instant noodles made for them. These Azami varieties are made for Loblaw’s up in Canada.

The top two are also made for Loblaw’s and are called ‘No Name’ which is pretty neat. The lower is a Mamee Oriental – veggie flavor. They’re for export. Thanks again!
